Reviewer : Satan Rating : 5
Review : A very calm episode solely devoted to character development and humor, something that later Voyager episodes rarely did. I loved seeing Seven take a stab at dating (and tearing Chapman's ligament dancing was funny), and the scenes with the drunken ambassador and the crew trying to sober him up before Janeway's return were hilarious.

Review : The poor old Doctor. This was certainly a good episode for character development. A hologram who spent the first three years carving out his own personality guiding a Borg through the same thing. The dating plot made an excellent vehicle for that, with echoes of "In Theory" and perhaps "Pygmalion". 'You Are My Sunshine' was a highlight, and I think that Robert Picardo and Jeri Ryan did their own singing. If so, then she does indeed have a wonderful voice. We also got to see Seven's deadpan wit on one or two occasions. The B-plot, with the puritanical ambassador indulging himself, reminded me of a P.G. Wodehouse story (not a good one). It was really the only blemish on what was otherwise a well-written episode. Finally, why did Paris sabotage the Doctor's date with Seven? Maybe he thought he was not playing by the rules of the wager.

Review : An excellent episode. However, I am annoyed that the Doctor/Seven relationship was never carried further.
