somemoron: PizzaJedi81: Ecobuckeye: Wow, TNG had some crappy effects.It was the late 80s, early 90s, what do you expect?On a television show budget, no less. Though I did like the facial peel and subsequent head 'asplode.
Really I'm Black: Body-snatching-alien conspiracy, Star Trek: The Next Generationbest. episode. evar. god i love conspiracies.im disappointed they didnt make this idea into a movie, let alone further tv episodes.one rumour i heard was that this race was originally what the writers conceived to be what eventually became the borg. if so, i guess it can be forgiven, the borg were pretty cool.
Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: Okay, 24, what the hell happened to Behrooz?And don't give us that "there's a deleted scene on the DVD" mumbo-jumbo.
PizzaJedi81: It was the late 80s, early 90s, what do you expect?On a television show budget, no less. Though I did like the facial peel and subsequent head 'asplode.Plus, it was an early season, before it got super-popular, so it's likely they only got one super-cool effect per season.
DamnYankees: UberDave: DamnYankees: Two of those to comment on:TNG - what's the follow up on? It ends with an ominous note, but no more or less than usual. No need for a followup, no unanswered questions.Right before the killed the "head" alien, it was sending out a signal. The episode ended with them wonder where the signal went...suggesting that there may be more aliens on the way. I think they dumped a follow up this for the better Borg story line.There may be more aliens on the way. Yes. May. There wasn't. Did you need a line in a future episode saying "well, thankfully nothing came of that"?
OhioKnight: The original conspiracy was a group of Starfleet officers who believed the Prime Directive was deeply immoral and were willing to commit their lives to its reversal through any means, including insurrection.
PizzaJedi81: Plus, it was an early season, before it got super-popular, so it's likely they only got one super-cool effect per season.
Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: Yeah, they were just a bit sloppy in the case of Behrooz. The resolution on the DVD deleted scene is interesting, but if it didn't happen on the small screen, it didn't happen.
Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: And they never gave us any closure about what happened to John Keeler, either. They *kinda* gave us closure on what happened to Wayne Palmer with a newspaper prop in 24: Redemption. In both of these cases, though, the folks behind the show were a mite sloppy.I'd also like to believe that Season 6 never happened, but that's something else about the sloppiness altogether.

PIP_the_TROLL: Having a directional intelligence ruins it for you somehow?
theorellior: Like the giant black paint monster.
puckrock2000: Mad About You - whatever happened to Selby?[sharetv.org image 225x169]He suddenly morphed into Cousin Ira:[www.seriessub.com image 300x450]And everyone forgets the most notorious dropped subplot from ST:TOS:What the hell happened to Lt. Dave Bailey?[trekmovie.com image 612x454]
Tatsuma: Why was Darma still making food drops?
Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: *snert*I could live with that!
Aladriel: Because Desmond was technically working for Dharma while entering in the code in the Swan Station. The Lost crew kept entering in the code upon his leaving and so Dharma had no reason to think anything had gone wrong. So, they kept sending food.
Tatsuma: Aladriel: Because Desmond was technically working for Dharma while entering in the code in the Swan Station. The Lost crew kept entering in the code upon his leaving and so Dharma had no reason to think anything had gone wrong. So, they kept sending food.And when did we learn that exactly?
DamnYankees: You really need everything spelled out for you, don't you.
Tatsuma: The whole Darma project had been wiped out for what, nearly 40 years? It was in the early 70s, right?
Tatsuma: The whole Darma project had been wiped out for what, nearly 40 years? It was in the early 70s, right?So we're supposed to believe that for 40 years, even after the Island went completely silent (as it certainly wasn't silent and communicated quite frequently with the outside world) except for the push of a button, the people outside of the Island just shrugged their shoulders and figured 'Welp, let's just keep on sending food all the time anyway'That makes no sense at all.
DamnYankees: Did you even watch the show? The Purge took place in the nineties, something like ten years before the show started.
mjbok: The purge took place in 1992, twelve years before the crash of 815.
Tatsuma: mjbok: The purge took place in 1992, twelve years before the crash of 815.40, 20, 12 years is irrelevant.The fact that they kept on sending food for 12 years while the station went completely dark is retarded.
DamnYankees: The station never went dark.
Tatsuma: And when did we learn that exactly?
Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: Mugato: Heh. That's how I feel about Christopher Lee in LOTR.I'm not a Tolkien fanboy, mind you, but I'm still pissed about that because Christopher Lee deserved better than to make way for 30 minutes of battle scenes and 20 minutes of Liv Tyler staring into the camera.Behrooooz! Don't remember. I didn't start watching 24 until the 4th season so I watched 3 seasons on DVD in like a week and so they sort of run together. I do remember that his mom killed his cutie girlfriend.Ahhh, gotcha.Well, in the show, Marwan's henchmen find Behrooz's tracker and take him for "reeducation."That's the last that we "officially" see of him.Tatsuma: What on earth are you talking about? 24 ended with Jack riding in the sunset at the end of Season 5 after saving the country, thus earning well deserved rest for the decades to come.*snert*I could live with that!
TheManofPA: I like to think the last season was a hallucination brought on by the season 8 surgery side effects. In reality, Jack gets the happy ending he deserves.....by getting happy endings from Rack Bauer.
DamnYankees: The station never went dark. What are you talking about.
NeoCortex42: Stile4aly: I think the Shanti virus and Peter's girlfriend being stuck in the future were bigger dropped plots than the villains issue. The writers's strike really screwed Heroes over.FTFYAfter the first season, the show was heading downhill regardless of the strike. The strike didn't help, but the subsequent season showed that even without the strike the show was a lost cause. It had so much potential, but the writing was atrocious. I'm pretty sure most episode writers hadn't actually watched the show before based on how much character motivations and powers changes throughout each season.
eddievercetti: Heroes - Hyping up the whole villains event the whole summer...only to kill them off three episodes in. Shocker the writers strike farked it up or so they say.Fringe - I forgot about the whole pattern thing. Maybe it was for the best though.
mjbok: DamnYankees: The station never went dark. What are you talking about.The fact that food drops were still being done after the destruction of the Flame is stupid.//The New Man in Charge is either canon or not, you can't pick and choose.
whizbangthedirtfarmer: I can tell you which subplots I'd hope they would drop--the "romance" and "marriage" of LaGuerta and Batista. I'm halfway through season five, and I can't stand either one of them anymore. We're in love; no we're not! Hey, look at all of this money she's keeping from me! That's it! I'm divorcing you!
