The introduction of the character was very disturbing - wrongthink is bad! Lustful thoughts? You're not pretty enough to have lustfull thoughts! Privacy? What's that?

One thing I never understood is why Troi never felt his attraction toward her. I know it's just the writers ignoring her "empathic" abilities for the sake of the story, but it's still annoying.
Far from the only time that Deanna's abilities had a blind spot or otherwise let her down.
