Next Generation Favourite Episodes - Season Five
Well, we're now over half-way through the mighty Next Generation's run and even before I started watching the fifth season again I suspected it would be the most challenging one yet to whittle down to five episodes. This indeed proved to be the case - I was even forced to count the mid-season two-parter as one selection - but that at least demonstrates the increasingly splendid quality on offer!
There's also an interesting episode called 'Conundrum' which I wanted to include below which sees the Enterprise crew all knocked out by some zappy beam. When they come around they have no memory, obviously! Much to my amusement, Worf assumes he's in charge while Riker enjoys the company of both Troi and Ro who are each trying to out-shag the other. Most startling to us viewers, however, is the appearance of a new First Officer on the bridge - Commander MacDuff - bossing underlings around! Anyway, the five episodes I did plump for are these:
Redemption Part 2 (Episode 1)
Disaster (Episode 5)
Unification (Episodes 7 & 8)
I, Borg (Episode 23)
The Inner Light (Episode 25)
Look out for my Season Six picks soon!
