 Some of the best Sci-Fi

| | See all iWatch's reviews (64)

Top 100 DVD Reviewer

The Next Generation is where the resurgence in Sci-Fi began, all those years ago in 1987. It is great to watch them again. There is absolutely no point in me talking about Star Trek, you will either know about it or not so I will talk briefly about this season.
There is nothing missing on the disks between this version and the full boxed versions.

The entire cast put in amazing performances and really make this series as good as it is.

This season is definitely better than the first, the show is really starting to find its feet and it shows.

The series is still in relatively early days at this time and progressing well, not as good as season 3 but still pretty good.

Star Trek: The Next Generation Season 2 (1988-1989) - ***
More consistent than the last, with some truly fantastic episodes. Sure the duds are still there but this is a great season. I just wish Pulaski had stayed.
The Child - ***
Stock 'domestic problems' episode.
Where Silence Has Lease - ****
Excellent, always refreshing to see the Enterprise out of it's depth.
Elementary, Dear Data - ****
Data becomes the character of Sherlock Holmes on the Holodeck. As fun as it sounds.
The Outrageous Okona - ***
Could be more outrageous, more like a poor eighties copy of Han Solo. But far more polite.
Loud As A Whisper - ****
Brilliant episode, not only do you get to see someone killed horribly with a phaser, but great story about a mute negotiator.
The Schizoid Man - ****
One of my favourites of the season. Great performance from William Morgan Sheppard and includes one of the hottest Vulcans ever.
Unnatural Selection - ****
Pulaski (Diana Muldaur) ages rapidly in this enjoyable episode. I always liked Pulaski and was sad when she was replaced by the return of the far blander Dr. Crusher.
A Matter Of Honor - ****
A classic Riker episode and brilliant fish-out-of-water story. Never get bored of Klingons.
The Measure Of A Man - *****
Easily the best of the season. Data is tried by Riker, defended by Picard. Wonderful performances all round. One of Trek's brightest hours.
The Dauphin - *
And now one of it's darkest. Quite possibly the worst episode ever.
Contagion - ***
Decent 'running out of time til we all die' episode.
The Royale - ****
Chilling bit of sci-fi here. Data, Worf and Riker beam to a remote casino.
Time Squared - ****
Two Picards? Can't go wrong.
The Icarus Factor - ***
A crowd pleaser; Worf has a painful ritual, Riker's Dad...
Pen Pals - **
Slushy and sentimental waffle. Data forms a bond with a child alien.
Q Who? - *****
Meet the Borg.
Samaritan Snare - **
Meet the Pakleds. And Geordi. Both are pretty irritating.
Up The Long Ladder - **
Bizarre episode in which some crazy farmers dispute (peacefully) with some richer folk. As fun as it sounds.
Manhunt - ***
Another Dixon Hill episode. Quite funny (Mr. Homn!) but not much going on.
The Emissary - ****
More Klingons and some really good Holodeck fights. Cracking.
Peak Performance - *****
Fantastic guest performance from Glenn Morshower with pacy story and amusing Data subplot.
Shades Of Gray - *
A clip show. And a bad one.

 Dissapointing end of series

You don't really need a review for this DVD, I mean come on every galaxy has seen this show.

Series 1 was like an old and familar friend, but I must admit series 2 was mainly new and exciting.

I am just watching the end of series 2, and I must admit it is pretty dissapointing compared to the end of series 1, it is just flashbacks from previous episodes.

Sadly the most gorgeous of the women get's killed in this series and for the good part Q only appears once and that is to introduce the borg, so am looking forward to the next 5 series and even though its 3:30am I shall probaly put on series 3 after this but even though I'm not a trekkie, it is enjoyable watching this series again.

 Great Entertainment

Season 2 of TNG starts off rather dull and slowly with the not so interesting episode "The Child" and admittedly does take its time to get up to speed with an abundance of Data heavy episode which depending on your feelings for the character may or may not be a bad thing. New to the ship is Dr. Katherine Pulaski (Diana Muldaur) a character that proves hit or miss amongst fans, long live Beverly Crusher! Also new to the Enterprise is the mysterious bartender of Ten Forward, Guinan played brillaintly by none other than Whoopi Goldberg. I find Guinan to be a very enjoyable and deep character.

By "A Matter of Honor" (Episode 8) the season is up to Warp 9! The stories become much more entertaining and suspenseful. Highlights include "The Measure of A Man", "Contagion", "Time Squared", "The Icarus Factor", "Samaritan Snare" and "The Emissary". Special Mention must go to the best episode of the season "Q Who?" which introduces Star Treks best villian, the Borg!

The shortest TNG season (just 22 episodes as appose to the normal 26) is closed rather inadequetly with the poor "Shades of Gray" which is a glorified Clip Show of the first 2 seasons, apparently the episode was rushed due to a writers strike at the time, this clearly shows.

Overall there is plenty here for the trekkies as well as enough excitement to convert new viewers just be vigilant of the slow start and the weak end of the season, the juicy bits are definately in the middle.

Engage!

 More like Season 1 and 1/2

One or two episodes in this season are fun (Elementary dear Data), some are poor (Shades of gray), some are bizzare (Where silence has lease), and some you wonder just what exactly were the writers of the show smoking (Up the long ladder)!? However two stand out episodes are Measure of a man and the excellent Q Who. This season is still worth owning however, especially at the price it is and by season 3 the show begins to get into its element.
