Just finished re-watching of DS9

Now I've just finished another round of DS9 rewatch. The second from the original run.

It took me almost 2 years to get there, but it was a great ride.

Watching the final montages and all it just left me sad, with a tear in the eye, remembering how great a show DS9 was. And a pitty that it is unlikely there will be another like it.

At least a small comfort...I may wait another few years, but the DVDs are well on their place and definitely there will be 3rd round, somewhere down the line...

Terrific show. Much of the first season doesn't do it for me, but starting with "Duet" the series becomes one of my favorites ever to say the least. Love it.

Well, don't worry. I'm about to eat my words a little in another thread, anyway...

I have said elsewhere that the timing of this episode was completely wrong. It was too near the beginning of the series when they were still setting the standard. If it had occurred say half way through the third season we would probably just have considered it to be another fun episode and laughed (a bit) and passed on. It does have its moments though. I quite like it when Quark is on his knees.

I think it's OK. DS9 has far worse episodes.

I have a weirdly fond place in my heart for it.

Re: Just finished re-watching of DS9

"Move Along Home" had its moments (Odo and the Starfleet guy sparring, Quark on his knees), but the Wadi were, without a doubt, the lamest. aliens. EVER! I'll repeat what I said in another thread: Games, mullets, sticks. LAME! Not to mention that damn rhyme getting stuck in my head ...

This is more true than you might realize. When it originally aired, it was at a time when DS9 had some solo time while TNG was in March re-runs. This is coming off a very strong Feb Sweeps from TNG (Ship In A Bottle, Face Of The Enemy, Tapestry, Birthright ...er, and Aquiel), whereas DS9, though strong out of the gate, wasn't able to hold its own in February.

So, if ever there was a time for DS9 to make a stand and strut its stuff, the March episodes would have been it. Instead, we got Move Along Home and The Nagus. Ouch.

I'm currently re-watching DS9 too, I'm on season 2. The first season, like TNG's first season, is rough but I'm over the hump now.

Re: Just finished re-watching of DS9

Sykonee, the more inside scoop you've got on the timing and ratings and reactions of episodes from those days, the more I'll read. I love these looks back at when a show originally aired, and unfortunately I wasn't even in kindergarten at that point.

You should see me on GateWorld. I used to ramble on about the off-screen nature of SG-1 daily.

Ah, heh. Then check out my DS9 Versus thread in this very forum. It's a week-by-week comparison of the show against its main competitors of the time: TNG, B5, and VOY. So far I've reached the end of Season 6.
