    An honest, though sometimes painful list,

  • Eric Toombs

    As someone without time (or stomach lol) to separate the wheat from the chaff myself, I’m very thankful for this list. I hope you find the time to finish it. Please?…

    • Malachi Ward

      Thanks for checking out the sight Eric! We’re posting reviews of DS9 once a week. Slowly but surely….

      • Eric Toombs

        Awesome! Looking forward to it!

  • Xesthan Rikudo

    Thanks for these. I used your guide for the Next Generation and another for the rest of the episodes. I’ll do the same here when I get to watching it. It’s also fun to read the episode reviews. Keep it up!
