Midnight in Paris
10 August 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Excuse my pun. This episode has an interesting premise. Paris is sent to a planet to get serious help from an esteemed scientist. Of course, he has a beautiful wife and it's not long before Tom is putting the make on her (or vice versa). Before long, he is found guilty of killing the woman't husband and his brain is used to forever throw his actions in his face. Of course, unless Paris is leaving the series, we know that somehow someone (this time Tuvok) will find him innocent. Of course, at no time does anyone kick his butt for his totally inappropriate actions. He did mess around with the wife and actually sought her out. He is a loose cannon and not very reliable at all. He should have spent considerable time in the brig. Had they not been in desperate straits, he probably should have been removed of duty once again.
