I hated TNG when I watched the first episode. I had been hearing that it was coming for a couple of years and didn't see how they could do as well as TOS.
I couldn’t believe that first episode with the effeminate looking Captain. ARGH! And I had seen Frakes shortly before and did not like him one bit.
I continued to watch hoping it would get better. And it did! It is actually my favorite series with the The Inner Light
being my fav episode.
I have watched the show so much in re-runs that I am burnt. I probably wont watch it again until I get the DVDs mainly because of the continuous cutting of the show. AGT has some great stuff cut out and I just can't watch it anymore.
