Re: EpDis: A Distant Star

A excellant the second season is one of my favorites and it will show in my ratings for the eps as well.The highlight at least for me was Sheridan seeing an old friend again .This one goes alot better in establishing the friendship between May nard and Sheridan than the war prayer did with shaal mayan.I thought the two mens chemistry on screen came off better and believeable.The B story was good as well with the food advice.Garibaldi's story provides alittle more insight in to his character involving the bagna clauda

Re: EpDis: A Distant Star

One of my favourites on first viewing. It was a "WHAM" episode, and I liked Keffer. (So shoot me with a Nerf ball.)

Re: EpDis: A Distant Star

IMHO, this is a good ep. Not one of the great ones, but entertaining nonetheless.

When I first saw this episode I loved it, now I only like it. I thought the entry of the Cortez was brilliant.

Re: EpDis: A Distant Star

It's okay. We get more Shadow stuff, showing us that they are stepping up their campaign, but this still wasn't brilliant.

Re: EpDis: A Distant Star

Yeah definitely a minor ep in the grand scheme of things and reminds me of a disadvantage of watching the series so many times: the revelations of the Big Bad Shadows get less and less important.

I always think of this one as the end of the series' warm-up period.

Re: EpDis: A Distant Star

Meh. Can't get enthusiastic about this one, difficult to say why. I don't know, I just can't help feeling the whole "self-doubt-itchy-feet" think was annoyingly and uncharacteristically whiney (Ok hit me), and the Cortez looked like a starving gulper eel. The "food plan" bit was hilarious though. Anyone else prepared to agree that Stephen was *very* wise not to say that "But with very nice borders" line to Susan's face?

Maynard spoiled the whole thing. Wow. Even *I* can act better than THAT! I mean, WTF?? It was actually embarassing, IMHO. Where did they find this guy?

Re: EpDis: A Distant Star

You've got to be kidding. Russ Tamblyn is great. He is the best thing about the ep. A little over the top, at times, but that's what I like about him. He was truly great from the mid 50s to the mid 60s. He is considered a cult actor. Here's his IMDb entry:
