How Often Do You Watch DS9?

Since DS9 is the best Trek series and it is basically one evolving story, how often do you watch the series from beginning to end? Just curious.

Re: How Often Do You Watch DS9?

The series as a whole? Just once in its initial run. Since then I have repeatedly watched many of the episodes at random. But incidentally I'm in the process of rewatching the whole series right now. Currently I'm in the middle of the second season.

Re: How Often Do You Watch DS9?

Just when it's on TV... and never entirely. For instance, I can only stand the B-plot of episodes like Meridian, and I can't stand Move Along Home at all.

Re: How Often Do You Watch DS9?

Episode by episode, only once during the original airing. These days I find myself watching based on themes or characters. Sometimes I'll watch the Ferengi episodes. Or maybe S31 episodes. Or Hippocratic Oath and The Quickening back to back, etc. It used to be my ritual after work to sit down with a meal and a nice episode of DS9. Then I bought B5 and the old War of the Worlds series and watched those instead for awhile. Now I'm back on DS9 again, a couple episodes a week.

Oddly enough, the only series I revisited on an episodic basis was ENT. I skipped almost all of season 3 during the original airing. So when I bought the series I went straight to season 3, one episode at a time.

Re: How Often Do You Watch DS9?

I missed most of the first two seasons when it first aired, so when I bought the DVDs I watched the whole thing through over 6 months. It was the first time I had seen the show for about 5 years because they stopped showing reruns here soon after the show ended.

A few months after that I decided to do a rewatch of only the great episodes starting with Emissary, Duet, ITHOTP, The Circle Trilogy and Necessary Evil... but I just couldn't do it, I had to watch them all so I went back and watched all the episodes I skipped and proceeded the whole way through. That was almost three years ago now.

I'm not the sort of person who picks an episode and watches it, I always have to do a full rewatch. So I watched the whole thing through twice.

Re: How Often Do You Watch DS9?

I've been watching a lot of DS9 recently, finishing up season 2 and starting season 3 this week. My trek viewing goes in spurts. I'm in a real big DS9 mode right now, but a while back, I couldn't watch anything other than Voyager (Which I was finishing my collection pretty much). It's all part of what mood I'm in and if I feel like watching DS9.

As to what episodes I watch, DS9 comes in order with a few exceptions. All the other series (Except for Enterprise) are picked at random but most of the time it's if a certain episode is talked about here or if an episode is never talked about here (Like Tribunal) than I would watch what I haven't watched in a long time.

Re: How Often Do You Watch DS9?

I'm watching it in order for the first time, saving the episodes for the end of the week as I watch one on Thursday and one on Friday each week. It's a fun way to end a week, except when the episodes are disappointing, as was the case as I just watched "Prodigal Daughter". I was excited to learn more about Ezri (really digging that character, so far), but that episode got way too caught up in an uninteresting plot. I'm hoping for better from "The Emperor's New Cloak" and "Field of Fire", which apparently also show us some new things about her.

Re: How Often Do You Watch DS9?

The last time I watched it all the way through would probably be late 2006 in 2007. Not sure how much I watched last year but so far this year I wanted watched an entire episode yet.

Re: How Often Do You Watch DS9?

I'm watching it start to end right now, I'm halfway through S4.

I watch it start to end every couple of years, same with other shows I like, Like B5, Firefly, etc.

I watch DVD's at least 3-4x per week. I can't watch it from beginning to end-way too impatient

Re: How Often Do You Watch DS9?

I'm constantly watching one series or another... I probably work through one every 2 or 3 months, watching an episode or two per night before bed... I've probably seen DS9 from start to finish about 15 times now. Don't think any less of me, I do get out of the house :-)

Re: How Often Do You Watch DS9?

I doubt I'll watch it again, all the way from "Emissary" to "What You Leave Behind" again, but I watch some of DS9 once a week or more, usually.

Re: How Often Do You Watch DS9?

well, seeing as how all the ds9 videos got taken off of youtube in the past couple of days, i'll never watch all the way through ds9. i might get the dvds on netflix, but there's no way i'll be able to afford to buy them. i made it through season 6, tho (skipping about thirty episodes along the way), so it was a good start.

Re: How Often Do You Watch DS9?

I tried to watch a season five episode the other day and couldn't make it through. Still find seasons 1 - 3 superior in pretty much every way.
