I found myself yawning
20 November 2017 | by hmoikaSee all my reviews

Okay episode only.

I enjoyed it well enough, but just think Jonathan Frakes was a better director for the series than as an actor. I found myself yawning about midway through the episode.

Somehow, this would have worked better if it had been a 30-minute episode. It just felt to be padded a bit too much.
