Ok, after the 1st rewatch it starts getting boring

THANK GOD! actually. I thought, this is the best series in the history of the universe and it makes me feel ok that i can 'shed it away from me', not having to rewatch it.

(it started getting boring about the 4th season)

Re: Ok, after the 1st rewatch it starts getting boring

What can I say except that I completely disagree - at least I think I do, assuming you are saying TNG started getting boring about the 4th season. Seasons 1 and 2 were, to put it charitably, pretty damn weak, but seasons 3-6 were fabulous. Season 7 was mixed, but it too had some great episodes and ended with one of the best series finales on TV. So as I said, I disagree. But if you're happy to be bored with it (?), who am I to stand in your way?

It's the best series in the universe, but it's too boring to rewatch... ok?

I still rewatch a lot of TNG and still enjoy it. It's personal preference IMO.

Also depends on pacing.

Re: Ok, after the 1st rewatch it starts getting boring

I totally disagree. I've watched the entire series probably 20 times at this point, maybe even more. There are times that I feel burned out on it sure, but usually a year or two of being without it makes it seem fresh once more.

This is one case where not owning the DVDs can be a good thing. I've never had the ability to watch any of the Trek series whenever I wanted to. I've always been at the mercy of reruns. So when a new channel starts showing TNG I'm usually genuinely excited and go out of my way to watch it.

WGN America's current 1 am timeslot works great for me.

I don't think I've ever rewatched the whole series. I just pick and choose.

Seasons 4-6 are some of the best TV ever. I have to wonder what in the world happened with Season 7 though. Some really odd episodes.

Ron Moore admitted they were running on empty by that point and maybe TNG should have ended with S6.

Yep. In fact, I just rewatched The Inner Light and Journey's End this last week and enjoyed them a lot. I'm glad I have the DVDs at my disposal if I ever feel in the mood. Same goes with Star Trek, DS9, and Voyager.

In its original run, I essentially stopped watching in season 7. It just wasn't the same for some reason. But I did tune in for the finale.

There are some episodes that are hard to rewatch, but I find that the rewatchable ones far outnumber the unrewatchable ones.

All Good Things is one of fave finales for ANY show I've watched, really. Lovely way of bookending the series with Q's Trial and the basic themes of Trek itself, the human adventure.

Of course, the downside was the AGT set the quality bar too high for any of the movies to match. Including FC.

That's dedication for you! Wow. I'd be tapping you for my team if I were in a TNG quiz or something.
