I agree. This could have been because the stakes are lower with an individual television story than with a feature film, so there were fewer interested parties pulling the project apart.
You did forget quite a few two-parters, though. Was it because you only wanted compare somewhat-analogous stories? I'd like to know what you thought of Time's Arrow, Gambit, Chain of Command and Descent? I can't remember any other two-parters.
Yeah, I was going for the somewhat similar stories or themes.
Only Chain of Command is up there with the two parters I mention in my first post.
Also Encounter at Farpoint
was a better intro to the new crew of the Enterprise D than Generations
