See-It or Skip-It

Episode 74: See-It or Skip-It: TNG Season 1

MAKE IT SO…OR DON’T!

Ep 74 - TNG Season1
It’s been a long time since we delved into a season of Star Trek and gave our thoughts as to whether you should See It or Skip It, so we are back with the next round of SIoSI and TNG Season 1!  Will we appreciate failed Holodeck programs?  Will we ridicule giant jellyfish space creatures?  Tune in and find out!

We are joined by our good friend and third or fourth best admin (out of 3) from our Official Facebook Group Camp Khitomer, Mr. Daniel Garcia.  Dan is going to do his best to keep us in check and stay on target with our thoughts on all 26 episodes of Season 1!  You may actually be surprised at the results as we tally up the scores of which episodes to watch, and which episodes to send out of an airlock!

Plus we will let you know about our good friends over at FanSets and their special pin which will only be available at Mission:NY this coming weekend!!

Episode 58: See-it or Skip-It

VOYAGER: SEASON ONE

See-it or Skip-It: Voyager, Season 1This week, we take a look at the first season of Star Trek: Voyager!

It’s no secret that Bill hasn’t been the biggest fan of Voyager, and he’s even attempted his own “Voyager Challenge” to finally get through the series.  We thought it might be easier to discuss each season and decide which episodes that you should watch and which ones you can safely avoid in a new feature called, “See-It or Skip-It” and we’ll take on the freshman season of Voyager first!

Debuting January 16, 1995, Voyager held great promise as the first Star Trek series to launch a television network. Its first season had sixteen episodes and we’ll take a look at each one telling you if you should See-It (because it truly matters in the overall arc, there is important character development, or it’s just a phenomenal episode) or whether you should Skip-It (because it doesn’t impact the overall story, it’s a weak stand-alone episode, or it’s just flat out bad).

Which Season 1 episodes will we love? Which ones will we agree on, and WHY? Eventually, we’ll do this for every season of every series, but we start today in the Delta Quadrant where we’ll be keeping a strict accounting of the photon torpedoes and paying close attention to the level of suffering endured by Ensign Harry Kim. (We’re willing to bet it’s more than Miles O’Brien, but time will tell!)

Plus, we’ll talk about the latest news in the Star Trek universe from our friends at TrekNews.net, and don’t forget about our iTunes Review Giveaway where you could win a $25 gift card to Amazon.com just for writing a review!

It’s Episode 58 and you most definitely should NOT “Skip-It!”

Spock's Brain - Available at FiveYearMission.net
