The Next Generation
I know it was cheesy and all, but I was really happy to see the few scenes in this episode where Marina was able to do something besides be calm and concerned.
"Skin of Evil"
I am a Tasha fan (okay, that's another thread) so I love anything that allowed Denise to show off her ability to get angry. (Let's face it, there were only so many emotions Tasha portrayed - that's why Denise left.) Also, scenes where Tasha is the center of attention... that sort of thing. Hey, she was only there for a short (crappy) season. So this episode should be self explanatory.
What? This is a fan favorite... so why put it on this list? I'm a sucker for time travel episodes, and I didn't like this one. I only watch it for the return of - you guessed it - Tasha Yar. I figure, hey, that's kind of a guilty pleasure.
"The Quality of Life"
Data is my very favorite character (to put it mildly), so any episode that focuses on him is cool by me - even if the plot line is shaky. Speaking of...
Not only do I like to see what it would be like if Data took a mate, but I also like to see Brent get to stretch a little. Even though most of this episode makes me cringe, I treasure the moment when he gets up off the couch and turns around to say "perhaps there is something wrong with YOU!"
"The Naked Now"
Title sounds good to someone who hasn't seen it, huh? Um, no. I like Data, I like Tasha... why do you think I like this episode...? "We are more alike than unalike, my dear Captain." THUD.
Introduces Lore. Two Brents. Opportunity for Brent to speak with contractions. I like it. Wish he would have shot Wesley, though...
No one seems to like this one, but it has Data and Time Travel... what's not to like?
"Ship In A Bottle"
I liked being tricked. This episode was better the first time I saw it, but it still pleases me to see Broccoli say, at the end, "Computer, end program."
A little romance between a Frakes role and Troi and then a little more love from Riker at the end there... not to mention that there are two of em! Way better than in "Time Squared" when there was two Picards.
A look at one version of the future - albeit an alien child's version.
Star Trek VII: Generations
This one is actually my favorite. I know you guys are TOS fans and I haven't seen it (yet), but I liked this movie in spite of the *supposedly* unworthy death Kirk was given. This seems to be the major gripe with the fans (not to mention the discontinuity with the TNG episode "Relics"), but it really doesn't bother me. I think that it was befitting of what Kirk stood for and that we should be lucky at all that Berman wrote ANY part of the original cast into the script.
Okay, so it's all TNG... shoot me. I haven't seen much of anything else (as I have explained many times in this forum before).
What about you guys? What are your Guilty Pleasures?
