First off, I'm sorry for my prolonged hiatus -- between the end of work, a twelve-day road trip, and moving into my new house and starting up classes, I've been swamped and internet connectivity has been low of late.

I'll try and catch up with my posts on already watched episodes (let's see if I remember anything about them!) and then start watching Trek again.

To start things off:

Episode Notes: In which VOY tries to do noir, and fails. )

Overall Reaction: Do shows need a womanizer character? They're so boring. Unless they're Kirk. And someone's always being framed for murder, and noir pastiches are always being attempted, and, frankly, VOY, I'm over it.

But, man, was the femme fatale of this piece doing her damnedest to be Barbara Stanwyck in Double Indemnity or what?

Star Rating: * 1/2

Quote of the Episode: Whatevs.

Episode Notes: In which Kim receives a booty call. )

Overall Reaction: This was definitely one of those episodes where I payed more mind to the minutiae than to the overarching plot, though I will say that, dude, Voyager, it sucks that you flew through a living being. However, I am pretty sure that I recognized your solution to the problem from MAGIC SCHOOL BUS.

As The Magic School Bus is MADE OF WIN, this is alright.

Star Rating: ** 1/2

Quote of the Episode:
"B'elanna's the only one I know to try and kill her animal guide." (Chakotay, reinforcing my love of Torres)

Episode Notes: Oh, Neelix. )

Overall Reaction: They... they had an organ-stealing episode... and they aren't Nip/Tuck... and they made me like it?

Star Rating: *** 1/2

Quote of the Episode:
"He's just one big...hormone walking around the ship." (Neelix, on Paris, aptly)

Episode Notes: Apparently, I have a lot of them. )

Overall Reaction: Not the strongest introductory episode, in that I didn't find it very memorable, but it was enjoyable.

Now I just got a phone call from a distracted sounding man with a charming British accent and now my train of thought has been entirely derailed.


Star Rating: ***

Quote of the Episode:
"Whatever you need is what I have to offer. You need a guide - I'm your guide. You need supplies - I know where to procure them. I have friends among races you don't even know exist. You need a cook? Oh, you haven't lived until you've tasted my Angla'bosque! It will be my job to anticipate your needs before you know you have them. And I anticipate your first need... will be me!" (Neelix, a wonderful salesperson)

My trusty Trek guide, "The U.S.S. Make Shit Up" by Voltaire, assures me further that Seven of Nine will have a "smashing ass and a lovely set of tits," but as she has yet to be introduced in the first eight episodes of Voyager, she will not feature in my traditional "I have started watching a new spin-off!" character commentary.

As to my overall reaction to the show so far: I think I like it, but... I did watch Lost in Space, you know.

Characters. )

Short version: I like the ladies.

Also: I think I would read Janeway/Torres, Janeway/Tuvok, Janeway/Picard, Janeway/Uhura, Janeway/Dax, Janeway/Kira, or JANEWAY/A SHITTON OF TREK CHARACTERS. I am not proud of this.
