Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Final Round

I don't think In the Pale Moonlight has gotten a single vote during any of the stages. I think it's obvious where this is going. The Visitor refuses to go down, but it's inevitable.

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Final Round

Correcting the vote (somehow 1 vote got lost for WYLB, making it 3 votes before mine), I'll eliminate What you leave behind. The Pah'Wraith part just didn't do anything for me.

First vote in the next round goes to The Die is Cast - it's a good episode, a good start to a two-parter. But honestly, I think it's hard to compare the individual parts of 2-part-episodes to single part ones. They just don't stand alone, therefore don't work as well individually for me.

The Die is Cast - 1
Improbable Cause - 0
The Visitor - 0
In the Pale Moonlight - 0
Tacking into the Wind - 0

Actually The Die is Cast is the second part. It only comes before Improbable Cause in the list because it won that season.

Anyway, I vote for the first part, because I think the second pays off what the first sets up. Granted, it's been a while since I saw these two, the others are fresher in my memory.

Thanks for the correction, somehow I get confused with my DS9 episode title memory nowadays. *g* In any case, my reasoning still applies, since without a first part a second usually can't stand on its own, therefore it can't easily be compared with stand-alone episodes.

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Final Round

I'll vote for The Die is Cast, even though I like it as much as Improbable Cause. I love all these episodes, but I know what my top two are, so it's tactical thinking too.

The Die is Cast - 3
Improbable Cause - 1
The Visitor - 1
In the Pale Moonlight - 0
Tacking into the Wind - 1

Re: The least disliked episode of DS9 - Final Round

I'm going with Improbable Cause. It's a great episode, and is a great example of why DS9 is a great series as the show utilizes their guest characters so extensively. Both Improbable Cause and The Die is Cast are great episodes, but each episode is just one half of a whole. They're much weaker if judged separately, and Improbable Cause was a lot of set up for the second part.

The Die is Cast - 3
Improbable Cause - 2
The Visitor - 1
In the Pale Moonlight - 0
Tacking into the Wind - 1

I eliminate The Die Is Cast

The Die is Cast - 4
Improbable Cause - 2
The Visitor - 1
In the Pale Moonlight - 0
Tacking into the Wind - 1

Among the great episodes left, I think it seems like it's just a little bit knocking down the pins that were set up in Improbable Cause.

I believe The Visitor and In the Pale Moonlight are the best episodes. The other two do not compare. One vote for Improbable Cause.

Improbable Cause - 1
The Visitor - 1
In the Pale Moonlight - 0
