A great way to spend 55 minutes

After dinner tonight, I sat down with my fiance and daughter to watch some netflix... and my fiance inexplicably wanted to watch Deep Space Nine! Very strange. She has seen all of 1.4 episodes of DS9 in her life, but who am I to argue?

She didn't want to watch the first episode because she felt that she has a good grasp on the characters and situation (having previously seen "Trials and Tribble-ations" and part of "The Circle"[!]) so I had to just pick an episode at random.

I went with "Way of the Warrior". It is a fun episode and one of my all-time faves. It has some humor, some action, some drama... and Worf! Both my fiance and my daughter are familiar with Worf from TNG. We even have a Worf ornament for our Christmas tree. All I could do was put the episode on and hope that Worf could introduce my ladies to the wonders of DS9!

I spent my teen years sitting up alone to watch DS9 every Sunday morning from 12:35 a.m. until 1:35 a. m., so it was really strange for me to have someone to watch DS9 with for the first time. Strange, but wonderful! What a marvelous time! I will always remember it. It lasted exactly 55 minutes. And then I had to turn it off. They couldn't take it anymore. They both found if incredibly boring.

They decided to watch Double, Double (starring the freaking Olsen Twins) instead. It's vile. I watched it with them for about 55 minutes before wandering in here to the computer room.

WOTW seemed like a good pick at the time, but I guess I should have chosen a different episode. Maybe something shorter and funnier? Like a Ferengi episode? I don't know.

Anyway, it was great to be able to share DS9 with someone for once... even if it was short lived.
