The best season of Star Trek: The Next Generation
Colin Neal | Reading, Berkshire. England United Kingdom | 03/10/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Now this is where it gets interesting! After the shortened and varied second season, The Next Generation finally gets going in the third season. Not only is the writing brilliant but the production values have had a shot in the arm. The revised title sequence is much stronger and the title music is re-mixed. The entire ship looks and sounds better too, with the new uniforms with the collars (much better). A new director of photography was brought whose lighting technique allowed them to get rid of that "this is obviously filmed in a studio" look when creating planet side sequences. This season also has some of the best scores to accompany the series before it became a constant rehash of the same orchestral sequences later on in the programme. Ron Jones does a particularly excellent job, especially with "The Best of Both Worlds" and newcomer Jay Chattaway's score to "Tin Man" turned a mediocre episode into something more emotional.This season shines with great episodes such as The Enemy (Romulans!), The Defector (real spy thriller stuff), The Hunted, The High Ground (terrorist episode). There are however 2 stunners: "Yesterday's Enterprise" and "The Best of Both Worlds." Alternative timelines and the Borg have always made some of the best episodes - Yesterday's Enterprise gives Tasha Yar a chance to return for an episode where the Federation is still at war with the Klingons. The Best of Both Worlds is the high point of the entire series - great story, great effects, great music, and that feeling of "they can't do that" when the "To be continued...." line appeared on the screen. Great stuff.Episode List:Evolution

TNG comes roaring alive in the third season
Joanna Daneman | Middletown, DE USA | 06/21/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"We have a theory at home that it takes until the third season for shows like TNG, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, to really come alive and get the jitters out. They seem to need that amount of time to get good cast interaction and to rid the scripts of all kinds of bad mistakes. Well, almost all bad mistakes. The Ferengi still cropped up after the second season; without a doubt they are the most annoying race Star Trek ever created, making even "Q" look adorable.The Third Season of Star Trek Next Generation really showed us what Picard and his crew were capable of. This DVD is worth it for just a few of the episodes such as "Yesterday's Enterprise" which is a perennial winner in "vote for your favorite" polls. The development of Data as more than a circuit-filled Pinocchio is welcome and really set the stage for the later seasons. But I love the last episode "Best of Both Worlds I" most of all. I was totally blown away by this episode, some of the most exciting science fiction to hit the small screen ever. It always amazes me how this show progress from some real blunders in the first two seasons (Troi's bad hair and worse accent, that episode where Tasha Yar has a cat fight, complete with claws to earn some vaccine, puh-leeze!) The third season takes all the promise of the first and second season (and there were many bright spots) and totally delivers. Great stuff.Episode list:

The measuring stick for the rest of the series

"Is this the same TNG? Wow, so much so that I think fans often look back at season 3 as what propelled the show to its legendary status. Lets review the changes: first, it appears that many of the officers get new quarters. Data's quarters in seasons 1 and 2 resemble a receiving room in an airport hangar; here he and everyone else get really nice, spatious living areas. The uniforms have been mentioned by a number of people: they go from tight stretched, peel-off-to-undress-looking T-shirts and tights to collared, sweatshirt-resembling uniforms without that annoying seam down the middle of the chest. Now there is a place for command rank pips (there's a 1st season episode where Picard's pips are bunched together at one end and spread out at the other end!). There is a new and better title sequence. The crew begin to settle into their positions and pesonalities as well. Troi is more at ease, her empathic powers more even and toned down. Geordi, perhaps my favorite of the characters, settles into his chief of engineering position for good (in season 1, you never knew what the crew would be doing each episode - Data might be chief of security and Worf the transporter chief). Q is back and isn't so malevolent as in the 1st and 2nd seasons; he becomes more of a trickster character from here on through Voyager. Riker and Picard are more trusting of each other, and thank goodness Dr. Crusher is back to stay! Why didn't Dr. Pulaski work out? Because she was supposed to be like Dr. McCoy. Two things are wrong with that: no one could ever be like Dr. McCoy, and the restriction banning any personal conflict between characters was still in place then. That leads me to say as well that what helped the show this season more than anything was the stability in the front office. The new staff shifted focus from quasi political stuff to harder science fiction. The "We're perfect in the 24th century" thing is vitually non existant from here on out too, or at least its not as in your face. Starfleet indeed takes on more of a military feel (why else would a ship have multiple phaser banks and 150 photon torpedoes?) from the Picard attitude of "Oh no, we're not the military!" in season 2. This is all why Voyager is such a favorite of mine - it's a little more wild, willing to do stuff you would never have seen in TNG. There aren't any real clunker episodes in the third season; it gets off to a bit of a slow start, but those first several episodes are very focused and have a lot of dramatic quality. "Sarek," "Allegiance," "The Enemy," "The Defector," "Sins of the Father," "The Offspring," and "The Best of Both Worlds, part I" are top notch in one of TNG's top notch seasons. We learn much about Worf as an individual in "The Enemy," including his prejudices. Worf fans will love it as well as "Sins of the Father." Action/suspense fans will enjoy "Booby Trap," "The High Ground," and "Yesterday's Enterprise." Drama critics will go wild over "Sarek," one of the finest actor's scripts to date. There is a lot in season 3; I recommend it highly. For those who haven't seen these box sets yet, they're stunning. The picture quality of these episodes is far above and beyond anything you've seen on the VHS versions."
