When that show is good, it is just SO good. I mean -- tonight's episode was entirely predictable. Two minutes in you could guess the major crisis and the inevitable outcome. I simply didn't expect to have my guts wrenched inside out in the course of watching it unfold.
Anthony Michael Hall is just amazing. And it was really neat to see him onscreen with Ally Sheedy again. But really all the casting this week, stunt and non-stunt, has been excellent. And except for one single sexist, homophobic episode that made me want to hit Michael Piller with a brick and ask him what the hell he was thinking, the storylines have been universally thought-provoking, chilling at times...very Classic Trek.
