I liked this episode. It was one of the first to deal with backstories of the characters. First and foremost is Riker's daddy issues. Meh. The "resolution" was way too brief and superficial. But seeing Worf feeling the outcast added more, and was the stepping stone to Moore's contributions. I really liked Pulaski in this one. She connects with Worf, and the backstory with Riker's dad was handled well.
That Judo-meets-American Gladiators game was hilariously cheesy.
