Hey folks! So, I thought this might be a fun exercise. My girlfriend is as huge of a geek as any of us -- and yet, somehow, before she and I began dating, she hadn't actually seen all that much of Star Trek. I've been guiding her through the franchise, giving her a "Greatest Hits" tour of TOS and TNG. We finished TNG and the TNG movies just in time to watch PIC together -- but now, we're onto DS9! For the earlier seasons, we're mostly following Max Temkin's guide entitled "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine in 82.5 Hours." I think once we get into Season Three or Four, we'll just start watching everything. In Season One, we've watched "Emissary, Parts I & II," "Past Prologue," "A Man Alone," "Q-Less," "The Nagus," "Battle Lines," "Progress," "Duet," and "In the Hands of the Prophets." So far in Season Two, we've watched "The Homecoming," "The Circle," "The Seige," "Cardassians," "Rules of Acquisition," "Necessary Evil," "The Alternate," and "Profit and Loss." We also actually skipped ahead and watched "The Wire" after "The Alternate" but before "Profit and Loss." It's really cool re-visiting a show I've loved for the better part of 25 years with someone who's never seen it before, and we hit on an idea: Why not start a TrekBBS thread based on her reactions to episodes? She's going to be replying to this thread under her own username with her mini-reviews, starting with "The Wire" and "Profit and Loss." Remember: She doesn't know what's coming, so please be careful not to spoil her! (I had a close call with "The Wire." I didn't want her to know that Garak's first name was Elim, since that is the twist ending, but I accidentally referred to him as "Elim" one night! Fortunately she didn't hear me at first, so the episode's twist was preserved.) Hopefully this'll be a fun thread for everyone.
