Intelligence reportStar trek: Voyager - Charting the Brady frontier.
You know the Doctor is gonna stuff up on family programming, the good part is that he stuffs up so badly (drama, humour, emotion - I got a bit teary, but I was pre-pre-menstrual at the time). The second story - with Tom Paris being lost in an alternative reality - is pretty unexciting, but it sets up a nice mirror to the Doctor's woes. And some really pretty effects.
This is one of those nicely intense human episodes, well worth seeing.
