Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Okay, maybe not. But far too long, and badly written and filmed. And these jerky characters miscommunicated and peeved their neighbors so systematically that Connie Willis must have cowritten the episode.

I hereby wash my hands of West Wing loyalty. Enterprise was okay, so I'll still watch TV on Wednesday nights, and I may watch West Wing to while away the hour between Enterprise and the first two minutes of Law and Order (where two extras find the body). But don't count on it.
