Odo: So, what do you think of the O'Briens' plan to name their baby 'Sean'?
Captain Sisko: I kind of like it; 'Sean' - has a nice ring to it.
Odo: Except that in Bajoran, 'shawn' means 'swamp'.
Captain Sisko: The O'Briens know that?
Odo: I doubt it.
Captain Sisko: Someone should tell them.

Risa unrising
16 October 2014 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I'm currently watching DS9 for the first time.

I'm always looking forward to episodes involving Risa, the 'pleasure planet' of the Federation. So when Dax, Worf, Bashir, Leeta and Quark all go there together in this episode I was looking forward to a 'light' episode with lots of comedy and 'pleasure'-like moments, just like an episode of good old 'Fantasy Island' that I enjoyed very much when I was a kid, or when Picard goes to Risa in the TNG episode where he meets the archaeologist lady.

It could have been a fun episode to watch to take a break from the darkness in DS9 at this time.

It turned out that this episode was very disappointing. It was not fun to watch at all. Some comedy mainly by Quark, the rest was just depressing and unconvincing.

Michael Dorn was given a role and lines that were ridiculously childish and negative even for him, and it affected his performance, and this seemed to reflect onto the others as well. Everyone performed pretty bad compared to other episodes, and the chemistry between them was all gone.

The villain was like something from the 1930's, and the writing was overall very bad.

It all felt very childish.

My least favorite episode of DS9 so far, sorry.
