[TNG] Lonely Among Us

TNG Season 1, Episode 7 (Netflix: S1 E8): Lonely Among Us

Rating: 2

Sometimes writers are good at making you eager to find out what happens next. In other instances writers can make the journey entertaining even if the ending is expected. In this episode the audience has a pretty good idea of what is going on and we are just frustrated and waiting until the characters figure it out. It’s not all bad though- Picard is in it.

Notes:

Snake creatures!

Worf does his best Beavis impersonation.


Somewhere under all that, there is a Marc Alaimo

I think the producers had a meeting and decided Crusher needed to look like a ninny.

How many different kinds of chief engineers do they have?

Yar and Riker don’t have the same sense of humor.

See!                   …I must be really bored

This is turning into a murder mystery. I know because Data has a pipe now.

It was the electricity! Oh right, we already knew that a long time ago.

What? One of the snake creatures may have been murdered? Ah, the old end-with-a-murder gag.

Troi thinks it’s funny.

    “It’s not all bad though- Picard is in it.”

    Is there such a thing as a Picardless episode of TNG?

      No 🙂 but I guess what I meant was that Picard was cool in this episode

    I never realized before how many Chief Engineers they had the 1st season. What exactly was Geordi’s job before his promotion? “Yeah, Geordi, just sit here and look at stuff for us…”

      Haha, yeah basically that’s all he did

    Oh joy, another sentient gas cloud episode. -_-‘
    And Worf gets Worfed for (I think) the first time. 🙂
    BTW: There should be a “Worf gets owned” tag.

    In retrospect, I’d hoped they would’ve fleshed out the Snake Alien vs Mongoose (I guess) Alien backstory.
    But, nah, let’s just waste two character designs for a B-plot of a gas cloud episode.

    I was mainly distracted by Troi’s boobage…
