One of my friends is a HUGE fan of this show; I watched the finale w/ her when it 1st aired. This summer, I watched a the pilot & 1st few eps of Season 1. This show hooked me from the start- it’s V well-made & has GREAT dialogue! I will cont. w/ the series, for sure. I’m esp. intrigued by Gaius & Starbuck, who seem to be 2 of the MOST interesting characters.
Star Trek: Voyager
It boggles the mind that this ST series (w/ the 1st female capt. & one of the most diverse casts) had LOW ratings until that (bimbo) Jeri Ryan joined in S4! I’m currently in the beginning of S3. Kate Mulgrew is a TERRIFIC actress- no doubt! And she had AMAZING chemistry w/ her 1st officer, Chakotay (Robert Beltran). But this can’t go anywhere b/c she’s his superior officer. (Loneliness is one of the main themes of this series.) The Doctor, Neelix, and Kes are V strong/well-developed characters. The crew of the Voyager has to think on their feet b/c they are hurled across the galaxy where there is no other Starfleet presence.
S4 is more exciting/eventful than S3 which seemed to drag at times. There a MANY changes going on and still a LOT of laughs. However, the tone of the show gets darker/more serious as Nancy (Mary Louise Parker) gets deeper and deeper into the drug business. Ambition/greed gets the entire fam in trouble, as well as Nancy’s ragtag crew and nabes. Silas and Shane are growing up, rebelling more, and crying out for more of their mom’s attn. Shootings, fires, and (dangerous) romances can’t keep Nancy down- she manages to survive! Look for some (unexpected) guest stars, too.
