The Child

He hates this episode, and I think he's taking out the anger for CBS on it as well... Although a very good review IMO.

Eh. Not even Chuck can make this steaming pile of shite good. It's one of those that's so bad that even a few clips of it leaves me wanting a stiff drink to wash the taste away.

Watching the review, I get the impression that he might not be too keen on the Pulaski character...

Y'know, I think I might have picked up a hint or two in that direction m'self...

Well, of course he hates Pulaski. He watched long enough for her to speak. ;)

Sorry. I hate her, too. You all know that. I was half-tempted to have a throwaway line of her being assimilated in my crossover.

Meh. This ep was so bad that Pulaski's badness was lost among all the other bad.

I'd never heard the rumour about the reasons for McFadden's departure. Interesting. I remember at the time I thought it was very odd that she vanished, only to return again. The official line about why just never rang true with me. I often wondered if she had health issues - there are times in TNG episodes when she seems to have lost an awful lot of weight.

Really did hate this episode. Rape is ok if she enjoys it and a disaster because they assumed their shit was perfect.

Yeah, I never got the episode. They never dealt with the issue that she was practically raped by the alien that poses as her kid. I guess in the 24th century, rape is ok if a child is involved.
