The following post will contain the list of the episodes in season 3. Peruse that list and count the number of episodes you think are good--not great episodes, but episodes that don't find you flipping the channel after a few minutes. Count them up and give me the results in the poll.

Now for the round 1.5: Give me nominations for the best of this season. The more nominations an episode receives, the more likely it will be in the next round.

Best episode of Season 3: The Best of Both Words, Part One.
There are many good episodes in Season 3, this is probably my favorite season all around, so I won't list the "good" episodes.

Lot of great episodes in Season 3. Yesterday's Enterprise, Best of Both Worlds and Sins of the Father were all great. The Survivors was one of the first TNG episodes to hook me onto the show. Deja Q was a lot funnier than it had any right to be.

Some bad ones though, like A Matter of Persepctive and The Price

Hey, any more votes? Considering the poll results, I'll probably take four episodes from this seasons.
