Reviewer : Indefatigable Rating : 0
Review : Awful episode! For starters, I don't like Okona (presumably his name is a distortion of O'Connor) as he seems to be a cross between Del Boy and Harry Mudd (the worst elements of the two). The Comic wasn't funny either, he was just plain annoying, and Data's attempts to imitate him just made him look silly. "My timing is digital," got the only laugh of the whole episode. Still, I can't simply criticise an episode for not being funny, and American humour is often a bit weak anyway. Firstly, why did Picard ever decide to back down in the face of a vastly inferior opponent? He could probably have sorted everything out without having to do that. The resolution seems unconvincing as well. I was glad when this one was over.
Reviewer : =NoPoet= Rating : 0
Review : The only thing outrageous about this episode is how bad it is. It's so unfunny it actually becomes a kind of anti-comedy. The only thing worse would be if Data did a nudge-nudge wink-wink at the camera, with his face totally devoid of emotion (what a nightmarish image that evokes!). I hesitate to say it's so bad it made me poo my pants, but I'd recommend investing in a cork and some sealant before watching this episode. The bad thing is my family also saw this episode and they pooed their pants too, creating a sense of blame that has haunted me for twenty years. Thanks a lot, David Landersberg, Lance Dickson and Les Menchen.
