I think Voyager gets a bad rap. It is easily my favorite Star Trek series, with DS9 a close 2nd. Most people blame Seven of Nine. Sure, she was a ratings grab but she was a fantastic character even beyond the skin tight suits and amazing tits. I will always say that Janeway is the best captain. :mrgreen:

I know I'm in the minority though. I also didn't think that Enterprise was the travesty that most make it out to be. Not the best but still fairly solid.

Voyager stinks because the pinnacle of human evolution as portrayed in the show is getting turned into giant slug-like creatures.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

In the Matrix, Neo finally confronts the Architect and is basically given the choice of door 1: save Trinity, door 2: save humanity. It always seemed like a false choice to me that made him become compliant to the rules of the construct. Why not just kill the Architect? Now that would've been a real choice.

Saving humanity would naturally include saving Trinity - assuming that Trinity is, in fact, a member of the human race.

I don't think "saving humanity" implies saving Trinity any more than "saving electricity" by turning off a light when you out of a room implies saving every watt of electricity on the planet.

Specific humans may die in the effort to save humanity as a whole.

Matrix? The basic premise is a big giant plothole where you can fly through with the Death Star. Humans aren´t energy generators. Would have been better if the machinesactually used the power needed to till the field for the nutrients needed that humans convert into energy in an inefficient wa for someting sensible.

nuclear power wouldbe a more sensible way.

And let´s not talk about the stupid walker design of the Zion defenders or keeping the plugged guys in complete suspended animation, actually reducing energy needs, instead of runnung mind theatre.

Wash: Psychic, though? That sounds like something out of science-fiction.

From what I've heard the original concept was that the humans' brains were used for processing power, but it was changed to the "battery" idea later.

Oh would somehow make a bit more sense. At least explains, why they don´t produce lobotomized clones.

I was being mildly facetious. The entire premise of the Matrix (yes, the whole trilogy) is just one gigantic plot hole that the writers and director tried to fill with a bunch of blended cliches and quasi-religious symbolism.

Note that the topic of this thread is "Plotholes you noticed in your favorite movies", not "Complaining about movies that you don't like".

Never said I didn't like the Matrix, just that the entire trilogy is a giant plothole.

Wait.... what? Why? We have one of the most easy to understand currency systems in the history of currency. You want to talk confusing? Go deal with pre-decimal system British Pounds, Or Colonial Spanish Silver, or *shudders* Pre-WWII Currency systems found in the far east.

You people have weird fucking names for your small coins though. Over in Aus we just say 10c or 5c or 50c etc. The only one of your coins I know is a quarter and that's because I'm good at guessing, yo.

A quarter is another way of saying one-fourth. One-fourth of a dollar is $0.25. A penny is a $0.01 piece. The only other two you need to remember are nickels are $0.05 and dimes are $0.10. The word dime originates from disme, which means tenth (or 1/10th of a dollar).
