Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Here's an unauthorized compendium for Trekkers who are unafraid of pointing the finger at oversights, and who know it's great fun to find the sloppy mistakes (or cost-cutting cheating) in a show that takes itself very seriously.

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Scott Scheinhaus on December 22, 2001
Format: Paperback
If you are into nitpicking, this book is great. While reading it, I was able to remember most of the scenes that were discussed, but the best way to read this book is with the episode playing in the background. Some nits require that you freeze and rewind to catch it. Each episode review contains trivia questions, but they are hard, so dont feel bad if you get them wrong. Also, Season seven is not covered in this one. It is included in part 2. I recommend this for al Trekkers. This author has also come out with a Deep Space Nine book, and Original series book, and an X-files book, as well as a sequel to this one. It must be nice to make a living nitpicking TV episodes!

Format: Paperback
Fun! Fun! Fun! - Oh sure, there are those who enjoy watching Trek for the sake of
watching, but after about the 15th time you've seen Troi in those low-cut uniforms
or admired Data's Sherlock Holmes, you just have to find MORE in these episodes.
When you reach that point of Trek saturation - pull out this book (or the companion book
for Classic Trek) and crank up that VCR. You'll be amazed at what you've missed, or
maybe smug with what you've already noticed! Either way, you just can't lose! Buy
your set now & stun your friends & family with your astute observations during their next Trek rerun viewing

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Peter Ingemi VINE VOICE on October 14, 2003
Format: Paperback
Everything you never wanted to know about the first six seasons of Star Trek the Next Generation is listed in this book.
From the contradictory remarks by Worf concerning bathing, (how could they miss that, to classic lines like "He probably figures that we don't get to see a lot of handsome women out this way and someone like you might get a little more cooperation from me...He's probably right."
Farrand celebrates the fun lines, evaluates plots, throws heavy blows at things that offend him (particularly the message of one episode), and even finds one that he can't find anything wrong with.
Do you want to know which episodes I am referring to? You'll have to get the book. This is however for hardcore Star Trek TNG fans, casual fans may enjoy it and non-fans will declare, "get a life." but you know what. They don't have to buy the book.
Worth your money depending on which group you belong to.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By T. Schiller on August 5, 1998
Format: Paperback
I'm one of those people who picks up on continuity errors in movies and TV shows. I don't know how, but I catch some pretty odd ones. But with this book, Phil Farrand goes where no one has gone before. I don't know how the guy does it. Just make sure read the entry right at the beginning of the show so you can look for all the stuff. Some of it's hard to spot!

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Virginia Gilbert on June 10, 2002
Format: Paperback
This is one of the most gratifying books I have ever read. As a self-proclaimed grammar cop, it is great to know that someone is paying as much attention to detail as I do. I pull out the ol' Nitpicker's Guide every time I watch an episode of TNG, but I have also read it cover-to-cover about 5 times. I am absolutely amazed by the thoroughness of the author (as well as by the amount of free time he must have!) I love this book.

Format: Paperback
One of the only books to contain a complete review of each episode, instaed of a teaser. The technical nits can be very boring to read
