Season 1: Not as bad as I remember?

I've been watching through the start of season 1 lately, and I'm resolved to skip fewer episodes than last time. The only ones I skipped this time were Code of Honor and Justice so far.

Last Outpost is exactly as bad as I remember. But Lonely Among Us? The Selay/Antican B plot was terrible, but the main story was actually rather good, same with The Battle. Naked Now, not a good episode but not the horrid piece of crap I think of it as.

The show clearly hasn't found its identity yet. And it's interesting knowing that Worf was originally considered the least important character as he makes one of the biggest immediate impressions.

Season 1 feels like a show from ten years earlier than it aired, and seasons 3 and on feel like a show from ten years later. But that might be why season 1 has the charm it has. It didn't have the same amount of lore to draw on or live up to and it was still just out on its own in a vacuum.

Season One was poor overall. Both Justice and Code of Honor were hideous, The Naked Now ill-considered and done far too early in the life of the series, Skin of Evil equally abysmal, and Haven lifeless and boring.

Season One had it moments. I though Heart of Glory a good episode, and personally liked 11001001. However most of he remaining episodes were boring. Season Two didn't improve on that much.

Yeah i thought season 1 was ok, some nice little gems in there, but you can see they were still finding their feet, season 2 does improve a good bit, Measure of a man is star Trek at its best for me, but that season end episode was bad to say the least.
