Wired had a list of Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes to watch in preparation/as background for the new Picard series that starts this week, so I ended up watching a bunch of them on my second monitor while I worked on my app over the weekend. I watch TNG when it first started (I remember watching the premier), but gave up on it before it ended (more, I think, because I was doing other things socially instead of watching it, whatever night it was on). I've seen various episodes in the meantime, but have never watched it all the way through like I have the other series.

These episodes were all, naturally, Picard-centric ones from across the seasons, a few I had seen and remember, some I have not or did not. My impression is that the later episodes got a little more into what I like about some of the other series, like continuing storylines, character progression, and a sense of time and history, rather than just episodic planet/situation of the week. Maybe I should watch the later seasons.
