"If they replaced this entire episode with 45 minutes of someone flipping off the audience, you'd never notice the difference."
"I see the movie has finally thrown up it's hands and said 'I Just Don't Know'"!
"Star Trek: Nemesis is the final nail in the proverbial space coffin."
This is the first point they should have ditched Jar Jar. This is also the point when the movie starts to officially fall apart. This is the moment when the Star Wars saga is now damaged totally beyond repair. The lapses in common sense and logic begin to compound on the movie and now it is broken. I could end this review here, but I'm really just getting started.
"You know that opening remark of Archer's- 'Starfleet didn't send us out here to make fools of ourselves'? I never figured that line was meant to establish the theme for the episode!"
"This was my hot button with this movie. Okay, this is when I said 'This film is SICK! This is a disgusting, sick, despicable movie!'"
Brad Jones: (watching the film) I could go on and on with this, but here's where I stop.
Jeff: (in the film, at church) What are the main themes of rock music? When I went through my own record collection, I was shocked! And what about the lifestyles of these popular artists? Some are admitted homosexuals!
Brad: Kid... go fuck yourself! Your decision is to not listen to rock music, fine. My decision is that I don't have to listen to any more of what you have to say, because as soon as you bring your homophobic beliefs into this one sided conversation, I am done with you!

"Is anyone surprised the show was cancelled after this episode?"
"I wrote the episode, or at least the teleplay... Out of a hundred and some episodes, you're gonna have some stinkers! Unfortunately, that was a royal, steaming stinker... It was not my shining moment."
Brannon Braga, regarding "Threshold," from the Star Trek: Voyager season 2 DVD.
"I'm at a loss for words. I mean... this has got to be the frigging DUMBEST twist i've ever seen in my life!"
"Everyone's got a bad one in them, and any artist that doesn't die young will eventually run out of steam at some point. They get old, they get complacent. No one can keep the fire burning forever. It happens. But until the end of my days, I don't think I will ever, ever see such a shocking drop in quality as this. [...] You remember in Space Jam where aliens secretly stole the talent from NBA stars and suddenly those players completely sucked? I can only assume something similar happened to Eminem in 2004 because I can't come up with a single better explanation for what happened to Slim. The song was called "Just Lose It", and Eminem just lost it! All of a sudden, Eminem had become everything his critics always said he was—witless, unfunny, obnoxious, and trying too hard to shock. And what was shocking about Eminem when he first came out is that he genuinely seemed as angry and violent as he came off. You could tell right from the beginning of "Just Lose It", though, that Eminem wasn't trying anymore. [...] It was the first Eminem song that was actually as bad as an Insane Clown Posse song. Eminem was supposed to be vicious, angry, dangerous. Not this! [...] After the unmitigated disaster that was the entire Encore album, Eminem wisely decided to sit out the rest of the decade. After a flop attempt at a comeback, Eminem finally regained some kind of form in 2010. He's still not as good as he was in his prime, but at least he's not this. Then again, the fact that this exists at all was probably evidence of intentional career sabotage."

"What more can be said about this shambles? It is categorically and undeniably the worst episode of Red Dwarf – rooted to the bottom of the list, and miles away from its nearest rival. If Derby County’s 2007-08 Premier League campaign was an episode of a science-fiction sit-com, this would be it. In a year where we’re supposed to be celebrating everything good about Red Dwarf, let’s just be thankful that when there’s an episode as bad as this, it sticks out so much that the decision to put it in last place was shared by sixty-seven people – by far the highest amount, by a factor of 39."
Ganymede and Titan's round-up of "Pete, Part 2" in the Silver Survey Poll. note
"I can say with no exaggeration that the sixteenth Goosebumps book ruined the series. There were bad novels before it, and there would be good ones after it, but nothing prior to One Day At HorrorLand exhibits what would steadily become a trademark of the series: complete and utter contempt for the audience."
