    I noticed an ad for TNG on CBS Action, it's starting up again (not sure if they showed it before?) towards the end of July. Looking forward to this, it's not been on much, sick of Voyager. It's never off the air these days.

    Indeed. Also;

    Where No One Has Gone Before
    Where Silence Has Lease
    Time Squared

    All noteable pre season 3 episodes.

    There was some horrific stuff alright, it's worth muddling through it though. As you mentioned, from season 3 onwards it finds its feet.

    I'll still watch them all though, better than the constant re runs of DS9 on sky.....

    Much the same. Season 1 & 2 were feet finding excercises...from Season 3 onwards DS9 had some outstanding stuff. Sky though, well that's different.

    Lots of God awful acting so far, Troi in Farpoint was funny to watch. But still enjoying it in a nostalgic way

    She came extremely close to being fired, in season 1

    Now that would have been some loss to the manufacturers of lycra......;)

    This bit is on wiki
    Initially, the writers found it difficult to write for Troi and even left her out of four of the first season episodes. Sirtis felt her job was in jeopardy after the first season but was overjoyed when Gene Roddenberry took her aside at Jonathan Frakes's wedding and told her that the season two premiere episode, "The Child", would center on Troi.[8]

    Season 1 is pretty weak, Tasha being killed by mud is on the way, the episode where they were all randy - was strange, loved the Picard and Beverly foreplay in a 'you know you should'ent like but there is a certain morbid fascination' way

    I love CBS Action. A cheesy TOS episode where thoughts become real followed by the even cheesier TNG episode concerning the planet of the Edo. I love it when they go into the hall room where there are a lot semi naked people hanging around for very specific reason, the ambient noises, they're hilarious, you hear a woman groaning and then this guy giving a "Herculean" smug laugh, and it repeats every 5 seconds, the exact same sounds and they could get away with it because it was 1987 and audiences weren't sophisticated back then, supposedly.

    This was on last week, can't believe I missed it all these years!

    I've been watching it on CBS. Love the interesting bits of inside information Raules Davies give in the clips before it starts.
