This is a review of the nineteenth episode of Season 4 of TNG, “The Nth Degree.” This is an important episode to me because it is the 363rd episode of Trek series I’ve watched since beginning this Boldly Going project. Not counting the first season of Star Trek: Discovery, there were 725 episodes of […]Read more "|||[Boldly Going]||| Star Trek: The Next Generation – Episode 4.19 “The Nth Degree” \\\Project 50% Completed///"
I’m writing this review not because this was a spectacular episode of TNG (it’s not), nor because it’s a bad episode (it’s not that, either). On my personal 5-star rating system, in which 5 stars is apparently almost unattainable (I’m a tough grader) and 3 stars would be considered an “average” episode, one that […]Read more "|||[Boldly Going]||| Star Trek: The Next Generation: Episode 4.17 “Night Terrors”"
When I began the Boldly Going project, in which I will watch every minute of televised Star Trek produced to-date, my plan was to post reviews of each season and then of individual episodes that I thought stood out from the rest. I meant this in a positive way, and I’ve posted reviews of […]Read more "|||[Boldly Going]||| Star Trek: The Next Generation: Episode 4.10 “The Loss”"
“Best of Both Worlds” will always be a special TNG story for me. I know, it’s a two-parter that ended the series’ third season on a dramatic cliffhanger and started off the fourth with a bang, and multitudes of Trekkies hold these episodes in high regard. I’m not saying I’m special. But, “Both Worlds” […]Read more "|||[Boldly Going]||| Star Trek: TNG: Episodes 3.26 and 4.1 “Best of Both Worlds, Parts 1 and 2” – a review"
So, is the third season of TNG better than the first two? I think so. Dr. Beverly Crusher is back on the Enterprise in Season 3, and Dr. Pulaski is gone forever. While I appreciated Pulaski more the second time around, she was no Beverly, and Dr. Crusher’s return immediately brings the series back […]Read more "|||[Boldly Going]||| Star Trek: The Next Generation: Season 3 – a review"
“Yesterday’s Enterprise” is a TNG third season episode that deserves honorable mention. It is the first episode of that series that I rated as high as 4-stars (out of 5) since Season 2’s “The Measure of a Man,” which earned all 5 stars from me. On my personal rating scale, 4 stars means “very […]Read more "|||[Boldly Going]||| Star Trek: The Next Generation: Episode 3.15 “Yesterday’s Enterprise”"
My second viewing of Season One of Star Trek: The Next Generation was an eye-opening experience. Simply put: it was crap. Hey, I’m as big a TNG apologist as anyone, and, while I accept that there were many events in the first season that remain important to the mythos of TNG, such as Tasha Yar’s […]Read more "Boldly Going: Star Trek:TNG: Season 2: a review"
Chaos On The Bridge is a documentary currently available streaming on Netflix as I’m typing this. Written, directed and narrated by William Shatner, the original Captain Kirk, this hour-long documentary is about the turbulent first years of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Documentaries don’t fill much of my viewing time in my on-going pursuit of […]Read more "Chaos On The Bridge: a Star Trek:TNG documentary review"
Star Trek: The Next Generation: Episode 2.9 “The Measure of a Man” is the first perfect episode of TNG that I’ve watched. This comes on the heels of Episode 2.8 “A Matter of Honor” which I considered the first “very good” episode. I’ve been grading these episodes on a 5-point scale as I’ve watched them. […]Read more "|||[Boldly Going]||| Star Trek: the Next Generation: Episode 2.9 “The Measure of a Man”"
When I started my Boldly Going Star Trek project back in January, it was never my intention to write reviews of individual episodes, unless it was a particularly important episode earning distinction. Having been through the first season of Star Trek:The Next Generation once before, I thought I might have to write a review of […]Read more "Boldly Going: TNG Episode 2.8 “A Matter of Honor”: a review"
