We’ve been slowly making our way through the Remastered episodes of Season 1 of Next Gen. Its pretty much a thing in my house, what with our having seen the whole series at least twice through now, that the show only gets consistently good halfway through Season 3.
But oh my is it hilarious to watch Season 1. Its just so hokey and ridiculous and I love it~
We watched Haven tonight, aka the first episode that Lwaxana Troi shows up. So I pretty much spent the whole time cackling away. It manages to have soap opera levels of melodrama, what with a sulking Will and a stiff, overacting Deanna (she’s just so stilted and formal compared to later, ESPECIALLY with her mother) - but Lwaxana gliding around being fabulous, and Data being intrigued by everything, made it worth watching.
And Deanna called Riker Bill - bahahahahaha. Pure gold~ (Or should that be Pure gold-pressed Latinum?)
