Glad there are other Muldaur/Pulaski fans. I find McFadden (infact most of TNG) dull.
I think TNG is an excellent show for Seasons 3-5 but I'd agree McFadden's performance and character was dull. Compared to McCoy and Bashir, Crusher was a blank slate. There is no character there at all.
Pulaski was a big improvement.
I couldn't agree more. Dr. Crusher had two notes 1.) Ask Picard a question to get out some exposition and internal feelings, occasionally flirt with him and 2.) Heal the sick no matter where in the timeline, the Prime Directive, or anywhere else they may be. Dull and boring.
