The best episode of TNG - Part Four

Okay Trek fans, here's the game. The basic idea is your standard elimination game. I'll provide a list of the episodes for each season and you need to eliminate your least favorite or the one you deem the 'worst.' Please provide an EXPLANATION for why you are eliminating your choice and be sure to copy and paste the list with your choice removed. Finally, leave at least 2 eliminations before you eliminate another one. Not a very accurate way of determining the best episode, but a fun game nonetheless. Pretty simple. Enjoy!

Winners:
Season One - The Arsenal of Freedom
Season Two - The Measure of a Man
Season Three - The Best of Both Worlds (Part One)
Season Four -

The Best of Both Worlds (Part Two)
Family
Brothers
Suddenly Human

Eliminating Suddenly Human. Just found this one low quality compared to the rest of the season and that loud opera noise was really really annoying.

Season 4 is to me one of the strongest seasons, but I feel "The Loss" detracts from it. Basically nothing happens while the Enterprise slowly drifts toward [technobabble]. Oh yeah, and Troi is bitchy all episode because she is as limited as everyone else. Which she demands is treated as a handicap. There would have been a great oppourtunity for LaForge to put her in her place, but it doesn't happen.

I'm removing Qpid. It looks like that actors had fun making it, but it's a comic episode that is not all that funny.

Re: The best episode of TNG - Part Four

Removed: "Night Terrors"
Reason: I've been hearing about how scary this episode is, so I was sucked into watching it only to be disappointed because it wasn't scary enough for me. "Phantasms" and "Genesis" were scarrier. I was about to remove "In Therory" but "In Theory" was more interesting. I just wished they came up with a better plot about the holes and stuff

Episodes remaining:

Brothers
Remember Me

Data's Day

Devil's Due
Clues

Eliminated: "Legacy." This episode pointlessly introduces the sister of the (at this point) dead Tasha Yar. It's a rather unremarkable episode in a mostly terrific season.

Taking out the dreadful Devil's Due - it's not terribly interesting, fails to be either funny or suspenseful, and I don't like the guest star who played Ardra.

Goodbye Remember Me, the irony of title is probably the best thing about this utterly forgettable instalment.

First Contact:Because the first officer of the flagship would never be on this kind of mission.

Getting rid of "The Host" - I just find the Crusher love story to be rather adolescent in its presentation (with Crusher and Odan making out at every opportunity - barf). Additionally, Crusher's reaction to the final (female) host of Odan is perhaps understandable, but still remarkably non-progressive in its message (at least for TNG).

Re: The best episode of TNG - Part Four

I'm kicking out Clues.

Not enough depended on finding the solution. And why the hell didn't Data just say everyone was out for longer? IIRC, the only tip off was that Data was saying it was 30 seconds when it was really 24 hours. If he'd said they were out for 24 hours, any investigation would match up and there wouldn't have been a problem.

Wow!!! A lot of the best episodes have been kicked out early IMO. I'm going to remove Final Mission because it's a Wesley episode.

Agreed - I'm especially sad to see First Contact out! It's probably one of my top 3 TNG episodes.

The game rules say you need to give at least a short explanation.
