Re: Episode of the Week: 3x20 "Tin Man"
This is among the better TNG episodes. It was scripted by the authors of the Nebula-nominated short story "Tin Woodsman", on which the episode was based.
Agreed. In terms of episodes that had no real callback, this is one of my personal favorites. Tam's loneliness and isolation and Gomtuu's alien...ness, and the fact that it's one of Troi's very few good focus episodes makes it one I've always loved.
