A so-so Week on Spike for ST: Deep Space Nine

  • Whispers -- O'Brien suspects a Starfleet conspiracy of massive proportions when he returns from a security briefing to find the entire crew of DS9 exhibiting unusual behavior.
  • Paradise -- Sisko and O'Brien beam down to a planet to find a human colony that has been stranded 10 years without the benefits of technology. But the leader of this colony is set on keeping her paradise unaltered, and tries to force Sisko into accepting their way of life.
  • Shadowplay -- Odo and Dax investigate the disappearances of several missing people in a small settlement, only to discover the entire village and its people are part of a sophisticated holographic simulatio
I'd subtract 1 star for Paradise and Shadowplay, both aren't all that. Whispers is overated, IMHO

Meh, could be worse. Paradise and Shadowplay lean a little to the boring side. But Whispers is a great episode.

Re: A so-so Week on Spike for ST: Deep Space Nine

No offense... but who cares?

Isn't Spike airing DS9 in the middle of the night? Since they're airing at a time when practically nobody is going to watch it, I don't see the point in given them any attention by discussing it every week.

Re: A so-so Week on Spike for ST: Deep Space Nine

Shadowplay is amazing solely due to RA and his scenes with Taya. Once again, RA drags the episode up to his level and salvages it to have some redeeming qualities. Just like he also did for some other episodes that are otherwise-unwatchable (way worse than Shadowplay) other than for RA's scenes.

Without RA I'd agree with Shadowplay down to 1.5 stars...but with RA I'd say he single-handedly doubles that rating to 3. That's presuming it's out of 5 stars, otherwise it would be less.

That's not the way it works out for everybody, with my DirecTV, I get everything 3 hours early (Damned east coast feed) But it works out so that it comes on at 11pm for yours truly. It may stink for many, but not for me.

No offense taken, but that show maybe the only exposure non-Niners have to the show. So, its not a waste.

Yeah, and also it's not like there is anything else much to talk about since DS9 is a dead IP.
