Just Read "Good Companions"

Please pardon me if this subject has been talked to death. I'm a newbie, so I beg your indulgence. I just had to get it off my chest.

Today, the mail brought me my used copy of More Short Trips. I ordered it specifically for the short story "Good Companions". Tegan's my favorite old school companion. So waving this whacked out future tale in front of me was like waving a red flag in front of a particularly stubborn bull. I'd heard about it, and wanted to see how much of a trainwreck it truly was.

Below the cut are my thoughts. (Also mentioned in my LJ; so if you get this twice, again apologies)

Thoughts? Thanks for letting me vent.
