[TNG] Season 4, Episode 5: Remember MeRating: 3
“Remember Me” has a few things that push it to a 3. Mostly it does a good job of being spooky, and maintaining that simmering dread for a lot of the episode. It also focuses on Doctor Crusher in a way that is unfortunately uncommon on TNG, and McFadden shows that she’s more than capable of carrying episodes.
It’s simplistic and obvious set up is a big drawback, and Crusher’s fear of abandonment isn’t utilized as well as it could be, but we’re still giving it a 3.
