->''"The story is facile at best. The basic plot and themes are recycled from Isaac Asimov’s ''Literature/IRobot'', which was a similar series of philosophical explorations of machine intelligence dressed up in plots, although Asimov favored detective plots as opposed to [[{{Infodump}} paragraph-long lists of sci-fi weapons]] and descriptions of space combat. Posthumanity are just the all-conquering cyborgs in the mould of ''Series/DoctorWho''[=’=]s Cybermen and ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration''[=’=]s Borg, with “Integration” un-subtly standing in for “assimilation” or “upgrading.” The themes are similarly old hat -- several paragraphs are spent discussing how the human ships ''“took more risks than we did, even though their fragility is orders of magnitude greater than ours. They utilized tactics that did not appear to have a rational thought behind them, and yet, when the consequences are taken into consideration, their approach worked nearly as well as our eminently logical battle plan,”'' which reads like the bad rip-off of [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Kirk/Spock]] arguments that it is."''

In five minutes alone he sexually assaults a woman on a public beach in broad daylight, all the while screeching the N word at anyone within earshot, then goes back to his patrol vehicle where he guzzles from a gallon size bottle of vodka...Someone like [[Film/GranTorino Clint Eastwood in his 80’s]] can still say'' 'You ever meet someone you know you just shouldn’t have fucked with *spit * That’s me','' and people would still be nervous.

Damiano'', in the same way settlers 'short-changed' Native Americans for the island of Manhattan. [[InsultToRocks But he paid less]]. He stole the entire comic, scene for scene, line for line, word for goddamn word. It is impossible to overstate how directly he ripped it off. I've used photocopiers that make less direct reproductions. When you read the title "''[=HowardCantour.com=]''," you've already experienced most of Shia's contribution to the project. The only other alterations were things like changing the bagels the characters eat into cookies. That's the level of cinematic insight Shia brings to a creative project: liking cookies."''

->''"What is ''this''? After three superb episodes that made me believe that maybe…'''maybe''' ''Voyager'' would crack on and tell some grand stories in it's last two years, we hit the ground with a bang so hard its enough to give you whiplash. Ronald D. Moore has left the building and we’re back into Brannon Braga high concept territory. Let joy be uncontained. This is ''Voyager''[=’=]s take on Stephen King’s ''{{Literature/Christine}}'' except instead of a Plymouth Fury we are dealing with [[RecycledInSPACE a psychotic space craft]] that attempts to seduce Tom Paris to the dark side. How did they think any good could come of this? Its so predictable I wouldn’t even call it ''Trek'' by numbers; it's even more nursery school than that, with the Daffy Duck ''Voyager'' crew failing to pick up on any of the signs that Tom has been influenced by Alice despite the fact that this kind of possession [[AesopAmnesia happens twice a year on this ship]]... This could have worked had they taken the piss out of the hokey concept and laughed along with its absurd plot turns, but in true ''Voyager'' fashion it is all told with deadly solemnity which adds [[{{Narm}} a whole new level of embarrassment]]."''

->'''Chris''': I think there’s only one way to say it: ''Smallville'' has done an episode that rips off ''Film/TheMatrix'', and it is currently the year 2011.\\
'''David''': And Chris, what’s truly amazing about this episode is that it rips off ''The Matrix'' — itself a gigantic rip-off of Grant Morrison’s ''[[TheInvisibles Invisibles]]''. If they just skipped the middlemen and ripped off Morrison instead, I’m pretty sure [[DickDastardlyStopsToCheat I’d be singing this episode’s praises.]]

I've constantly bemoaned the tendency of ''Smallville'' to occasionally commit open plagiarism. We've now moved beyond the occasional and into the realms of dependency. This is the last season of a show that has 75 plus years of story to mine; I'm really starting to get chuffed at the fact that I'm being subjected to ''Readers Digest'' versions of movies that [[SmallReferencePools are no longer or never were culturally relevant]].
