Yeah, DS9 went off the rails in the later years. I liked "That's a lot of yamuk sauce" Nog better. Though I must admit, Cadet Nog had his moments.



Now that's a religious doctrine I can get behind.

I truly hated the 'Ferenginar is a capitalist hellhole' meme that ran through STNG and DS9.

I doubly hated the 'Ferenginar gets reformed into a Social Welfare State' notion that developed in the last part of DS9.

I liked the retrospective an old acquaintance gave of the guy's work in a Twitter thread:

On the DVD extras, Armin Shimerman talked about how TNG made Ferengis into greedy jokey bad guys. He wanted to play Quark in order to redeem their image in spite of the fact that the DS9 writers were anti-capitalist that intended the character to be played in the TNG way.
It's a credit to his acting abilities that he succeeded, delivering early seasons sniveling and demeaning dialog with conviction and substance.

Robert Foster, 78.

I'm probably one of the handful of people who think "Jackie Brown" is one of Tarantino's best movies. Foster was great in it.

Bummer.

I agree about Jackie Brown but in my experience most Tarantino aficionados I've run into rank it pretty high. Popularity-wise I guess it's not as well known as his other stuff though.
