558. [DS9] Let He Who is Without Sin...
SCORE: (1/5 stars)
I can’t believe I’m saying this about any piece of televised fiction ever, but I think this episode would have been better with a laugh track. Worf and Dax are having arguments in their relationship (mostly about him being overly jealous and controlling) so the obvious thing to do is take Mr. Sunshine on a trip to Risa. And let’s have Bashir, Leeta and Quark tag along too, because otherwise we’d have to write more scenes to take place on DS9!
Worf walks around the place with a bat'leth up his ass because Jadzia dares to talk with people she used to date, including the Risian responsible for Curzon’s death by snoo-snoo. (The references to jamaharon get a little overdone by the end of the episode, but for a legend like Curzon, what better way to go?) When Worf and Jadzia catch Leeta and Bashir making time with the locals instead of each other, Worf is highly incensed at their disrespect for each other, while Jadzia tells him to mind his own effin’ business. Bashir and Leeta are more than happy to explain that they’re going through the Bajoran break-up ritual which involves lots of sex with each other and other people. Worf’s all “But muh Klingon honor applies to non-Klingon cultures!” and Jadzia’s all “oh Christ I’m stuck dating this guy until they kill me off.”
A group of Tea Party Patriots show up to tell everyone that they’re going to hell and they need to stop endulging in such hedonistic pleasures because any sign of weakness means the Al Qaeda will win. Worf starts listening to them and saying “Gosh, Jadzia, Mike Huckabee has some good points!” He comes up with an idea to piss everyone off enough to leave Risa. Since the planet is weather-controlled, he’ll just hack into the weather system and disable it, causing a rainy vacation for all. I keep waiting for Jadzia to go “omg dude you can’t just go creating jobs for meteorologists, we’re donezo” but it never happens.
