Ep 209: Out of their minds
While this was an interesting episode with the chance of watching the cast try to portray other members of the cast, I really hated this episode. Sorry Paeter, there must be something wrong with me. Yes, it was good seeing each member's acting abilities stretched, and I can only imaging how this story line came about (I can see Ben or Anthony sitting in with production/writing staff one day and impersonating each other (or someone else) and voila). but for me, since this episode didn't really seem to move the plot forward and didn't really enhance the storyline, I was somewhat bored.
Ep 210: My 3 Critons
I had originally thought this episode had spit out the Id, Ego, and Superego versions of John, but remembered as it went that it was an evolutionary story. Again, since it wasn't a meta-plot story, I was ho hum. that's just he way I am, I like meta-plots. However, the conversation this one might bring up about creation/evolution/moralism(?) makes it worth watching. I think one thing I definitely didn't like is that evolved John seems to have lost his emotions. Okay, technically in the ep he said he did feel, he just accepted a decision quicker. I'm not sure if I like the idea of us "evolving" and becoming in essence Vulcans. If anything, I would think that with increased intelligence would come an increase capacity and desire for emotional connection. but maybe that's hopeful thinking.
Ep 211: A Kiss is but a kiss
I'll wait till Paeter catches up and posts on this ep.
