Delta Redux: A Voyager Rewatch: Investigations

In the late 80s and early 90s there was this trend that I like to call “the camcorder episode” and almost every show did it regardless of genre. A camcorder episode was either entirely or partially shot from the point of view of a camera eyepiece as if you the viewer were filming the episode.

Delta Redux: A Voyager Rewatch: Lifesigns

Hooray, a Doctor-centric episode! So far in the series the Doctor has been – to my mind – the most dynamic and genuinely interesting character on the show.

Delta Redux: A Voyager Rewatch: Meld

After the ill-conceived cluster that was Threshold, Voyager serves up a truly great episode in Meld. In complete contrast to the previous episode Meld is well written, well-acted and tells a story with real consequences that will last throughout the series run.  That right there is a welcome change. As I’ve said multiple times season 2 has been a slog and I’ve found myself a bit unenthused at the prospect of yet another underwhelming episode
