You are Gollum! Oooh. Slimy. You are totally
devoted to the Ring, to the point where it has
actually driven you schizo. Though not really a
looker, you are hugely cunning and always
scheming to get what you want. Very easily
corrupted, but at least you do get the Ring in
the end which is more than Sauron can say! You
are our favourite baddie of them all. Be proud!
Which Lord of the Rings baddie are you? (FINISHED WITH PICS!)

Because my cartoons are into repeats, again only one show to cover here. ( I see that Alias is a repeat tonight by the way so this pattern will probably last awhile. )
Deuce apparently believes, if I understood him correctly, that this week's episode of Enterprise was the best of the series. Personally, I don't think it was even the best of the season. ("Twilight" comes immediately to mind.) Don't get me wrong though. This episode was very very good. Shran is a very interesting character and definitely does not appear enough in this series. (Oddly, he appears as often as Q did on TNG yet I still say this.) Even his antennae convey emotion well. Talas was an interesting glimpse at a female Andorian. (I don't recall ever seeing one before.) Deuce said she "was hot." I personally am not into blue-skinned women with antennae but she was not totally hideous and her scenes with Malcolm clearly had sparks flying. Archer's relations with Shran and Malcolm's interaction with Talas finally show in this series a glimpse at how it's possible Humans, Vulcans and Andorians all work together to found the Federation. (I guess we need more Tellerite episodes.) One downside to this episode, and this was pointed out in a another review I read, the scene with Shran and his superior should have been taken out. It would have been better to find out about the Andorians duplicity when Archer did and I can't be the only one watching this episode expecting the Andorians to do something like that anyway.
The aforementioned review wondered why Jeffrey Combs has never been part of a regular cast. At first, I was thinking that you might as well add the late Mark Lenard (who was up for the role of Spock) Mark Alaimo, Suzie Plakson, James Sloyan and J. G. Hertzler to that list since they all have appeared in Trek as numerous characters.
I then thought that with some exceptions, such as when Mark Lenard played the Klingon commander destroyed by V'Ger, you always knew it was them. Not so with Jeffrey Combs. It was a long time before I figured out he was playing both Weyoun and Brunt and you maybe didn't know that, in addition to Shran whom he plays a bit different from the other two characters, he was one of the Ferengi who encountered Enterprise. Yes, I agree. Why hasn't he ever been part of a regular cast?
