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.

    Just wanted to say that I love your blog! I’ve been taking regular breaks from my thesis all day to read your entries. I’ve spilt my tea laughing at your comments on at least two occasions. Also, I share your loathing of Neelix.
    I look forward to your next entry πŸ˜‰
    Cheers from Australia.

    If you think Voyager is “the most ridiculous TV show in history” you should have written down what show you consider to be the best. As an avid watcher of Voyager, I should ask you if you actually understand any of the episodes for the message they convey… rather than focus on the nose-prosthetic of the week.

    When you say you watched it “with your mom” that kind of tells me you are rather young… So I’m a little scared to ask what show you consider to be… valid… in your universe. πŸ™‚

      Um so what exactly was the message of that episode where Janeway and Paris had lizard sex.
