I couldn't buy full seasons of any series, they're all just too damn inconsistent. I think the one exception is TNG season 3, which only has maybe like 2 or 3 episodes tops that aren't either very good or great, but I didn't buy that either because it would be weird to have just one season of a show that ran for seven.
I have the Time Travel Fan Collective, Q Fan Collective, and the wonderfully stacked Region 2/U.K. version of "The Jean Luc Picard Collection", which I think may be the most consistent Star Trek 'compilation' DVD set. It has such classics as "Darmok"
, "The Inner Light"
, and "Lessons" all in one place, plus the real fun 'Die Hard in space' of "Starship Mine"
and the even more fun "Captain's Holiday"
. It's a much stronger set of episodes than the ones on the North American version, and the only stinker is "Bloodlines"
The worst thing about these compilations is the repetition of episodes. I don't like having "Encounter at Far Point"
on two different sets, but it's pretty cool to have "Yesterday's Enterprise"
, "Trials and Tribble-ations"
, and "The City on the Edge of Forever"
all in one set, since for me those are probably the most emotionally resonant episodes of their respective series.
