I'd rather dig out a wisdom tooth with a rusty spoon than watch The Inner Light again. And I'm not sure it's an alternate reality episode, more like a Picard at the movies one.
Geez, what's with the hate?
TIL isn't an episode where Picard watches a movie for 40 minutes.
It is absolutely all it is, with a side order of Riker acting like a complete idiot.
The episode puts me to sleep. I'd rather watch Code of Honor
and Angel One
back-to-back on a constant loop for eternity than be forced to sit through The Inner Light
