^ Data's Day and Elementary, Dear Data are both great fun.

^Yeah, Data's Day is quite fun on a personal level. Clues is a different kind of fun, where when you watch it, you get two different performances. One is the thoughtful officer following orders, right up to his own downfall, & the other is the mysterious "WTF has gone wrong with Data?"

In keeping with other recommendations here, a great Data episodes is Peak Performance from Season 2. Data attempts to beat Kolrami at Stratagema. The final scene is priceless.

Starship Mine. Data doing small-talk is awesome, as is the senior staff's collective desire to take the piss out of Picard for his saddle.

Add Yesterday's Enterprise to this and you've got two great hours. Of course, there's alot more, but you said you only have time for two.

If you want to stay with the Data theme, "In Theory" is one of my favorite Data episodes.

The Defector. Not Data-themed, but just about my favorite TNG episode. Or Unification 1 and 2 or Redemption 1 and 2 or All Good Things 1 and 2 or The Best of Both Worlds 1 and 2. Although judging by the time you posted you've probably already watched your two episodes.

I like that one...just to see where it all started.

Favorite scenes: Data in the holodeck whistling, Data and McCoy, Saucer seperation, exploration of the caves, David Gerrold standing in for Brent Spiner lol!

Episodes I watched:

Q Who:





..and Pen Pals...just because I dont watch it that often.
