  • Rip Van Riker?....

    .... Few Season 4 episodes of "Star Trek: The Next Generation" are not worth a look and "Future Imperfect" is very enjoyable although not one of the greatest episodes of the season. In some ways, "Future Imperfect" is a preview to the far superior Riker-centered psychologically- angled plot "Frame of Mind" in Season 6: as (without giving anything away) Riker's world is turned upside down in a similar way. But there are a number of thrilling twists and turns that make "Future Imperfect" a very fun episode - but it is more interesting during the first viewing and does not hold up very well during subsequent viewings.
