Not sure why but I actually enjoyed Royale slightly more than I used to when re-watching it, can't remember the last time I watched it before that. It's still not a good episode by any stretch of the imagination, but I still liked the part where they discovered Colonel Ritchie's body the best.

RAMA
That episode could've been much better had they played it more as kitsch and camp rather than dead serious as they did. However, Worf answering the phone is worth the price of admission.

WORF
She wants to know if we want room service?
RIKER
Tell her "no."
WORF (stern)
NO.
Worf slams phone.

That was priceless.
For me, it was kitsch in many places, with the drama mixed in! Also, I felt Worf's "No" was more deadpan than stern, which made the gag for me.

"Manhunt" - a funny, but pretty pointless episode, that goes nowhere. Most "interesting" scene is Majel Roddenberry talking to herself as Lwaxana and the ship's computer. It also features a visit to a planet called Blueblurry.

I was surprised Worf even knew what to do with a phone.

Not to mention that everyone in Star Trek both before and after this episode seems to have a good idea on what Room Service actually is.

^ Data said something about them "making up the room", so he didn't quite have it.

This is a guy who every time he encounters a door that doesn't open as soon as he nears it assumes the door is malfunctioning, rather than, you know, it being one of those manual jobs which he's sure to have encountered in his life. Like the manual doors in the Starfleet Academy dorms.

Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Ugh, "Samaritan Snare" is even worse than I remembered. At the time, I probably thought the Pakleds were kinda fun in their dumb, stupid way, but now everything about them just makes me cringe. From their design to their overly idiotic portrayal.

And the fact the Enterprise crew seem genuinely baffled for good long while about what to do just makes it even worse.

The B-story with Picard and Wesley is somewhat better, but I still couldn't help but laugh at the shots of shuttlecraft crawling along at what looks like 3mph. Lol

The only silver lining to that stinker is that it set up Tapestry.

I don't have any real problem with this episode. I enjoy it for what it is - love the Pakleds!

I don't understand why they ever take *any* sublight journeys on a shuttle when a quick warp jump on the mothership would be adequate

Yeah, good point. Considering they're taking such a slow-ass shuttle, it's obvious the planet couldn't have been too far away. Which means the Enterprise could have warped over there in a matter of seconds.

Or alternatively, why didn't they use the warp engines that are clearly attached to the sides of the shuttle?!

I've wondered about that too. Is warp travel on support craft only available on run-abouts? Even the larger shuttles have warp engines on them yet are never used, on screen at least.
