Message in a Bottle

Just watched this for the first time in years and was wondering where do I go to get those 48 minutes of my life back?

God that was terrible.

Really? You hated it? I love that episode. I think the two EMHs are hilarious together! But, like my mother always says, "That's what makes horse racing!."

Re: Message in a Bottle

The script makes no sense and Andy Dick does nothing but play Andy Dick.

Then you have the Prometheus take a pounding from a Nebula class starship yet one hit from a Romulan torpedo knocks the shields down to 20%.

I really love that episode, but the EMH Mark 2 is a little gay-ish... I hope my ship never gets one... (If I had a ship...)

I think Shatnertage would agree with you on this episode.

I like it, but I pretty much like it in spite of the accursed Andy Dick.

How did that guy get so popular anyway? If I met him, I wouldn't ask for an autograph, I'd boot him in the shins.

This is one of my favorite episodes.
Think my favorite bit is when Seven zaps the Hirogen. Janeway's and Bellana's reactions afterward, priceless.

Re: Message in a Bottle

I love the ep. I think it's hilarious the Doctor ends up with another EMH even more precious than he is. It's like everything about the Doctor evolved and became more so even his self absorption!

I love it when Mom walks away, and the "Big sister" gives Seven respect.

I liked the episode. Part of me wishes the first visit to the alpha quadrant wasn't a comedy episode, I wish the Romulans weren't so hapless (these people stole Starfleet's deadliest weapon?), and the idea that only six people knew how to fly the Prometheus is a joke (how many people would have been involved in it's design and construction?), but I enjoyed it for what it was.

I did enjoy the other three episodes on the disc (season 4, disc 4) Waking Moment, Hunters and Prey.

Re: Message in a Bottle

I absolutely loved that episode! It's a great Doctor episode (as they usually are), and Andy Dick had a pretty good dynamic with him (and I'm not an Andy Dick fan).
It was a great light-hearted comedy episode, and is still an important episode for the Voyager crew. And despite all of the fun, I found the ending quite touching. I think I got a little emotional when Janeway said "60,000 light years seems a little closer today".

I'd call it a guilty pleasure. Not a really good episode, but some fun moments and nice special effect. Some really over the top cheesy moments too. Janeway's face in the last 5 seconds of the episode......

I really liked this 1. 1 of the main reasons was the music. I could listen to the score during the Prometheous first sepporation all day.
