Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Final Round

I'll eliminate Necessary Evil. It's probably the one episode left I wouldn't place in my top 20.

Reset the scores and voted for Tacking in the Wind. It's great and everything, but it's placement in the final arc makes it hard for me to think of it as an episode - I have trouble remembering which events happen in which episodes at that point.

Purgatory's Shadow: There are too many Garak vehicles on this list, and this is the weakest, a pale imitation of Improbable Cause.

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Final Round

FOr me it's got to be the "The Visitor". Sure it's a good episode but I was more enaged by the other episodes. I was also a fan of some of the other characters than the Sisko's

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Final Round

Why Do I get the feeling from here on in the voting might be a little less decisive where as before we had one or two clear episodes in contention for elimination.

Because you're right. I'll add another "1" with Sacrifice of Angels. Didn't much care for how quickly and suddenly the occupation arc concluded.

I vote The Wire.

Because every single other episode on the list is on the shortlist of best episodes in the series, and The Wire is just a good Garak ep.

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Final Round

I'll eliminate The Wire - Excellent Garak episode, but that's about it. The other episodes are about more than just one character.

The first vote after resetting the score goes to Sacrifice of Angels. It's the weakest of the episodes left.

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Final Round

In Purgatory's Shadow, still a pale imitation of Improbable Cause. I'll feel bad if the final choices are all action episodes.
