A Canadian Mennonite's sodden sermonizing on movies, music, miscellaneous.
I only saw about the first two seasons of Voyager before I bailed on the show, so take my opinion with a grain of salt. I really liked the actors and the characters (minus Neelix and Kes) but the writers didn't seem to follow through. The idea of stranding everyone far from home was a questionable idea, because then the show turned into sort of Gilligan's Island, where every episode they would look for a way home, and every time you knew it could never work because the show still had several more seasons to run.
I had troubles with it too, and lost interest shortly after Seven of Nine (or "Eleven of Ten" as I preferred to call her) was introduced. The Trek standard for broad-strokes ACTING!! was wearing me out, and characters like Neelix weren't helping. But my antipathy paled next to Robert Beltran's (Chakotay). He became very vocal in his discontent, particularly with the writers, who he thought werer witless fanboys. I loved his interviews -- very caustic.
