That was my reaction to TNG after seeing episodes from the first few seasons. What happened to "boldly go"? The show was about 24th century couch potatoes. The episode where the crew debate the moral ramifications of "shutting off" a fictional character was groan-inducing. (Moral? No, those are just ads. "Don't touch that dial!")
