Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Season One

I'm going to eliminate the pilot "Encounter at Farpoint" sure it has it's momments and it introduces us to Q but I don't think it's the best that S1 of TNG had to offer.

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Season One

I think it's notable that not a single episode picked thus far has made me go, "What??? You eliminated that!"

The list is getting down to eps wherein the major complaint is "Why would I want to watch that again? It just reeks of bad special effects, an 80's vibe, and mediocre plot"

For that I pick The Arsenal of Freedom.

I thought The Battle would be eliminated before this. I'm not a fan of (early TNG) Ferengi, or "mind control" as a plot device, so it's gone.

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Season One

The Neutral Zone.

So it was about 20th century people woken up from cryostasis, but it was also about the introduction to Romulans (and a hint at what became the Borg). I still can't tell which was the A-plot and which was the B-plot. Early TNG sure had a knack for ruining alien introductions - first the Ferengi, now the Romulans. The stereotypical Southern guy and the stereotypical Wall Street fat cat were grating. Why did this subplot even need to exist?

Obviously to show how disgustingly inhuman the TNG crew are.

CRUSHER:"People feared dying. It terrified them"

Yes Beverly, I've seen how far you've all come in overcoming *that*.

PICARD: "Well, they're alive now. We're going to have to treat them as living human beings. "

Darn.

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Season One

So sad. Some of the best season one episodes have been removed.
My choice is Datalore. I don't like any of the episodes with Lore in them.

I gotta remove Home Soil for one reason: it's boring.

Eliminating Coming of Age, all the remaining episodes are clearly superior to it.

I suspect I know which one will be the last episode standing.

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Season One

I just noticed this list has an error.

The episode is Where No One Has Gone Before. Political correctness, dontchaknow.

It's also my choice. Of the four that's left, it's the one I like the least. It's a great episode aside from the Roddenberry wankfest. So the character with his namesake is now a Mozart, going beyond space and time. Wonderful.

What gets them out of this mess is collective happy thoughts? This isn't Neverland.

You forgot to copy and paste the list then remove your choice.

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Season One

I eliminate Conspiracy because I think the bug thing ended up being stupid and gross and didn't go any of the interesting places it could have gone.

And I wouldn't mind either of the others winning.
