Is it worth it to see the other half of season one?

Okay, so I remember really loving TNG when I watched it, but that was a long time ago and only late in the series. I tried to watch season one, and I got halfway through and stopped.

So, my question is this: Is it worth it to watch the rest of season one? If not, is there a place you'd say to start watching from because I know I liked it in the latter seasons???

I'm really just trying to figure out where I should pick this series back up.

Thanks.

Yes. There's some good episodes at the back of Season one. Conspiracy, The Neutral Zone...

Yeah, if you like TNG, then you might have missed some you'd enjoy, & why wouldn't you finish watching the remainder just for completion? I'll assume you made it through the first 12. The ones you might like among the last 12 are

11001001
Home Soil
Heart Of Glory
Arsenal Of Freedom
Conspiracy
The Neutral Zone

Re: Is it worth it to see the other half of season one?

yes. The second half is much better than the first, and if you already made it through stuff like "naked now" and "code of honor" why would you stop just as things were getting better?

episodes like "110011001" "conspiracy" and "heart of glory" aren't just good season 1 episodes, they're among the best TNG episodes period.

Definitely. I think all of TNG is worth seeing once.

Since the episodes in the second half of the season show much improvement I'd stick with it.

Re: Is it worth it to see the other half of season one?

Thank you so much, everyone. I'll check out the rest of the season then. Someone mentioned "Code of Honor," which was really bad to me, and I wondered if I was only signing up for more of that. I'm glad to hear that I'm not.

THANKS

if the goal is saving brain cells, skipping "Genesis" might be better advice. (I don't actually advocate skipping any episodes, because taste is subjective and you won't know what you missed).

Just to offer a somewhat contrarian viewpoint: I agree with Mojochi's list, in that those are pretty much the best season 1 eps (and would add "Symbiosis"), and they ARE better than the likes of "Code of Honor" or "Justice". But the best of season 1 pales in comparison to the best of season 3-7; I'd say those eps top out at like 6.5 or maybe 7 out of 10. And depending on where exactly you stopped watching, you may still have some serious clunkers ahead, as well.

IMO, "Genesis" is better than "Sub Rosa" (or season 6's "Man of the People"), though only by virtue of being slightly more watchable ("Genesis" is still dumber than a bag of rocks, but has some fun/cool moments; the other two don't even have that). I agree, though, that every ep is worth seeing once, if only to form your own opinion of it.

Thank you, everyone. I will keep Sub Rosa and Genesis in mind for the clunkers.

Re: Is it worth it to see the other half of season one?

Actually, I don't mind Genesis. It's got a cool shot of the Enterprise adrift, it's got big scary spider, it's got Riker as a caveman, and Worf spraying venom which scared the hell out of my gf when she saw it.

Not a great episode, but certainly not one of the dregs.

Yea, Season 1 is not bad, it has some bad ones, but it's not bad at all.

Yes. The second half is actually more entertaining than the earlier episodes + no Tasha Yar.

I recently bought the whole DVD box so I've been having a TNG marathon the latest weeks during the nights and I found the first season to be good. Not great as the rest of the series, but good. Last time I found them tedious although still very interesting. Of course, this is the second time I have a full TNG marathon but I've seen most of those episodes several times on TV although the episodes I've managed to see the most times on TV were from Season 5 to 7.
