Re: Episode of the Week: 4x02 "Family"

One of my very favourite TNG eps, purely for the Picard story strand. Saw it for the first time in 20 years when SyFy got to season four of their HD broadcasts recently. Every bit as good as I remembered - the scene in which Picard breaks down after the vineyard scrap is one of the most moving bits in Trek IMO, and beautifully acted by Stewart.

Everyone else who enjoys this episode has already stated for me how satisfying and noteworthy "Family" is. I wanted to chime in, anyway and say that I'm glad to see it has so many fans.

I love this episode. Picard's vineyard just looks beautiful, I don't know if it was all on a stage or not but wow.

I refuse to believe that Rene died in the fire - he probably escaped on some grand adventure and meets Picard again in the future.

Our episode opens with Worf and Riker on the bridge of the Enterprise while she's undergoing repairs from the Borg attack.
Not my copy it doesn't. Opening shot of a large spider-spacestation gripping the enterprise, then cut to Riker and random blue-shirt in observation room, then Worf enters.

Don't get me wrong, I liked the episode too, and I wouldn't normally nitpick, but I believe Family has the distinct pleasure of being the only episode of TNG without a scene on the bridge.

There are three episodes with no bridge scenes - four if you count Shades of Gray, which only had stock footage of the bridge. Liaisons and Dark Page are the other two.
