Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Final Round

I guess I'll add my vote for Family, I like it a lot, but really the reason why I like it so much is mostly for Picard's arc of recovering from BOBW, the rest is pretty mediocre.

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Final Round

I'll go for Redemption, Part 2 this time. It was a solid enough two parter, but not on the scale of The Best of Both Worlds, and part 2 was certainly disappointing anyway. I'd say the episodes other than that are very good to excellent.

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Final Round

I'll pick another different one and add a vote for family because it was boring and I want it to go before disaster (seriously peeps disaster is a great episode! It's better than quite a few of the episodes on there) Now please someone get rid of family

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Final Round

Well I guess I'll get rid of Family because I watched it recently and, while I really love the Picard storyline, that's really the only part of it I do love.

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Final Round

Huzzah new round! I've run out of episodes I really dislike so I'll go for Tapestry again. Same reasons as before (it's boring and Picard has sex with someone half his age)

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Final Round

I'm going to add a point for Redemption II. I have a clear memory of how the plots evolve for all of the other episodes on the list...except Redemption II. I didn't find it particularly memorable, compelling, or entertaining. It seemed to try for epicness, but it just didn't hit home for me. It's not a bad episode, but for me definitely the weakest of the ones remaining.

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Final Round

Another strike for 'Disaster,' while it's not a bad episode, it's definitely not the greatest, particularly the whole 'trapped in an elevator' scenario that's been done in pretty much every TV show.

Redemption II have to go. Data acting like a badass was a bit too much for me.

I'll vote for Redemption II and knock it off the list. I disliked the fact that Part 2 focused so little on Worf, when he was so important in Part 1. Also the Duras sisters were beaten a little too easily.

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Final Round

Ok I'll give a vote for Disaster, it's a fun episode but I can never get over the fact that Troi, a Starfleet officer, does not know the most basic premise of warp core containment, regardless of whether her rank is honorary or not!!

Disaster... singing kids aside, Troi uses her inept blundering in this episode as an inspiration for her to be in command.
