Re: Does It Get Better???

I would consider "The Thaw" to be a good episode as well. It was different from the usual fare we got.

Re: Does It Get Better???

20 seconds of the Thaw.. pretty much what I remember as far as not liking it. Going to hopefully prove myself wrong on a rewatch though.

Hahaha, that clip was great.

I think in order to appreciate The Thaw you need to have a somewhat perverse sense of humor. Because that's really what The Thaw is, a comedy.

The one I can't choke down is "The Thaw". I have not rewatched that one in years. In fact it will be just about new to me it's been so long, when I finally make myself do it.

"Drat."


I LOVE "The Thaw"... for a myriad of reasons, the greatest being that final scene between the clown and Janeway which she ends with that throaty...

"I know."

I like the whispered reply of the clown even better.
"Drat."

Sure you have.

Yep.
There was a poster here from a year or two ago named Seth that liked the ep. too. So that makes 2 votes in favor.

Have you seen tripping the rift?

Lots of sexy sleezy girl Clowns.

I think there were clown strippers in an episode of Mad Love?

Re: Does It Get Better???

Think Tank: Interesting story, although I found Kurros to be extremely annoying. Every time he came on screen I wanted to strangle him. Still, this was a fine episode with some nice twists and turns, and a satisfying ending.
5/10

Juggernaut: I'm not a fan of the Malon, but this was still a decent outing for them. The writer's attempt to portray them as sympathetic characters worked quite well. B'Ellana was the real star of this episode, and Dawson as always gave a great performance.
5/10

Someone to Watch Over Me: A very funny romance episode that made great use of 7 and the Doctor. The only sad part was the ending. It almost made me cry.
7/10

11:59: Call me a sucker for romance episodes if you like, but I really enjoyed this episode. The message about progress was good, and I also liked the way that they not so subtly exploited the whole Y2K craze.
All in all, a nice feel good episode.
7/10

The only problem is it doesn't seem to gel with anything we've seen before in Trek.
Perhaps, but a similar concept was used in the Babylon 5 pilot (although never mentioned again).....

Re: Does It Get Better???

I liked all those episode but I think I liked them all a bit more than you, except perhaps 11:59 which would also get a 7 from me.

The part I liked the most about Juggernaut was it continued to elaborate on B'Elanna's problems and her increasing relationship with Tuvok and Chakotay and distancing from Janeway.

They are in Voyager's engineering dept and Torres has just dissed the Mahlon. He's walked off and Chakotay is calling her on her attitude.

TORRES: Diplomacy. Janeway's answer to everything.
CHAKOTAY: This isn't the Captain talking, it's me, and I'm giving you an order. Keep your temper in check. Understood? Understood?

Now that's an assertive first officer.

And even though Torres is distancing herself from Janeway... the Captain hasn't lost sight of her goal to rehabilitate her Engineering Chief.

Voy's bridge, after Chakotay nearly dies on the mission.

TUVOK: B'Elanna is unpredictable, Captain. Under these circumstances her volatile nature could compromise the mission.
JANEWAY: Your concerns are noted, but if I send you over there I'd be sending the wrong message. That I don't have faith in her. But I do.
TUVOK: Your faith is admirable, but logic suggests
JANEWAY: This isn't about logic, it's about trust. She'll come through for us. Now, give me a hand.

(Right season, wrong ep) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p65L5RxnPyc
