Re: Top 10 episodes according to Den of Geek

I'm sorry but why is this guy important again? I might as well write a blog and say what my 10 favorite episodes are and then advertise it on all the Star Trek BBS's on the internet. Also, for him not to have In the Pale Moonlight anywhere in his top 10 makes him lose all credibility, which he started out as having none.

And Once More unto the Breach is his second favorite episode? When was the last time this forum talked about that episode? What is it about again?

Re: Top 10 episodes according to Den of Geek

Not sure if I'd put the same list, I'd definitely move Duet higher. "Once More Into the Breach." being #2 surprised me and I think we just had a TOS nostalgic writing up that list. It was an okay episode, that really only worked because it brought Kor back again.

The Way of the Warrior always struck me as overrated. Sure it's a lot of fanhype and a big battle, but they tried to cram WAY too much material into a two parter. Little Green Men and Trials and Tribbleations definitely get to make the list.

Two I'd probably drop are Doctor Bashir I presume and Our Man Bashir. Both are fun spoofs and good watches, but not top ten material. Far Beyond the Stars.. I dunno, I just never "got it" and honestly it bores me everytime I try and watch it. I get the message and it's a great one, but just seems very forced and crammed down your throat. Only interesting part for me was seeing the actors without their makeup.

It's Only a Paper Moon is a great episode and demonstrates how much war sucks... without even having a shot fired. The subplot of Vic's freedom vs Nog's escape is also compelling. The Visitor is my favorite Trek episode ever. That's just some powerful material and really captures the desperation of future Jake having lost his dad.

Episodes I'd include, In the Pale Moonlight, and Improbable Cause/Die is Cast deserve the list.

Re: Top 10 episodes according to Den of Geek

I was going to say that it was a bit of a random list of episodes, but it's good to see when people list favourites that aren't the usual suspects. The episodes on his list are all entertaining too.

I find it hard to rank my favourites, so I'll just shove them here for no real reason except OCD:

In The Pale Moonlight
Far Beyond The Stars
Trials and Tribble-ations
Call to Arms
Necessary Evil
Improbable Cause
The Die Is Cast
In Purgatory's Shadow
By Inferno's Light
Duet

This is why when I do a favorites list, I always include a second list of underrated favorite episodes too. I find a lot of the lists are the same, but I love it too when people say episodes that you don't expect, like Once More Unto the Breach.

With that being said, I was just surprised to see OMUTB as his second favorite episode. I honestly don't remember what it was about and it was just really random.

Agreed. Is this supposed to be a "The Best Episodes of DS9" or "These are my personal favorite episodes of DS9" list? Cause even though I love, say, Change of Heart, I know it's not one of DS9's best. I just like it.

It's a pretty solid list with a nice mix of comedy and drama.

Re: Top 10 episodes according to Den of Geek

I'd have gone with:

Nor the Battle to the Strong
Hard Time
Far Beyond the Stars
In The Cards
Rapture
Improbable Cause/The Die is Cast
Duet
Tacking into the Wind
The Visitor
In The Pale Moonlight

It's a really tough one since DS9 is so strong, but there are definitely episodes on the denofgeek list that are somewhat bemusing.
