      I had seen the Family Guy episode that was on about a dozen times so I ended up flipping channels yesterday afternoon looking for something else to watch. After a minute or so, I came across one of my favorite Star Trek the Next Generation episodes; Elementary, Dear Data.

      Basically, this episode has Data pretending to be Sherlock Holmes (one of my favorite literary


      characters).

      Because he has complete knowledge of all the Sherlock Holmes stories, LaForge decides to have the holodeck create an original mystery with a villain that Data will have problems beating (I won’t tell you who the villain was, but I will say he is almost as famous as Sherlock Holmes himself).

      Unfortunately, this backfires and they end up with a villain that is ...


      • super intelligent and manages to take over control of the Enterprise.

        I’m not a huge fan of the ending; mostly because the villain seems so evil at first but, once you get to know him, you realize he isn’t.

        He’s just an artificial being that is intelligent enough to be aware of his existence and, as a result, does not want to simply be

        erased once the game is over with.

        That part itself wasn’t too bad because it did raise the question of when something can be considered as a living being.

        But, it means there really is very little action in the episode; especially toward the end.

        This is an OK episode that is definitely entertaining.

        I just wish they could have thought of a better way to end it.
