Ratings are based on a four star system.
One star means that the commercials are more entertaining than the program.
Two stars watch if you have nothing better to do.
Three stars is good solid entertainment.
Four stars means you never dreamed television could be this good.

Both The X-Files and Star Trek: Voyager, the two best SF shows on television, finish up their current seasons in May.

The first season of The X-Files is now available complete on DVD, with unaired footage and other extras. I have mixed feelings about this. The six episode VHS boxed set of Season One seemed to have all of the first rate episodes from that season. Do we really need the lesser efforts preserved in a deluxe format? Well, it's there for those who want it, and that's a good thing.

The X-Files
May 7
"Fight Club" by Chris Carter

May 14
"Je Housaite" by Vince Gilligan

May 21
"Requiem" by Chris Carter (season finale)

Three episodes by top writers, all must-see entertainment.

Star Trek: Voyager
Apr 26
     They slipped in an unannounced new episode at the end of April. I didn't see it, and I have no info about it.

May 3
     The long awaited return of Kes.

May 10
"Life Line" by John Bruno, Robert Picardo, and Joe Menosky
     Voyager catches The X-Files habit of having actors write. Features Deanna Troi and Reg Barclay.

May 17
"The Haunting of Deck Twelve", by Bryan Fuller, Kenneth Biller, and Michael Sussman

May 24
"Unimatrix Zero" by Brannon Braga and Joe Menosky
     The season finale, featuring the Borg.

And that's it for May. See you in mid-May with my take on Frequency and in June with season episode guides for Voyager and The X-Files.
