Lets remember how bad the first two seasons of TNG were when Gene was the showrunner, he was still doing the show like it was stuck in the 60s!
Except with a lot less censorship.

And actually Roddenberry was only the showrunner in season 1. It was Maurice Hurley in season 2.
Hurley was the sole showrunner for season 2? Really? You learn something new everyday!
That TNG 'continuing mission' book is not without a few flaws, but it is pretty frank about a lot of what was going on & going wrong behind the scenes in early TNG. Worth a read, to be sure, and that's coming from somebody who wasn't even much of a fan of the show.
