Case 3.22: Real Life

Voyager boldly attempts a feat that has bedeviled humanity’s greatest writers for generations: to tell a tale that seamlessly blends the exploration of space-subspace interfold anomalies with the exploration of the modern family. Will they succeed, or will this episode plod on as a two-headed monster of half-baked plotlines? Will the Doctor learn the true meaning of living with a teenager who is kind of an a-hole? Or will Torres kill another member of his holographic brood for her own sadistic enjoyment? Is episode 3.22 “Real Life” good... or is it garbage?
