Re: I can never decide which episode to watch

I've been getting the blu-ray sets and am about halfway through S2- I just watch the next episode in order (skipping certain craptacular episodes that I never wish to see again).

Bite your tongue.

"Journey to Babel", "Gamesters of Triskelion", "Whom Gods Destroy", "Lights of Zetar", then throw in "Yesteryear".

and only one visit by relative episode (and they're the same one).
Well, I was thinking TNG eps with that one. It was almost a soap opera of forgotten and estranged relatives.

Re: I can never decide which episode to watch

I don't really have much of a process. I look at summaries of all the episodes somewhere like wikipedia to refresh my memory on them, then pick one that I remember liking but has been a while since I've seen it.

Re: I can never decide which episode to watch

I use a random number generator - Season;episode number. I keep a list on my iPhone - crossing off numbers as I go. If a previously selected episode comes up before completion, I simply generate another random choice. This technique works incredibly well, keeping things as "fresh" as possible.

Netflix plays them in order for me Yesterday it was 'Catspaw', today it will be 'I, Mudd'

Re: I can never decide which episode to watch

I' ve seen 'em soo many times now. i can only watch once every other week or so.

Often I let the kids pick, but I have veto power. No so-called humorous eps. No That Which Survives. Nothing I've seen too recently. Still leaves a lot. I'm fine with S3. But I prefer the wierder eps to the normal ones. Be well.

how do you decide which episode to watch?
Random impulse. Why, today I felt like maybe "Elaan of Troyius", an episode I've seldom watched (compared to... you know... others) but then changed my mind and went for an old standby, "The Enterprise Incident". Clearly I had season three on my mind for some reason.

I guess system-wise it's all about what you're looking for. Want a comedy, an action story, a morality parable, some space romans, a Vulcan with a missing brain... whatever whim takes you.

Re: I can never decide which episode to watch

I don't really have a method to my madness. I just watch whatever episode Spock shows emotion in. I'm such a girl. *blush* Or *cough* whichever ep he's got no shirt on in. *cough, cough*

No Mudd's Women either. I'm open to about 77, though. Watched And The Children Shall Lead lately, even.

Re: I can never decide which episode to watch

I too watched the series ad infinitum back in the '70s and '80s and don't need to see them all that often. Once in a great while, I'll stumble on a MeTV episode or pull one out on DVD because of a guest star/theme that I want to watch.

But if I had to choose by order, I'd pick airdate. That's the one I "grew up with" when the show started with an NBC peacock.
