S02.E03: Home

I was going to say, fun little episode, great seeing Robert Picardo and Phlox from Enterprise, nice special effects of Alara's home world.  But then...that ending.  What the hell?  Alara is one of my favorite characters on the show!  I'm totally bummed.  This show will miss her.

Seth did the western movie where people were dying in the background left and right for all the silliest things, so it would be funny to see every few episodes that they all die from weird freak accidents. 

Not to mention regularly killing off security personnel is about the Trekkiest thing they could do.

Why do people insist on making this more of a comedy than Seth ever intended it to be?  So he decided to do something different by making this show a sci-fi drama/parody hybrid. I personally think it's great that he took such a risk by taking an unorthodox approach to the show -- for me, it's paying off big time. If I wanted to watch "Family Guy," I'd watch "Family Guy."

Well, there are a million ways to die in the Old West.

My big question:  why didn't they send Isaac to the high-gravity planet?  (Apart from the Chekov's phaser from the gravity suit & timer.)

I like that the show uses tropes, but I wondered about that.

Good luck, Ms. Sage.  I look forward to seeing your other work.

Perhaps on Alara's home planet Isaac would flatten like a tin can run through a trash compactor?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that scene of Gordon throwing an aluminum bottle out of the gravity field to watch it flatten like a pancake was also a "this would happen to Isaac" demonstration.
