This review is a spectacular display of humorlessness and point-missing.

Morn remains an enigmatic character. He seems to have been quite a lively conversationalist and partier, although the cameras (and our viewpoints) just seem to have missed it.
His escapades remind us of how diverse the universe is!

The reviewer seems to be that kind of person who can't understand why Leslie and Hadley have fans.

Re: Retro Review: Who Mourns For Morn

Exactly, Who Mourns For Morn is a farce episode, and one of the rare times Star Trek succeeded at that. It's like a comedy from the 40s.

^I always dislike this reviewer's work. She reduces every episode to simple morality, as if it were no better than a soap opera.

In fact I was surprised to not find any ideological remarks in her review. Perhaps I was simply unlucky, but the few other articles I read of her were full of anachronistic criticisms that depict a 20 year-old tv show as a regressive piece of patriarchal propaganda. In fact, in both case, she shows a lack of hindsight.

Re: Retro Review: Who Mourns For Morn

I don't mind when people criticize my favorite episodes, so long as they criticize it based on an accurate understanding of the episode, without projecting one's personal politics and obvious biases into it.
