So I really dug Deep Space Nine on DVD. Never got a lot of chance to watch it when it aired as we were without television at that point. Picked up the first DVD set way back when and stuck with it all the way. Beauty.
Based on that joy I picked up the first season of Voyager a few months ago and watched it.
Not as good. Not exactly bad but not as good as DS9. Kind of dull. Most characters not all that interesting, yadda yadda.
I tell myself, “Self, NextGen sucked ass the first two seasons and ended up being really good. Even DS9 got stronger as it went along. Give it another go.”
So I pick up Season 2 used for about 1/3 list price.
And the first episode has them meeting Amelia Earhart for God’s sake.
So what’s the deal? Is it going to get better or what? I know some people really don’t like Voyager but most of that always struck me as unreasoned hatred. And I discount that because when DS9 started there was a similar ‘it sucks!’ movement about.
