327: Their Intentions Were Good

6/9/2020
Finding the Highs in the Low, Season 1 Every rose has its thorn, and every season has its episodes that are, well, not as highly rated by fans. While there are usually good reasons why these episodes are poorly received, even the biggest clunkers have redeeming qualities. In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Joe Keegan, Amy Nelson, Pierre LaRocco, Kevin Scharf, and Ria Papageorgiou start a new series looking at the good that can be found in episodes that have been poorly reviewed.

They are Ria Papageorgiou, Kevin Scharf and Pierre LaRocco and this episode is their introduction. In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Joe Keegan and Amy...

Jack Crusher. Best friend to Captain Jean-Luc Picard, husband to Dr Beverly Crusher and father to Wesley Crusher. We only get to see Jack Crusher in a few short appearances; in one of which he's a hologram, another he's an hallucination and in the third he's dead. In "Family" we see a holographic Jack Crusher with a message for Wesley from when he was a baby. Then, in "Violations" we see Beverly's painful memory of visiting Jack in the morgue after Captain Picard had return his body to...

Aging and Death. Death is a natural part of life and an unavoidable consequence of aging, even in the 24th century. As time marches on, so must we. We have seen many characters prematurely age due to outside influences or grow old gracefully. We see one alien culture declare old age as a burden and set rituals for death while Klingons send their fallen warriors to the great Sto'Vo'Kor. In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Joe Keegan and Amy Nelson have the pleasure of welcoming Ria...

Favorite Badass Guinan Moments. Guinan first appeared at the start of the second season of The Next Generation and she quickly became a fan favorite character. Through appearances in twenty-eight episodes and two movies, Guinan dispensed important wisdom as Ten Forward's bartender while keeping the history of her long life mostly a mystery.

There have been many exoplanets depicted in every series, from familiar M-class planets like Vulcan and Betazed to gas giants to even more exotic planets. Over the course of seven seasons and four movies, The Next Generation introduced us to many amazing...
