Earl Grey : 195: Are We Going to Cure Riker?

"Shades of Gray" Rewrite.   The second season finale of The Next Generation, "Shades of Gray," is often considered to be one of the worst episodes of the show, if not one of the worst episodes in all of Star Trek. A writers' strike, a strained budget at the end of the season, and a showrunner on his way out combined for an episode notorious for being Star Trek's only clip show. In this episode of Earl Grey, host Justin Oser is joined by special guests Brandon-Shea Mutala (of Melodic Treks, Warp Five, and The Edge) and Star Trek author Una McCormack to do an episode rewrite of "Shades of Gray." They discuss what danger the crew should find, what the message of the episode should be, whether Dr. Pulaski and Dr. Crusher should team up together, and much more in their quest to improve upon the original episode.
