Deja Q is probably the best comedy Trek ever did. I've almost ruined it for myself now just from watching it so many times. Its hard to remember how utterly hilarious it was the first 20 or so times I watched it.
I agree. This sort of story is one of the strengths of Q's character on TNG. He could be ominous and threatening, but humorously annoying in other instances. The writers were able to show both sides of the coin in different eps.
Disagree about the last part of your statement. The writers certainly wrote several good stories with him but they had some crappy ones too like "Qpid" and "True Q". Q worked so well because of John de Lancie's acting. With a lesser actor in the role the character would have been much less interesting.
