  • Not one of the better episodes saved on by the character of Harry Mudd.

    I left this episode on my remastered box set till last as its not one of the best episodes in my opinion. I will say that Harry Mudd is a great character and I'm glad he returned for another episode. The women though great to look at are portrayed as pretty one dimensional characters with stereotypical womens needs! The end is quite silly in that the main lead female becomes beautiful after not taking the Venus drug. Though in defence of the writer it could be argued that she had taken so much of it over the years that it's still in her system so she temporarily becomes beautiful. I think the Venus drug could be a metaphor for alcohol in that members of the opposite sex can appear to be alluring until we meet them sober the next morning! Lol
