I am working my way through all of TNG on DVD (after watching TOS) and I know some complain that the first two seasons are not the best. But I have found that they really are not that bad and do not deserve the bad rap they often get. I have found many episodes that I really enjoy.
I agree. Season 1 did get a bit cheesy sometimes but they still were trying to gather what TNG will be.
Season 2 is where they started to go off the charts.
