Or, “50 Shades of Riker.” A clip show? This series has not earned a clip show.
Riker gets Space VD – or Space Worms, or Space Flu, or whatever – and the only way to save his life is to force the audience to relive painful scenes from previous episodes. Being Riker, these are mostly boner scenes. This makes the Space VD go zoom, so Pulaski forces him to have sad scenes instead. When this isn’t enough, they move on to scenes of violence that end with Riker and his droogs out for a night of ultra — oh, sorry, I changed the channel.
This is simply a terrible hour of television. It’s contrived and pointless and may be the worst season finale I’ve ever seen of anything.
