I'm watching the pilot episode and then the rest of season one with a critical eye. I've not seen most of these since they first aired. I recall some issues... I'll try to be nice and say what's good as well as what's stupid. So far, "Encounter at Farpoint" is rough, as most pilots are. I'm immediately reminded of how much I hated the music, all airy synth tones. Awful. Some of these musical cues sound like they were played by a high schooler. Introducing an omnipotent character at the five minute mark, hoo boy. Heavy-handed. The acting isn't bad though. De Lancie is good as Q. The character needed work but. The dialogue is full of easy homocentric enthusiasms, cliches, as is the story. But I go light on this because it has to establish a story, setting, introduce all the characters, and give them something to do. Not the worst of them all. It simply had to accomplish too much.
