Season 2 is underrated. I think it's on par with season 6.

S2 has some excellent episodes, but it also has The Outrageous Okona (IMO the worst episode of any Trek series), The Icarus Factor, Samaritan Snare, Manhunt, Shades of Gray and four episodes that don't even exist.

Please feel free to mention the episodes that don't in future Episode of the Week posts if they occur after Pen Pals. I'm curious to see what you would consider worse than Shades of Gray to the point that it doesn't even exist.

S2 has 22 episodes. The others have 26. The four episodes that don't exist are 2x23, 2x24, 2x25 and 2x26.

Ah, writers' strikes. Responsible for four missing TNG episodes, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and reality shows.

Unions, yaaaaaaay.

Yup. Damn those folks who want a fair share of the pie for their hard work...

The 2007/2008 strike caused the CBS show "Cane" to fizzle and caused Nestor Carbonell to come back to "Lost", where he belonged.

On the downside, it also led to "Pushing Daisies" never quite finding it's audience, and both "Heroes" and "Sarah Connor Chronicles" dropping some storylines altogether.

If "Enterprise" had gone seven seasons, like it should've, the strike would've occurred during the seventh season. I always wondered how they would've dealt with it; coming back with some episodes later, or just ending the season early and coming back with another season, as many other shows did.

You can't really blame reality shows on the strike. They were around long before that. I think they're probably the offspring of "Survivor", which itself was a product of the game show craze that happened in the wake of "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?". Much as I loathe them all (Millionaire only because they aired it FOUR NIGHTS A WEEK), we probably wouldn't have had "Lost" without "Survivor".

Just a curious bit of trivia -when Picard is on the Warbird -We hear a countdown in Romulan -I belive that is the first and only time we get to hear it spoken in all of the various TV series-I know we get words said here and there "jolan Tru" etc but thats the first time its been done as "spoken"

Re: Episode of the Week: 2x11 "Contagion"

I rewatching TNG from the beginning for the first time in over a decade and I was really surprised how much better S2 was than I remembered. A big jump in quality from S1 to S2, not that it didn't have it's stinkers (and I hated, HATED Pulaski).

Pulaski is an acquired taste. I think they improved her character by the 2nd half of the season. Less stodgy.
