Re: Episode of the Week: 2x22 "Shades of Gray"

Even so, when you have three days to make an episode isn't the right approach to just roll out and examine some character's personal quirk by having that quirk somehow be necessary to collapse some spatial anomaly? Or have some possessing spirit floating around the ship? Or have a disease spreading around the ship that changes their behavior in some interesting, personally revealing way? Just take some common space opera standard and let the characters speak for themselves.

Shades of Grey is something the writers of Full House would think of.

If you go by those lists, TNG and DS9 had the best bottle episodes.

VOY and ENT had the worst.
Also, you can really see how much Voyager's pilot must've gone over, the majority of their bottle shows are in season 1!

Perhaps what hurts it as well as being a bad episode is that it is the season finalé.
I agree with you, but I'm glad that they were able to bring back Dr. Crusher for season three.
