Blackadder: Back and Forth, a review by Tom




Blackadder: Back and Forth


My thoughts:
Great reunion special for Blackadder! Here we again have a chance to see Queenie from Blackadder II. And a chance to see our characters in modern times.

My Thoughts:
I went into this one not expecting much. When it comes to Jack Black it really can go either way... I have liked half the stuff I seen him in... and the other half I just couldn't stand. And the trailer really wasn't any help either. It looked like it could be right funny... but at the same time it looked like it could have gone the other way and been just stupid. After watching it... I have to say it had it's moments... but or the most part I really just wasn't impressed. Thankfully this is a DVD I got for free. But I wouldn't recommend wasting your time to watch this one.

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - Marathon, a review by DJ Doena


Disc 6

Soldiers of the Empire
Synopsis: Martok takes command of the IKS Rotarran, a Bird of Prey whose crew has not achieved a victory in months. Worf joins the crew as first officer for this mission, while Dax takes the post of science officer. But Martok has changed in the two years of his imprisonment, he is cautious and unwilling to take any risk - but that's unworthy of a Klingon. Worf has to do something or the morale will break down completely.

My Opinion: I love the Klingons, especially in DS9. And this was a great episode in my opinion. How Martok wavered and how Worf helped him and risked his own life - I loved that part. I especially liked that this was an all-klingon episode - except for Dax, but Dax is highly honoured in the Klingon Empire.

And for what do we need Esperanto, when we have Klingon? It sounds far better.  ;D





Children of Time
Synopsis: After passing a giant energy field surrounding an entire planet the crew of the Defiant finds a colony of 8000 people - their descendants. The Defiant tried to escape the barrier and travelled 200 years back in time and crashed. The survivors built the colony and lived their lifes there. Only the Dax symbiont and Odo are still around from the original crew. The question is: Can the crew escape this time but what happens then to the colonists?

My Opinion: The episode was good - until the end, I hated the end. To see all these different people wiped out from existance because one man wanted to save his secret love and Odo of all people, the man who despises injustice above all else. It just didn't fit.

Blaze of Glory
Synopsis: The Maquis has been destroyed, most of its members were killed by Dominion forces. But they have one last ace in the sleeve. They have launched cloaked missiles to Cardassia. These missiles are loaded with bioloical and chemical weapons and will cause the death of millions and they will cause a retaliation strike against the Federation. Sisko needs Eddington to stop these missiles.

My Opinion: This was a good closure to the Eddington storyline. He finally got what he wanted, to die in an heroic act, "for the cause". I thought that it was a good idea that he didn't simply went to prison and was forgotten. But I also liked the part where Nog tried to get respected by the Klingons, Martok in particular.

Empok Nor
Synopsis: The station needs to be repaired but it's unlikely that they will get spare parts from the Cardassians. Chief O'Brien leads a salvage team to the abandoned cardassian station Empok Nor which is of identical design as DS9. They take Garak with them because it's likely to be booby-trapped. But there are unexpected guards on the station...

My Opinion: Even though there is no up and down in the universe drifting ships and abandoned stations are always portrayed as if they had keeled over. ;) The episode was really good, it was dark, the enemies were dangerous and we've seen what Garak is capable of. We've seen him before doing terrible things but these happened in the "comfy" surroundings of an interrogation cell. This was a combat situation but I guess when one was in the Obsidian Order one needs such skills to survive.
