Allemaraine....Third Shap

This is the episode that stopped me from watching DS9 in 1993. I was already a little dissappointed up until then, but after sweating through.... "Thialo... aga... aga... allamaraine...
nolo... Ferengi nolo... thialo..."

I think that episode is seriously over-hated. It could have been a great episode if they'd just thought of better obstacles than they did.

Come on, trapped in a board game? That's an awesome premise. Maybe a better premise for TNG or Voyager than DS9.

I always kinda liked the episode.

OP be damned, this is now the thread for people who kinda like Move Along Home. :)

Hi, I'm Tosk. And I liked Move Along Home.

It's a better episode than "Q-Less." :lol:

Its still better that 90% of the crap they spewed out in series 1 and 2 of TNG lol

Anyway If wishses were horses is a billion times worse.

I wouldn't even say 'If Wishes Were Horses' is that bad. There is a certain bizarre did-David-Lynch-direct-this quality but it's not "bad".

Now 'The Passenger'.....that one was painful to watch.

What is generally considered to be the "Masks" or "Spock's Brain" of DS9? This one? Let He Who Is Without Sin? Profit and Lace?

"Let He Who Is Without Sin" at least has the merit of being set on Risa, with all the hints of hedonism and titillation that implies. I watch it with the sound off and the occasional fast-forward.

I didn't think "Move Along Home" was bad. It had some good Quark moments, and developed his character nicely. The bizarre nature of the episode highlights the alien-ness of the Wadi. Too few aliens in Trek are made truly weird.

Probably 'The Muse' but I wouldn't discount 'Second Sight' either.

Captive Pursuit was/is a bright spot in a hapless first season.

"Piece....of....cake.....O....Brien...."

Photon, did you end up watching the rest of the series? I know you said you stopped in 1993, but did you pick it back up later? Just curious.

Since we're sharing, I stopped watching after "The Circle" and with the exception of happening to catch (and enjoy) the Gabriel Bell arc, I didn't touch DS9 again until Worf's arrival. I know, I got sucked in.

Re: Allemaraine....Third Shap
 
I like If Wishes Were Horses too.

I thought Profit and Lace was considered DS9's worst episode. And The Muse is terrible too.

Me too. I don't get the hate for Move Along Home.
