My Thoughts:
After the last couple movies I found myself in a romantic comedy mood... so decided to check this one out. And I am glad I did... as I enjoyed every moment of it. Though going by reviews I read for this one online... I am once again one of the few that did. So you may want to take that into consideration. Debra Messing looked fantastic... though I have always had a thing for redheads anyway. Basically this film is the opposite of Pretty Woman where the woman hired a male escort and then fell in love. But the story kept my interest through-out... and went by very quickly for me. I can easily see myself enjoying this one again at some point in the not to distant future. This DVD... as well as the last two I reviewed was given to me from a very generous friend. So once again I can thank her for sending me a film I thoroughly enjoyed.


My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

The One Where It All Began: The Pilot Marathon, a review by DJ Doena


Star Trek: Deep Space Nine



What's the show about?
At the request of the Bajoran government, Starfleet is to establish a Federation presence in their system following the withdrawal of the Cardassian forces. Deep Space Nine is a former Cardassian station that happens to be in the system that has the only known stable wormhole. And that wormhole leads to the Gamma Quadrant, to a point 70,000 lightyears away. But this wormhole is indirectly the reason for the greatest war the Alpha Quadrant has ever seen.

What happened before?
DS9 begins six years after the beginning of TNG and three years after Wolf 359. At Wolf 359 a fleet of 39 Federation ships fought one Borg cube - all were destroyed. Among the ships was the USS Saratoga and its XO, Lt. Cmdr. Benjamin Sisko, who lost his wife in that battle.

"Emissary"
Cmdr. Benjamin Sisko and his son arrive on the heavily damaged space station Deep Space Nine. Most of his crew hasn't arrived yet but he soon meets with his second-in-command, the Bajoran Major Kira. Sisko isn't sure he wants this assignment and his son to grow up here but then an extraordinary event takes place. They find the only known stable wormhole and suddenly the Bajoran system moves from "the outer rim" into the "attention center" of the Alpha Quadrant.

My Opinion
My favourite Star Trek show! It has a great story arc, even if it wasn't planned from the beginning as it was done with "Babylon 5". B5 and DS9 have many similarities which isn't that surprising since JMS (the creator of B5) has shown his B5 plans to Paramount. But they are also different since DS9 is anchored in the Star Trek universe.
