Re: The least disliked episode of VOY - Final Round

Merged Teya and jimbotron's counts... the anguish of adding one accurately.

Adding a point of my own to Blink of an Eye for the same reasons I've been voting for it the last few rounds.

Living Witness - 0
Timeless - 0
Counterpoint - 1
Blink of an Eye - 3

Re: The least disliked episode of VOY - Final Round

I'll try Counterpoint again, but I think I know where this is going. I really like Blink of an Eye so I'll miss it (even though I'd get rid of it before Living Witness and Timeless).

Living Witness - 0
Timeless - 0
Counterpoint - 2
Blink of an Eye - 3

Blink of an Eye is gone. I really like it but the others are better. Also, why couldn't Voyager just send accelerated messages to talk to the planet? Don't they have the technology?

Janeway falls in love with a gestapo agent hunting je-- I mean telepaths. Certainly believable. There's a good dynamic between Kashyk and Janeway but the other two are better. So Counterpoint.

Re: The least disliked episode of VOY - Final Round

I'm tempted to vote for "Living Witness" sure it's one of VOY's best but it has a massive plot hole in it. But because it is one of VOY's best I'm going to overloook the plot hole and go for "Counterpoint". Sure it's a good episode but not as good as the other 2.

Living Witness - 0
Timeless - 0
Counterpoint - 3

Re: The least disliked episode of VOY - Final Round

And for my vote in the very final round...

Timeless. Yes, "Living Witness" has a huge plot hole, but it's a great story and a great concept.

Living Witness - 0
Timeless - 1

Re: The least disliked episode of VOY - Final Round

Tough, very tough. Both are VOY at it's best. But I have to pick one and unfortunatly it's "Living Witness". If "Living Witness" had been up against any other episode other than "Timeless" in this run-off I wouldn't have voted for it. But it misses out due to the plot hole.

Living Witness - 1
Timeless - 1

My ideal final two.

My favorite is Timeless, so Living Witness gets a vote.

Re: The least disliked episode of VOY - Final Round

My mind's a blank - what's the big plot hole in Living Witness, is it that there's an EMH copy?

They can't copy him before that episode. But they manage to make a backup module, promptly lose it, then can't copy him again later.

Back on topic... this is hard. They're both great episodes, but in the end a great doctor episode vs a great Kim episode... Doc wins. Timeless.

Re: The least disliked episode of VOY - Final Round

Super hard but I love the mirror feel of Living Witness(seriously I would have love if in the end it was a world in which the Terran Empire last to the 24 century and had sent them as an advanced force) so Timeless get my vote
Living Witness - 2
Timeless - 3

Re: The least disliked episode of VOY - Final Round

I love Living Witness, but I'm finally going to vote for it. It's a blast seeing the crew in a totally evil vein (VOY's version of Breaking Bad? Hmm...) It also showed how easily history can be built on misinformation.

Timeless for me though is a very emotional story, which wins it for me. Tortured Harry in one episode has more gravitas than normal Harry had in the rest of the show. He's desperate to make things right at any cost. Things are reset at the end, obviously, but Harry receiving a message from himself was the perfect ending.

Of course they tried to rip off the story with Endgame, which was nowhere near the same level.

Living Witness - 3
Timeless - 3
