<< "Heading off to Eden, Yeah, Brother". Or something like that <g>.>>
I consider that ep a comedy---though it gave me the willies when I first
saw it; first the plants burn Checkov, who obligingly screams in the way
that only Checkov can, then the camera pans out over this lovely *lake.*
(Oh, yeah, you're REALLY gonna want to DRINK that stuff? I don't THINK
so!) Least that's what I thought on first viewing.
<<I actually like both TOS and NG most of the time. Wesley boy wonder gets
on my nerves, and the second doctor was annoying (but one of the Gene's
favorite actresses after Majel), >>
Interesting. Now, understand, I don't collect figurines of any type; my
addiction is books. However, I *do* have perhaps one of the few Kate
Pulaski figurines in existence. I rather liked her crumudgeonly
imperfections; she at least wasn't so insufferably perfect and utopian.
(Maybe I just liked her because she reminded me of a female McCoy?) It was
so refreshing to see an intelligent, competent woman who was more
mature---and not necessarily a babe (though Diana Muldar *was* a babe in
<< but it did pretty good and some times was wonderful. There are a number
of episodes I can watch over and over. And since I can recognize most
episodes in the first 10 seconds, I can make the decision pretty quickly.>>
My least fave TNG ep was Wesley and the Planet of the Runners, and Tasha
Visits Afro-world. Ranks down there with the guys with the Black /
Whitefaces and the Comms and the Yangs eps from TOS. My fave TNG eps are
"Inner Light," "Loud as a Whisper" and "Darmok." I also like the Klingon
episodes; usually they're strong. All great stories!
<< I go to enough of the fan run cons to have met several of the Eden
episode actors, they are quite nice actually. Even Walter Koenig is a
sweetie (and SHORT).>>
It surprised me how short and tiny most TV actors are, though that's not
ALWAYS true. I once saw the costumes from Mel Gibson's *Hamlet.* It
shocked me how *shoddy* they looked up close; I've seen better work in SF
costume masquerades and in the SCA. Though I'm sure there are limits on
time, budget and other considerations that fans might not always consider.
