I've been working my way through the Greatest Gen podcast as well and found it very entertaining. The appearance of Kevin Uxbridge in random episodes makes it difficult to keep composed on my work commute.

Just spotted that now in ep 5 where they're all stuck in nowhere-imagination-land

They're onto DS9 now (nearing the end of Season 2) but, start at the start, they have already covered the entirety of TNG.

It's a very light-hearted look at the series, "from two guys who are a little bit embarrassed to have a Star Trek podcast", and I found it a whole lot of fun.

Even if you're not doing a run-through at the same time... It's good fun

The earliest I find here (TNG) is from Season 2 ...

Did they do a run through on season 1 too ?

I know it's probably not your video but that's Gul Macet, not Gul Dukat.

They did. Not sure why it's not listed on their site but if you search for the podcast on your podcast app you should find it.

This link might work better to get the full show - https://pca.st/greatgen

I found Tim Lynch's episode reviews to be useful companions... they start mid season 2.

Someone would have made way at end of Season 1...

Bizarrely in the original casting it was supposed to be Sirtis playing Tasha Yar!

It's a pity she wasn't fired, her character brought down most episodes and I'm not surprised writers didn't know what to do with her.

Weird to read Rodenberry of all people quoted remarking there were 'one too many women', wondering what he meant by that as on the face of it, it sounds contradictorily regressive.

Not sure what to make it myself but I think there was also competition between Yar and Worf for screen time... Yar was security chief but then what would Worf do on the bridge.

And long term they saw more potential stories from a Klingon on board.
So it was species-ist
