I wonder, why does DS9 have the ”comedy” episodes like 'Ferengi Love Songs' and 'The Magnificent Ferengi'? Does someone really like them? I'm on my rewatch of DS9's later seasons and I just skip those episodes, they have nothing to do with anything. All that money and time could have been used for something interesting about the, I don't know, the WAR that is going on... Yes, for example TNG had its own silly episodes, for example when Lwaxana came around, but TNG didn't have an ongoing storyline that needed fast continuation. In DS9's case, viewers had to wait one week for a new episode and then another week for an episode that would actually focus on the main story. When there were two of these ”comedy” episodes in a row, it's close to a month after a new episode comes along with the main story. These days it doesn't make much difference when you have access to all episodes anytime, but instead of 'Who Mourns For Morn?' and 'Profit and Lace', wouldn't it be much more interesting to see stories about the situation with the war than Quark in drag?
