Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Season Three

Well, I'm going to do it:

Best of Both Worlds

There are 2 reasons why I'm doing this. 1) I want to see what episode would win out with this episode out of the picture. 2) There are episodes in season 3 that have much more rewatchability than BOBW, even though it is one of the best cliffhangers ever.

The Ensigns of Command
The Enemy
The Vengeance Factor
The Defector
Deja Q
A Matter of Perspective
The Offspring
Sins of the Father
Tin Man
Hollow Pursuits
Sarek

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Season Three

Well, that takes care of that.

A strong remainder of episodes here, but I think the weakest is The Vengeance Factor. Finally an episode with some strong guest actors. But the plot isn't very interesting. Perhaps if Yuta being the killer was left secret until the end, that might have made it better. It feels disjointed with her being meek, then a killer, then back to meek, then a killer. All the dramatic weight is Riker being sad for having to shoot her? Eh.

I'm gonna snuff "A Matter of Perspective" for being a lame play on Rashomon.

I like all the episodes remaining, but I think Tin Man isn't quite up to the same level as the rest.

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Season Three

I removed The Survivors cause it's my 2nd least favorite and like I said when I removed it "That episode gives me nightmares about getting a song stuck in my head."
I removed Yesterday's Enterprise for the reason I gave "my least favorite episode of season 3." Plus I felt like Yesterday's Enterprise might be one of the final 3 standing if I didn't remove it.
tomalak301 removed the second one I thought might make it to the final 3--Best Of Both Worlds.
Now I'm gonna remove the last one I think might make it to the final 3.
I hereby remove...wait for it...SAREK.
Now let's see who the final 3 end up being.

The Ensigns of Command
The Enemy
The Defector
Deja Q
The Offspring
Sins of the Father
Hollow Pursuits

I'll delete Sins Of The Father, as it's generally overrated and I don't like Klingon-centered episodes that much... Please forgive me!

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Season Three

Ok I'll take out The Ensigns of Command, it's not a terrible episode, but Gosheven's peformance (not helped by the whole dubbing 'incident') really let's it down and some of the dialogue on the surface is a bit clunky.

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Season Three

Am I allowed to delete another episode?
If so, I'll delete The Enemy. I was a bit disappointed with it when I watched the remastered episode, the episode had touched me more when I saw it for the first time a few years ago.

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Season Three

I say good-bye to "The Offspring". After "Measure of a Man" in season 2, Data having a child in season 3 seemed like an unnecessary add-on to me.

I don't know how Hollow Pursuits got this far along without being eliminated, but now's the time to say goodbye to Mr. Broccoli. Easily not as good as the other episodes

Well I can understand your reason no. 1 - but no. 2? Seriously? And when you say "one of the best cliffhangers", which is/are better? I´m honestly interested, since I didn´t watch all of DS9 an VOY.

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Season Three

I'll remove The Defector because Deja Q is one my two favorite Q episodes and I want it to win.
Plus I hate The Defector.

I think that this is one of the most suprising results.

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Season Three

This is fun. Let's do season 4 NOW. I want Data's Day to win.
Or if it gets voted out, I want to be the one to do it.

Yep, "Data´s Day" should definitely be among the final 5
