    I am not sure where the analogue is. Does sfdebris have a personal issue with an actor? Why is complaining not a review?

    I've seen some of the sfdebris reviews of the arious shows he reviews. Some I agree with some I don't. Yes sometimes his reviews are negative and he complains but he always says it's his opinion.

    So that being the case if complaining about an episode isn't considered a review logically the reverse is also true and praising an episode isn't a review.

    An honest review can only start from hate.

    A negative review from a from a lover is probably as honest as a loving review form a hater, and at this point in the game only fricking children are impartial, so we're looking for transitioning points of view, and almost anything can make someone hate, but it's really hard to love anything or anyone, ever, after you turn thirty.

    Yep, that is true too because it also lacks objectivity.
    No film or TV show ep. is 100% perfect.

    The first episode of Lost was a hundred percent success, and the last episode of Lost was a hundred percent fail.

    Back to opening topic: VOY did not weaken the Borg. Any series with multiple Borg episodes would have had issues doing convincing stories based around the assimilation threat. Had TNG done this would we complain?

    DS9 had th Borg once.

    It scared the shit out of me.

    Enterprise had the Borg once.

    I threw my TV down a stairwell.

    DS9 didn't really do the Borg, they just showed us a new part of TNG's own Borg story.

    More like the Borg did DS9.

    If they hadn't killed Jennifer, gods know who would have been given that command in orbit of Bajor, and the Worm hole would never have been found, and the Dominion war would have been delayed for centuries.

    The Borg were just a tool of the prophets?

    The Phrophets are "pan-time".

    As soon as Sisko joined them, he had always been there and always been part of the decision making process that killed Jennifer. In fact, I don't think that Benjamin would have allowed anyone at all to have whacked his wife but himself. Slept with his father, that's some other buggers job, but killed his wife? That gig was all about Ben.

    You wouldn't be chuffed, if someone killed their spouse to make room for you?

    hmm... let's see.. dude kills spouse so I can move in and then one day I burn the pot roast despite it being a no brainer replicator pot roast. Should I be worried? What would Deanna say? How do I feel about the pot roast?

    There, there.

    No one cares about the roast, if you have enough pot.

    Ironically it was Colonel Green and his Optimum Movement, that fire bombed the last crop, but you'know World World III helped, not much of anything survived a hundred thousand atomic bombs spending themselves.

    It always would have been Sisko. The prophets had already seen it.

    Just like the Prophets always knew Winn Adami would be the bitch that let the Pah-Wraiths loose. She was destined. It didn't even require Opaka/Bareil dying for Winn to accomplish that feat, but it certainly made her job easier.
