Re: A great way to spend 55 minutes

"Fascination" may be considered a nice "couples show" for those just getting into DS9

I can't think of any episodes other than "Little Green Men" that your 5-year-old might like but others may think of something.

You guys are gonna kill me for this suggestion, but perhaps Move Along Home will be to the five year old's liking?

Heh, could be. They made the episode to appeal to someone, and it sure wasn't most of the fans I know of

Hmm. Now there's a thought! Maybe I'll ambush her with it when she gets home.

Both of those are good suggestions.

I was thinking about "Little Green Men" or "Take Me Out To The Holosuite" for the humor and "Captive Pursuit" for the aliens/monsters.

Well, forget that. It looks like Netflix removed about 50 DS9 eps.

I think I'll just have TMOTTH on when she comes home and see if if she shows any interest.

I think with DS9 you basically have to love the characters to enjoy the show, which can't really happen after ANY first episode. It takes a committment! Sad but true.

It takes commitment just watching season 1, but at least the series rewards you from season 3 and onwards...

Well, that didn't work! She sat down for about 30 seconds before heading off into the other room.

While she was in there, I snuck in another DS9 ep., "Looking for Par'Mach in All The Wrong Places." Man, maybe I should have shown her THAT one first!

Ah, well.

Yeah, that's the thing. *I* think these episodes are brilliant because I love the characters. To an outsider, I might as well be watching Zoobilee Zoo.

Nah, I think it's a lost cause. She likes TNG a bit, but thinks TOS is corny and DS9 is boring. Nobody's perfect.

I definitely think "Way of the Warrior" was too heavy an episode to get them started. Look for an episode with Worf that also has a decent comedy angle. That may help bring her around.

Re: A great way to spend 55 minutes

I bumping this thread because I've begun yet again to try and force DS9 on my fiance... and it's working a bit this time! I've been skipping around a bit, cherry-picking episodes that I think she might like.

I started with "Doctor Bashir, I presume" because she's familiar with Picardo from Stargate: Atlantis and it has some comedy and romance. She enjoyed that one. While we were watching it she asked about female Ferengi, so I showed her "Rules of Acquisition" the next day. I didn't tell her that Pel was female, but she guessed it right before the reveal. She liked that one as well. She wanted to see another one with Pel but I had to disappoint her. Instead, we watched "House of Quark" which she also enjoyed. And then she picked "Little Green Men" from the Netflix list based on the title. She said that she likes the Ferengi episodes. We also watched "Let He Who is Without Sin..." which she liked well enough but it made me mad at Worf all over again. Uggh. No wonder I have seen this one since it originally aired.

But the good news is that she's diggin' some DS9! I may go with "Looking for Par'Mach..." next. Or maybe "Our Man Bashir" after we watch Skyfall.

A great way to spend 55 minutes

How about Siege of AR-558. The greatest Trek epsiode ever, in my opinion...

I really like "Image In The Sand" and "Shadows And Symbols" (the openers to S7), as they show who each of the characters are with their own storylines, introduce Ezri to the universe, show the friendships and bonds that exist, where they're at with the war, without really needing to know that much about the series to begin with.
