Re: How often do you watch DS9?

In my area, and with the service and channels I get, there is a complete Star Trek black-out on TV nowadays.

No Treks at all, not even on SY-FY, which I thought was made for something like Trek. I thought they'd show half a day's worth of Trek everyday. They definitely have enough episodes.

All they show now is "Ghost Hunters"

I miss watching Trek on TV spontaneously. I miss watching them late at night, it always gave watching reruns that special feel to it.

BBC America has 2 (or 3?) episodes of TNG every Saturday, if you get BBCA. Also, one of the new Retro channels (MYTV or one of those types, which I don't get yet, but, I believe should be added soon) carries TOS.

Re: How often do you watch DS9?

Thanks for the info, I'll have to see if my satellite service carries it.

Funny thing is, DS9 used to be my favorite, but I always end up getting used to watching the TNG episodes.

I always wondered if it were true about what they say-- DS9 was highly praised, but the reruns always got lower ratings, which is why we don't see it on TV.

It's been years!

Re: How often do you watch DS9?

l haven't watched it lately - l don't believe it's airing here at the moment. But even still l don't feel compelled to watch it no matter how much l enjoyed it in the past. The more l have the more episodes l want to gloss over! l really want to watch TNG and TOS... l don't remember them as well. But DS9 was my favourite and has my favourite species... l wonder what happened? Haven't watched any ST but the '11 movie in long time! o.0

Re: How often do you watch DS9?

I recently did a run through the entire season via netflix, though before that I hadn't seen any of it several years. I've seen every episode multiple times now, so there's really no need....occasionally I'll catch a clip on youtube.

Re: How often do you watch DS9?

My girlfriend (Lt Rowy) and I are going to be having a huge marathon of the Final Chapter of DS9 on Sunday. We're watching all of Trek in viewing order (see the link in my signature).

I have not watched it in years, but I have lots of favorite moments ingrained in my memories. Besides, I visit DS9 everyday on Star Trek Online. Favorite place in the game.

MeTV carries TOS on Saturdays at 9PM EST. In my area it's a digital sub-channel of the NBC affiliate WLWT-TV.

Personally, I really like both of those episodes. Vive la différence and all that. Oh, and before I forget - Allamaraine, count to four...

Re: How often do you watch DS9?

I'm watching a lot recently as I find the French subtitles and dubbing option good for practicing before i go back to france. I still find the special effects good to look at. The stories also have great rewatch value.

'Storyteller' is on my skip list ahead of those two. Move Along Home amused me a child for whatever reason. :P

I haven't seen an episode in a few years. I plan on watching the whole thing again when I finish my TNG rewatch.

Probably a few months ago, I watched seasons 3 through to season 7. Probably rewatch DS9 2 or 3 times per year.

Re: How often do you watch DS9?

I've seen it all the way through four times. I'll watch Emissary, some of the Ferengi eps and some Bashir eps as individual episodes now and then. The serial nature of the series has meant I rewatch it a lot less than VOY, ENT or TOS.
