Oh, God, "Up the Long Ladder" still gives me nightmares.

I can't watch the vids (still on stupid slow dial-up), but, oh, yeah, there was a lot of stupid in TNG. A *lot*. I was just rewatching seasons 1 & 2 in prep for possibly doing the sequel to Pulse, and Jesus God, I had to ignore a shitload of STOOPID that didn't completely register the first time around, because I was besotted and therefore had the selective lenses firmly clipped onto my glasses.

That cloning episode mentioned in one of the comments (Up The Long Ladder) really annoyed me in a lot of ways, but my impulse is mostly to fix it with a follow-up piece of fiction.

Also, Deanna Troi. Poor useless character.

Despite that, y'know, I actually had a blast rewatching most of those episodes? I have no idea why. Maybe 'cause it was colored by my simultaneously looking through every scrap of art/fiction/toons/art ref scrap, etc from Pulse and the unpublished stuff by me and Marty and Melody and Susi--it generated a lot of nostalgic squee.

This fails because they fail to mention that later season episode that stole its entire plot from an Anne Rice novel. And sucked.

What, "Troi's Punishment"?

I just looked it up. "Sub Rosa." The one with the ghost lover in Beverly's family.

Oh, God, that fucking piece of shit!

Er, I mean, yes, I recall the episode.

I can still taste the alkaline flavor of my embarrassment as I watched it.

The only story they could think of for a female officer was a shitty, shitty, shitty piece of Gothic shit that was shitty. Shitheads.

And yet every time I wonder why the HELL I loved this show so much I remember Patrick Stewart.

End of "Best of Both Worlds, Pt 1." Killer.
