Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch: “Someone to Watch Over Me”

It’s the inevitable riff on My Fair Lady. Or Pygmalion. Or My Favorite Year. Or Cyrano de Bergerac. It’s not a riff on She’s All That, only because that came out later that same year. Anyhow, it’s the unrequited love story and the awkward woman stumbles into romance story with the EMH and Seven of Nine. The Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch needs “Someone to Watch Over Me.”

An excerpt:

Plus, what a spectacular waste of Scott Thompson. Arguably the most talented member of the Kids in the Hall (which is not to speak ill of his troupe-mates, Thompson’s just that good), he’s utterly wasted in a role that any mediocre comic actor could have done decently with. In fact, we saw two mediocre comic actors do this exact same story in TNG’s “Liaisons.” If you’re going to repeat something from a TNG episode, you should at least make it a good one, not one of the drearier entries in that show’s incredibly dreary final season.
