^^ On re-watch, you're right, TNG season 1 was pretty weak. However, I was a sophomore in college during season 1, and there was a huge contingent of people in my dorm and on campus who watched it and completely enjoyed it. Male and female, jock, geek, sorority/frat kids the TV lounge was packed every Saturday night. At the time, it was great, but seeing it through the eyes of the rest of the series it does pale in comparison. I voted for Ent season 2. Just very very bland.
