    S04.E13: Man of Worth

    I liked how Roger and Brie embraced like "two humans who have chemistry." Damning with faint praise, indeed. On the subject of the couple's mad dash into each other arms, may I just say how impressed I was with Sophie Skelton's running skills? She was picking 'em up and putting them down like she was competing in the 100-meter dash ... in a Colonial-era dress.

    S04.E11: If Not For Hope

    Thank you for adding a new phrase to my vocabulary :-)

    Dr. Janet Fraiser

    I never saw it, either, but I went out of my way not to see any hints of 'ships on his show. It's not that I'm against 'ships; I just didn't trust the writing staff to get them right.

    All Episodes Talk: What's Up Doc?

    Oh, yeah ... I can stomach Return of the Evil Copter because Sherry Stringfield just acted the hell out of that episode. And I even liked Donal Logue. CHUCK: "They brought their own nurse and that bitch wouldn't let me ride." SUSAN: "That bitch saved your life!" Of course, TPTB had to screw up even that semi-sweet relationship.

    Star Trek: Enterprise

    Preach it! Season 2 of Enterprise was pretty good in spots, but almost unwatchable in others. Scott Bakula is one of my favorite TV actors, but I almost gave up on the guy during this season (he redeems himself pretty well in Season 3, though). The problem, I believe, wasn't with Bakula but with the gawd-awful writings in places. You've mentioned "A Night in Sickbay," and I never will defend that mess, but at least it was a hot mess, compared to the lifeless whatever that was "Precious Cargo," which is my least-favorite ENT episode. What made these horrible episodes so especially frustrating was that Season 2 also had some really good episodes, like "Dead Stop" and "Cogenitor," so it wasn't as if the writing staff was simply unable to put out quality episodes. I guess they figured, "hey, it's Trek ... those morons will watch anything."

    Untreatable: Unpopular Opinions

    I'm sorry, but this is a thread for unpopular opinions :-)

    It is a really, really good episode, but I'm still partial to "A Miracle Happens Here," from Season 2 ... all the goodness without the Amanda Lee creepiness at the end.
  8. This is my opinion. When I think back on this movie, I hardly recall the scene at all, but I will remember the telegram scene or "There's no crying in baseball" or "If it was easy, everybody could do it" probably forever.

    Star Trek: The Next Generation

    Hope there's occasional interactions with other Trek series characters

    Season 9 is almost unwatchable for me because of the Carter-Abby shenanigans. I never minded the show for displaying the characters' flaws — perfection is boring — but that pairing from hell was a train wreck waiting to happen from the word go.

    Ant-Man and The Wasp (2018)

    Finally saw this and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was much better than the first one, IMO. The funniest part, of course, was Luis' truth serum monologue. It was very satisfying to see that his motor mouth exasperates the bad guys, also. And I loved how Luis' mates had his back ... Dave saying, "You pay the dime, you've got to listen to the whole song" was a great line. I think I would pay to see an X Cons movie. The action sequences were marvelous, especially the chase scene through San Francisco. Three or four times through that sequence, I caught myself asking, "How did they do that?" The mid-credits scene was, of course, a major comedown from the light-hearted shenanigans, but at least it did firmly tie the Ant-Man franchise into the MCU as a whole. Dang, Michelle Pfeiffer is still a gorgeous woman. Does she have a Dorian Gray-type portrait stashed away somewhere?

    Small Talk: County General Is Always Open

    Bonus internet brownie points is you scream, "Is he conscious? IS HE CONSCIOUS?"

    Oh, my goodness, yes. There is wall-to-wall greatness in this episode, but strangely enough, my favorite little part is a blink-and-you-miss-it scene at the end of the third or fourth act: The camera is panning around the chaos in the ER before it settles on Haleh comforting a small child. Gradually, all the sound except for Haleh's singing — and, boy, can she sing — is removed as we go to commercial. Perfect. Simply perfect.

    Well, if the purpose of Memorial Day is for us to remember, and remember is the same thing as "stuck in our brains forever, no matter how much we'd love to forget" then Maggie/Abby episodes are definitely Memorial Day material.
