    If I remember correctly there is an all day Labor Day TNG Marathon on Sci-fi.
    Just thought I would post it for those who may want to watch but don't know about it.

    I've got a big cookout to go to during the afternoon and evening, but I'll try to catch a few episodes during the morning hours while I'm getting ready to leave the house. TNG isn't my favorite TREK spinoff anymore but it's always going to have a very warm and special place in my heart and is a fair sight better than some of the TREK that came after it.

    I just watched 'The Inner Light' for the first time in ages, and it still gets to me. The music is so haunting!

    "Tell them of us, my darling." :(

    Patrick Stewart really nailed this one. :techman:

    I just watched Yesterday's Enterprise. I love the quote, "Let us make sure history never forgets the name Enterprise." It's a classic.
    I also caught an error and I'm hoping someone can verify it for me:
    In the very last scene, Guinan asks Geordi to tell her about Tasha Yar. GEORDI IS WEARING THE BATTLE UNIFORM! I'd like independent verification though. The timeline is back to normal so he should be wearing the regular tunic, but I swear it has a black cuff.

    I think voters made the right calls. I've watched The Best of Both Worlds and Yesterday's Enterprise. I missed Inner Light, it is still one of my favorites. I wish they had run Family right after the BOBW though... they really go together well.

    Yes, indeed, Geordi is wearing the alternate universe uniform at the end of the episode. Oops!

    I've been having my own TNG marathon on DVD over the last few days/week.

    Better picture quality, no syndication edits, no commercials, and no advertisement banners.

    watching the last one "Pegasus" right now.

    its funny that scifi all day in between eps has been showing/saying "next on enterprise" instead of tng in the mini promo's.

    Watched five of the episodes in the marathon when I wasn't at a Labor Day cookout and party. "The Pegasus" holds up infinitely better than the much inferior "TATV..." which sprang from it eleven years later. It's so hard to fit Riker and Troi's physical appearances and holodeck antics from the ENT finale into that one TNG episode from over a decade beforehand and have the whole combined mess make much sense that its no wonder even some TNG fanatics prefer to pretend that "TATV" never happened.
