Sort of like a much, much more subtle version of "Turnabout Intruder"
23 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

One of the dumbest episodes of the original "Star Trek" series was its final show, "Turnabout Intruder". In it, a crazy woman trades bodies with Kirk against his will. The idea wasn't bad, but watching William Shatner overacting like a menopausal woman on crack was hilariously bad. Here in "Vis À Vis", however, they took a very similar plot but made it work much better--mostly due to much subtler acting.

When the show begins, Paris is acting a bit like an irresponsible jerk-face. However, when the ship encounters a seemingly nice alien (Dan Butler), Paris makes a new friend--or so he thinks. Soon, however, this alien steals Paris' body and creates all sorts of havoc.

If the alien sounds familiar, it's because Butler played Mad Dog on "Frasier" and you probably heard him there. Overall, well worth seeing though not exactly brilliant.
