Trekathon 185: Suddenly Human (TNG)

April 4th, 2010

After a wrong of some pretty strong episodes, this one was black to ‘bleh’ – Picard learns how to be a parent.

It really, really bugged me throughout the episode that no one was even considering the option that maybe it be best for the child to stay with the family that has raised him from infancy. It just seemed like such a blind spot for a group of people who are normally pretty savvy to other options. That undermined most of what the episode, because instead of going ‘how will they tame this child’ I was going ‘why are they doing this’.

Although I do have to say: I kind of enjoyed Talarian music.

185 down, 552 to go.
