    Recent arguments and "top" threads got me thinking... what are your top three WORST episodes?

    I think I can poll this... based on what I believe MOST people have expressed as their worst episodes.

    Are you going to do this is all five of the forums? I was thinking about doing something like this, but after all the polls I've done lately, I've had it with polls for a while. :lol:

    Immunity Syndrome is counted among the worst episodes? I really like that episode... *sighs

    Well, I voted for Spock's Brain, I, Mudd and The Way to Eden.

    I wouldn't say that about 'IS'... I was hoping to cover all "contentious" eps. Just my list though. :)

    btw... my top 3 worst were...

    And the Children Shall Lead
    Lights Of Zetar
    Turnabout Intruder

    Altrnative Fator, The Empath and And The Children Shall Lead.

    It was quite hard to choose though, I've probably watched TOS too often to see the true horrors lurking there..... :)

    The interesting thing is I've seen posts by people who count a lot of these episodes amongst their favourites and indeed, some of them are among my favourite third season episodes.

    Yes indeedy... hard to choose. People have things they dislike about an ep that's sometimes specific or sometimes over all. And I'm constantly surprised 'The Gamesters of Triskelion' never pops up on peoples lists... even mine! That one is just unwatchable. :lol:

    See, I can even get something out of all of those. Mostly cringes, but something.

    Alternative Factor, the Mark of Gideon, and The Lights of Zetar are just boring.

    Joe, cracking his knuckles and jumping for joy

    The logic behind "Gideon" is just patently dumb...a planet of severe, emergency overcrowding...and they have room for a life-size replica of a 1,000-foot-long Federation starship?

    Dumb.

    Toking off blunts on the Paramount lot and trying to find something to follow the Bele and Lokai episode..."Hey, I bet we can't come up with something more confusing and stupid!" :lol:

    The Melvin Belli/Gorgan one sucked and blew chunks even with new CGI effects. What a waste.

    If you CGIed the girls from that 'FOXY FANS' advert flashing over there to the right this ep wouldn't get much better.
