TNG Season 1, Episode 3 (Netflix: S1 E4): The Naked Now
Generally I like seeing cool characters sort through problems, not cool characters acting like idiots while a giant glowing rock slowly drifts towards them. The episode is filled with moments you will wish you had never seen, and bad jokes, thus it gets a 1.
Characters seem to use a lot more slang when they’re around Data
Chief engineer MacDougal?
Cool hair, superman
Yar talks about her tragic upbringing of escaping rape gangs, but then they clearly are trying to make this scene funny. Really it’s only gross
This episode tries to show us how smart Wesley is, but it mainly just makes everyone else look dumb
Yeah, the writers kind of try to explain how Data could get drunk, but we all know it was because they thought it would be funny
At around 33:50 Picard makes a weird noise
Stay tuned, we’ll be discussing this episode more next week in our “Second Episode Conundrum” article.
