Re: My Greivences of Nutrek. What makes me a hater...
Not all of Lwaxana's episodes were meant to be funny. The one guest starring David Ogden Stiers (where his character faced mandatory euthanasia just for having reached a particular age) was definitely a serious episode.
Ditto for Dark Page,
the one where we find out about Troi's sister, Kestra. I always rate both of these episodes among TNG's best.
