Great episode, and a damn good review of it. Chuck's demonstrated once again that, for all that his reputation is built around ripping crap episodes apart, he's at his best when having a good look at the concepts surrounding a good one.

My favorite VOY episode and a great review, I was expecting him to have more fun with the simulated crew.

I will watch it later but I have wondered how he would deal with the Dark Side Voyager. Especially considering how much he... detests Janeway.

I think he shied away from playing with the dark side crew because they're pretty much his parody crew personified. The jokes don't really work when they're not jokes but what the characters are actually doing. That and given just how good this episode is, also my favorite Voyager one, I'm fine with him spending more time discussing the themes than cracking obvious jokes.

Just saw the review this afternoon. Good review for the episode, and it deserves its kudos. I did like how he had trouble with the Stupid neelix Moment. ;)

I would have to agree, his best reviews are the ones where he knuckles down on the episode. Granted when he has a joke of an episode he can often be funny.

Overall I thought this episode was average. The best parts are those with the doctor, well pretty much any episode that focuses on the doctor is gonna be decent.
