I liked TNG year one better than TNG year two. In the first year they were being creative, inventive and trying things, figuring out what the show was going to be. The second year was just one pointless thud! after another, leavened by an entertaining scene here and there and one or two memorable episodes - and everyone blaming it on the writers' strike.
AKA the Rise And Fall Of Maurice Hurley.
TNG S2 had The Measure of a Man
and Q Who
, 2 of the finest episodes the show produced. S1 had a few good episodes but nothing of that standard.
