Re: TNG S3: The Bonding

If you overlook the goofy alien aspect of this episode, you can appreciate the character development shown here. Picard has come full circle from the awkward encounters with children in Season 1 to his touching "no one is alone on the Enterprise" comment. Wesley and Beverly really show their human side as they are still dealing with the death of Jack. Worf shows the touch of fatherhood that we will see again with Alexander. I appreciate that they dealt with a real issue of losing a loved one in the line of duty, even if other parts of the episode were weak.

Re: TNG S1: 11001001


Agree that this is one of the first episodes where TNG found its stride. Characters are settled into to their roles (we don't see Geordi yelling "whoopee" like in Episode 1). Dialogue is very well-done, especially interactions on the holodeck. Data showed leadership. Wesley did not grate on my nerves. Deanna didn't say stupidly obvious things like a weatherman telling us it's raining outside. The set on the starbase looked real, and not like the horribly fake planets with the florescent-looking skyline and no depth.

The story was interesting, but not 4 star material. I was somewhat bored. And Starfleet let a multitrillion dollar ship be taken over with no safeguards whatsoever. Riker happened to find the file at the last minute as if they left it on the desktop, and Picard just happened to be there and realized they needed 2 terminals. I can turn off my brain for scifi stretches of the imagination, but not to this extent.

This doesn't compare to any of the great episodes in later seasons.
