I did not realize I needed a Dixon Hill grainy B&W noir until now,

I cannot say enough great stuff about that episode (arc) but to this day my absolutely favorite part is Dr. Crusher struggling to eat the chewing gum because she didn't know about gum. :lol:

I've always thought that this kind of plot device ("I have no idea what this is so I'm doing it all wrong", like the chewing gum or a car or whatever) was really lame. Just like "This guy has pointy ears / some skin condition, he must be from outer space and I'm going to faint". Not really believable.

:shrug: I didn't find it unbelievable at all. Sometime in the future, gum is no longer a thing. It could happen.

A woman hands Dr. Beverly what she assumes is a mint or a candy or something. She starts eating it, realizes she's in trouble, but because she's a nice, polite lady, and the nice, polite lady who gave it to her is still right in front of her, she does her best to eat it with good manners and a smile, but she's obviously struggling to get it down. McFadden sells the shit out of it. As a nice, polite lady (sometimes) myself, it totally resonates. The shit we put ourselves through not to offend others.

It wasn't a lady who gave it to her. It was the unpleasant police officer who kept ogling her.

I've watched every TNG episode several times.

:haha:

Oh, derp! I thought it was Dixon's secretary. Still, Dr. Crusher is a nice, polite lady with manners so I stand by my argument. :hmph:

If done well, like a sudden "shit this wasn't what I expected" moment I find it amusing. If it's say, being completely dumbfounded over the whole concept of a truck and needing your tricorder to identify literal shit, then it's stupid. It makes sense the future works different but not that our characters are morons.

It's related to procrastination and the fact that it's probably my favorite show of all time. I'm still waiting for a mind eraser so I can watch them again.
