I just noticed this, and wasn't sure if anyone else has, but look at Rikers hand

Riker's lucky that the fact his brain shrunk didn't have permanent effects on his mind once he was restored...

Re: Riker's got an attitude

One of my guiltiest of guilty pleasure episodes. I remember as a kid thinking it was hilarious how Picard cowers behind Data as de-evolved Worf tries to bust down the door and Data casually says, "it is large". I was watching it recently and it occurred to me (particularly in the 'Caveman Riker' and 'Spider Barclay' scenes) how this episode may be more like a cheesy original "Star Trek" episode more than any other TNG episode. I can't help but think of "Star Trek" when I see the crewmembers acting crazy and the weird make-up/costumes for monsters, albeit in a much darker way than the original series ever did it. I can't decide what is funnier between Riker becoming an idiot who can't finish his sentences and his caveman tantrum.

Picard also flips the camera the bird in, I think, Devil's Due.

The script she had to work with wasn't Gates' problem, and I think she did a good job with aspects of it. She got some interesting angles out of the bridge and there were some really atmospheric moments, too.
