Re: Episodes/Movies You Have No Desire to Revisit...

I have no desire to watch any episode of Voyager or The Next Generation ever again.

I've found that over the years that I hate "holodeck episodes." While I might have enjoyed some of them the first go around I generally can't watch them multiple times. Without further ado.

Heroes and Demons - VOY
Dramatis Personae - DS9
Shades of Grey - TNG
The Paradise Syndrome - TOS

The Big Goodbye - TNG

er, only two of those episodes are really "holodeck episodes."
That statement didn't really have anything to do with my list as a whole. Just kind of a thought that got me started on trying to identify episodes I didn't like. I'm not really a big fan of the "crew is acting crazy because of whatever disease, anomoly, possesion" episodes either.

Oh, I forgot one...

I'd rather pass a kidney stone than watch Melora again.

If I'm honest my selections for this thread would all be Voyager episodes. Narrowing it down to 10 is impossible though. I rewatch all the films apart from Generations and 2009 because they're boring.

If there was any reason I wouldn't wanna rewatch The Inner Light it would be because I cry at the end.

Re: Episodes/Movies You Have No Desire to Revisit...

TNG: Shades of Grey
DS9: Melora, Rivals, One Little Ship, Hard Time, Far Beyond the Stars
VOY: [Any episode that did not hinge on Seven or The Doctor being the central character of either A or B story]
ENT: Terra Nova, Carpenter Street, Daedalus

I'd also like to add that I'm in complete agreement with BillJ's original post... I've always found Star Trek rewatchable because it provides a great sci-fi escape and I'm sure it was designed to be rewatched so that little details could be appreciated; Star Trek is certainly not the first to use this kind of reward system in entertainment, but it is certainly in part the reason why we all post here.

I was going to say Insurrection, but having heard how funny the Frakes/Sirtis commentary is, I may have to pop the Blu Ray in soon.

I dunno, I always thought the Alamarine one... "Move Along Home" was funny as a kid. Though yeah... now it's just silly at best.

Honestly the worst ep of DS9 season 1 to me was the Storyteller.

Can't believe this episode hasn't been mentioned more in this thread. It's the only one that I'm truly embarrassed to watch with any non-Star Trek person.

Re: Episodes/Movies You Have No Desire to Revisit...

TOS: "Mark of Gideon" - Just because the concept is so absurd. An overcrowded planet, yet they can build a full-size recreation of the Enterprise???

TNG: "Masks" and that awful one with Alexander and Troi's mom in the mudbath. The whole first season is also pretty hard to watch now. The whole concept of Starfleet being perfect and everybody getting along made for ham-fisted dialogue: "I'm with Starfleet. We don't lie." Ughhhh!!

DS9: Couldn't think of one until I saw the post about "Profit and Lace". Agree 100%. "The Storyteller" I think is the title of another one that bores me. 1st season episode where O'Brien has to tell a story to stop some cloud from attacking people on a planet.

The test of time is the test that doesn't lie.

1. "Let He Who Is Without Sin" -- Haven't watched it since 1996.

2. "And the Children Shall Lead" -- Seen it once. Ever.

3. "Threshold" -- Watched it in 1996. Watched it again in last year on Netflix out of morbid curiosity. Never again.

4. "When the Bough Breaks" -- Haven't seen this in over 20 years. No need to watch it again.

There are probably others that I should add to this list but I think I could bring myself to sit through them. These four, I'm never going to touch again. Of course "never say never" but, realistically, I doubt it.

The "never say never" is there in case I end up in a situation where I'm showing someone an entire series and they insist on watching every episode. Otherwise, it's not happening.

Re: Episodes/Movies You Have No Desire to Revisit...

Movie - Nemesis. I think anyone who has seen it would agree.

Voyager - "Fury" ... I was looking forward to seeing the return of Kes, but this episode ... ugh. Ms. Lein must have seriously needed the money after she read the script. That, or she signed up to do it before she read the script. Whichever it was, the episode stank out loud. When Voyager came out on DVD and I did a re-watch, that was the one I didn't watch. Haven't seen it since it aired originally, and don't plan to make the mistake of tuning in again. I'd rather watch a random episode of Enterprise than this crappy episode.
