Most hated episode of all time.

Postby Mark » Wed May 12, 2010 7:00 pm

Now we hit the flip side. There is that ONE episode that no matter how much we love Trek, we just can't stomach watching again, because for some reason, we friggin' hate it.

Thus begins the new poll series.

Standard rules apply. One nomination per person, but you can second whatever you'd like. For this series I'd ask (but not require) a short explination WHY it is your most hated episode.

And the Children Shall Lead...

A truly awful episode. First we have children being a subject of the show. And since every child actor I've ever seen has made me want to punch them, you can probably imagine how I felt about having a whole gang of them invade the Enterprise. An utterly awful plot, awful villains, and some serious WTF moments. At least Way To Eden can be entertaining if you treat it as a "so bad it's good" sort of thing.

What's the name of the episode with Abe Lincoln floating in space?

Thanks Seafort.

Yes, I'd have to nominate The Savage Curtain. And second This Way to Eden.

IDK, "Catspaw" had all the stupid, and worse production values.
