When I was growing up, my mom was a huge Star Trek:Voyager fan. I usually wound up watching it with her, and ever since then I remembered it fondly. I am in no way a Trekkie, and Voyager was the only ST series I ever watched. I just remembered it as a fun TV show that I liked a lot.
I should have known better than to trust the judgment of my ten-year old self.
When I saw that the entire series was now available on Netflix, I thought, “Great! I can re-watch an old favorite!” So I settled down with my Apple TV and a cup of tea and my jaw dropped to the floor when I realized that the show I remembered and the show I was watching were not remotely the same thing. Basically, I did not remember how balls-to-the-wall ridiculous Voyager is.
I kept watching more episodes, and with each one became more taken aback by how crazy they got. Everytime I figured an episode had to be the weirdest one in the canon, the next one would top it.
In fact…they got so ridiculous, I had to start blogging about them.
