i feel yerr pain, been there done that. just have to trust n have faith. i gurantee u will learn to love those same "borring" eps 2nd or 3rd time around. all that is just character dev, which does go on a bit long. soon as **** starts hitting fan with dominion, it gets really cool really fast, n keeps getting better. stick with it.

like most trek shows, it takes a few seasons to get decent

once they abandon the 'soap opera on a space station' concept and switch to the dominion war it starts to shape up

I thought DS9 was a little tough to begin enjoying in S1, mainly b/c the characters are so different, there are quite a few more alien main characters, and it departs from the standard TNG format of "Enterprise shows up to solve problem [...] problem gets solved, Federation wins"

S1 is mainly an introduction of a lot of the characters and various **** going on near the station (Bajor, the Cardassians, etc).

S2 is a little better, longer storylines, more interesting characters.

S3 is where the series takes off. Wont' spoil anything, but after that point I'd say it's either my fav Star Trek series or tied w/ TNG. By season 8, you're rooting for almost all the characters; they did a great job of giving nearly everyone a compelling story.

ds9 is my favorite show of all time


like TNG, DS9 is horse**** in the early seasons. there is only 1 episode in season 1 that is good, and it's "duet". when i convert people i go pilot ep --> duet --> cardassians --> and then go to "the maquis" and watch every episode onwards. every person i've funneled through this path liked or loved the show to various degrees.

the widely accepted turning point for the show is in the season 3 two-parter improbable cause/the die is cast, but it's worth watching duet and parts of season 2 to really get full context.

enjoy

Well, the writing was kind of dog**** in the first season. It takes a while for it to find it's footing.

Especially Cisco's character. The guy's not a very good actor, and it really shows in the first season, it shows up later too, but again the series as a whole kind of finds it's way as you progress.

What the show does really, however, is that the characters are showed in a variety of situations. In some episodes you'll be rooting for a specific character, or even laughing about something silly that happened, and then you'll be faced with some awful aspect of them.

For me that's where the show really shined, the characters start to feel real because you can identify them as being flawed people, just like anyone else. I don't think there's a single character in the series that you won't find making a moral decision that feels morally wrong somehow.

DS9 is definitely a slow burn. Like Grungir said, once he shaves his head it starts picking up from there. The Dominion stuff is pretty cool. Lots of space battle ****. Garak is a bad ass mofo too.

It gets better when you realize that it isn't B5 and you switch to B5.

damn i had fake HaPpY in my betting pool as the first one to bring B5 up in a DS9 thread. both shows are great. why is it always B5 people crying about DS9 and never vice versa?
