Re: EpDis: TKO

Dunno why, but I'm strangely fond of this episode, I think because it's particularly well acted by the guest stars. I really like the boxer (don't have the name at my fingertips) and the wonderful actor who plays rabbi Koslov (he recently passed away) is fantastic. Other things I like: the foreshadowing (Garibaldi, watch your back), and the general idea that humans are often seen by the other aliens as aggressive, pushy and culturally insensitive (the same charges, tellingly, that the human xenophobes in the series seem to level at aliens). It builds well on Ivanova's "emotionally stoppered" character, which gets so much development later in the series. So this one is a win for me, if not in my top picks.
