This is a bit of a cheat because I’m copying and pasting from day 4. I was going to do my favourite TNG episode, but it says favourite episode of favourite show, so here it is.

DO NOT WATCH THE INCLUDED VIDEO CLIP IF YOU’VE NEVER SEEN THE SHOW. IT CONTAINS INFORMATION THAT SOME COULD CONSIDER SPOILERS.

My favourite episode of my favourite show is;

Again, by a matter of degrees, this is my favourite episode of DS9. I don’t agree with the oft repeated criticism that DS9 is too far removed from Gene Roddenberry’s vision. I’ve always thought it was a realistic vision, where people are striving to achieve the goals of the federation ( Roddenberry’s vision ).

I’ve included a clip that’s a perfect example of what DS9 was. I also think, that as much as it was an ensemble show, it rested on the performance of Avery Brooks. The show would never have worked if everybody else sucked, but the Captain carries the show, and boy, did Brooks ever carry the show. This clip showcases his talent, as well as explaining an important plot development of the show. You also get to see some of the other characters that we all love.
Watch and enjoy.

IT’S AWESOME.
