Re: More Jammer TNG Reviews

Saw that today. So far, I agree with some of his thoughts. I think he should have gave Ensigns of Command at least 3 stars, but really loved he gave the underrated Survivors a perfect 4. That was actually a surprise.

It's been almost a year since he wrote TNG reviews, so it was great to see the update.

Nice to see high ratings for The Enemy and The Defector - possibly by two favourite TNG episodes.

Re: More Jammer TNG Reviews

LOL Tomalak, I wonder why you like those 2?

But seriously I agree with you. The Defector is possibly one of the most perfect eps I think. Picard's Speech to the Admiral in the ready room is one the reasons he is so great.

^I was a bit surprised Defector didn't get 4 stars. It was a well played performance all around.

Hooray for "The Survivors"!

But "The Defector" and "Deja Q" deserved the full 4 star treatment as well--they're both Trek at its best.

And for the matter VGR's "Death Wish" and DS9's "Trials and Tribble-ations" deserved the full 4 star treatment from him too. IMHO

I don't get all the love for "The Survivors". It's not that I think it's bad, it's just that I don't find it to be a particularly memorable episode.

I'm looking forward to Yesterday's Enterprise. The Defector is easily one of the best, and it's a shame we didn't see the Romulans used so well more often.

I can't speak for anyone else but I really enjoyed "The Survivors". Some of the many reasons that I rank it up there and I didn't see Jammer mention:

The mystery was quite intriguing and I had no clue what was up until the very end when Picard masterfully detailed what was going on. I don't know about anyone else but I loved the sad look on Rishon as she was confused that she wasn't real.

Anne Haney and John Anderson gave great performances as Rishon & Kevin Uxbridge. They really felt like they were a real married couple--Kevin was this stern gruff fellow and Rishon softened him up.

I loved the way she was kind to her guests and chided Kevin yet could stand her ground defending him against accusations by the crew. Those two gave really lovely performances and really helped make this not only a clever sci-fi mystery but a sad little love story to boot.

Then there was the nicely done ship-to-ship battle sequence. TNG rarely engaged in these showdowns so it stood out as a nice treat to see the old Enterprise get into a skirmish with such an intimidating looking warship which was well designed I thought.

The location shooting was nice. All things considered certainly a four-star outing.

//////
As for his other reviews I would have given the same scores on all except--Ensigns of Command(I would give it a 3-star), Who Watches the Watchers(3.5), The Vengeance Factor(2.5-3), Deja Q(3 stars I don't love it as much as most).

Wonder of wonders I finally found a kindred spirit who actually has something nice to say about "A Matter of Perspective". I agree it deserves 3 stars. It does lose a little something in repeats but if you don't watch it for a few years it can be fun.

//////

I also thought he was too harsh on "The Bonding"--a personal favorite. How can anyone not like this?

It has got heart, numerous compelling scenes(Riker/Data discussing familiarity impacting the sense of loss, Picard's wonderful speech), Worf opening up to Jeremy about his parental loss, Bev and Wes' little heart-to-heart about Jack, Wes revealing to Picard about his hidden resentment, the touching scene of the bonding ceremony to close out the hour and wonder of wonders Troi actually was put to good use in her role as ship's counselor.

And if the overflowing character moments aren't enough there is a pretty interesting mystery surrounding the forces on the planet. Plus the name "Koinonians" is just uber-cool. And unlike Jammer I appreciated the way RDM used the sci-fi idea of the aliens recreating the mother since it provided an interesting way to explore human truths and conditions through a more fantastical way.

/////
Afterall who wouldn't want to resurrect a parent and we got to see that and the emotions it brings to the surface. So yeah I'd give this an easy 3.5 star rating not a 2-star rating that puts it in the company of ENT's TATV, VOY's The Fight, Fair Haven etc. Just my two pence

If he doesn't give it 4 stars, then there must be something wrong with him.

Jammer Reviews Best of Both Worlds, and everything else in between. Just thought you'd all like to know, since that episode was one reason I was excited for him to start reviewing TNG.

Now whether he posts much, that's another question.

All ya got to do is look on the main page under the forum Deep Space Nine.

As for how much he posts here, well, it isn't much. I'm still wondering why he's a mod but that is a different issue entirely.
