Unsung Episodes Season 5.
Every season of The Next Generation has episodes that get overlooked or ignored. Well, not here and not today! Most fans will quickly identify "Darmok", "Cause and Effect", and "The Inner Light" as being their favorite episodes from season five. So, if we set those episodes aside, which other episodes should we celebrate and recognize from this season?
In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Amy Nelson, Richard Marquez, and Justin Oser list their three unsung episodes from season five. Each host puts up a good defense on why their chosen episodes should be among the fan favorites or at least viewed with a fresh perspective devoid of preconceived perceptions.
Unsung Episodes is a series that will continue through 2017 highlighting each season in honor of the thirty-year anniversary of TNG.
