As a child, in the 1980's, I can remember my dad being very excited about this new Star Trek series. He had grown up watching the original series & was (still is) an avid sci-fi fan. I was a little young to appreciate TNG during its first few seasons but as I got older I became hooked.
This series is, far & away, the best of the Star Treks. I used to watch the original Star Trek re-runs that were aired, late at night, in the early 1990's. That was a good show, for its time, & I really enjoyed all the the motion pictures. The other attemps (Deep Space 9 & Voyager) were lackluster, at best. I watched them in the begining but quickly lost interest. I don't mention Enterprise because I haven't really watched it & I'm just not interested.
TNG had such a great cast & the storylines were always fun & engaging. There's just something about this show that keeps me coming back. I know I've probably seen every episode, at least once, & I still love watching the re-runs whenever I find them on TV.
