Episode Notes:
+ I find it entertaining that the next time we see Barclay, he is dressed in essentially the same costume he once made Wesley wear on the Holodeck:



+ Okay, it was really more like what he made Picard wear, but any excuse to post Wesley eating pie.
+ You know, for someone who apparently has no emotions, Data sure has a real bitchface when he's forced to watch subpar theatricals.
+ Before I realized that Barclay was Barclay, I wrote that he was handsome. OOOPS.

Overall Reaction: My first thought was OH MY GOD IT'S BROCCOLI and my second thought was IS HE GETTING REAL THERAPY? PLEASE TELL ME HE'S GETTING REAL THERAPY. I'm not sure he is getting real therapy, and if he is, it's still from Deanna, which seems counterproductive to me. But I honestly did enjoy this episode. Dwight Schultz is a solid performer, and I feel a great deal of empathy for Barclay. The Flowers for Algernon plot is always an interesting one, and it was entertaining to see him waltzing around the Enterprise, imperiously correcting Einstein and greatly improving his Cyrano de Bergerac performance.

Star Rating: ***

Quote of the Episode:
"Has Mr. Barclay done anything that could be considered... potentially threatening?"
"Well... he did make a pass at me last night. A good one." (Picard and Troi)
