Re: TNG S5: Darmok

I'm in the overrated camp. The story as a whole (not just the metaphors) is ridiculous. I don't mind Trek getting a bit silly but this was suspension of belief destroyed territory.

Also something that grated on me about this alien race is they made zero effort to understand the enterprise crew. Self obsessed or what.

Only Picard's performance saves it somewhat.

Re: TNG S4: Remember Me

After seeing this episode for the first time yesterday it has become one of my favourite TNG episodes so far.

I love how spooky this episode feels, and the dialogue between crusher and the computer towards the end was spectacular. It's a trippy pure sci-fi episode, and those types tend to tick all the right boxes for me.

I agree with other commenters that the appearance of The Traveller was a downer. Turning the show from technobabble to magic. Wesley Crusher closing his eyes and doing god knows what felt something more akin to Star Wars. It completely broke my suspension of disbelief. So it loses a whole star for that.

Still the rest was good enough to not fall over just because The Traveller was there.

Re: TNG S2: Up the Long Ladder

First time I've quit out of an episode before the end. That says a lot for how bad this is.
