episode i ever saw on broadcast (this must have been 1997...) was 2x22 The Fall of Night
. i distinctly remember thinking, what is this show? hmmm, maybe i'll catch an ep, see what it's like. is it anything like star trek?
and then i saw it, and thought: what the fuck is this shit? turned it off, and didn't look back... for 4 and a half years!
didn't watch the show again until it had ended
