  • Another "Data with kids" storyline.

    After "Pen Pal" and "The Offspring", the writers realized they had a good thing going with the "Data + child" formula. Data's character was a great match in this context because he himself was so childlike. And yeah, Data and the kid do click here. The kid actor himself does a pretty good job.

    That said, blah. Is this really worth dedicating 45 minutes of your life to watching this? I was thinking - these mediocre episodes in season 5 involved lots of talking by Counselor Troi. A pattern?

    "The Offspring" was a much better episode.
