The episode of the X-Files that immediately followed the first movie and undid all the plot progress before the show's opening credits. That's when I gave up on the series.

I like both of those episodes, he said replying a comment from about seven months ago, but I hate "Stranger In A Strange Land" - the episode about where Jack got his tattoos. (Although, by all accounts, that episode was SO boring and pointless that it inspired Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse to force ABC to give them an end date so they wouldn't have to keep padding the seasons with meaningless filler episodes like that.)

I also hate the episode where Sawyer and Hurley track down an annoying frog, but it's also a Sayid flashback episode and has the first appearance of Michael Emerson, so it gets a pass.

Lost in general has not aged well for me. A friend was watching the series for the first time during the winter months and I caught a few episodes from each season. Nothing was very entertaining except for stuff from the first season (which was good but mostly made me annoyed at how poorly the show followed through on all that potential). I loved the show when it was on, but I don't think I'll ever watch it again.

A recent Worst Episode is the live 30 Rock from this past season. 30 Rock is a great comedy because it is so well written. When you throw that away and rely on guest stars it completely falls apart.

A lot of first- and second-season Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes stand out, including "Angel One", "The Last Outpost" and "Shades of Grey" (the clip episode that ended the second season, made necessary because of a writer's strike).

Deep Space Nine was a strong series, but "Let He Who Is Without Sin..." was dreadful.

It was a pretty pointless episode, but I counter with "Move Along Home" from season 1 where the crew has to play a real-life board game.

Dark Willow was fucking amazing. Yet, yeah minus those 6 or 7 episodes near the end, it was a giant waste of a season. Season five minus Dracula, Fool for Love and Body was a far worse season. It is amazing how bad some of the TNG episodes were that it made it to the way better season 3. The worst DS9 episode was "The sound of her voice." That was giant padding just to get the brilliant "Call to Arms" finale.

Speaking of Star Trek, Gamma Squad did a bracket to find the worst Star Trek episode. They choose "These Are The Voyages", the series finale of Enterprise. It beat out "Profit and Lace" in the bracket finals, aka the "Quark becomes a woman" episode.

Having never seen Enterprise and somehow forgetting that episode of DS9, I was going to go with the Voyager episode "Threshold".

I want to say that the worst episode of Star Trek is Sub Rosa--the one in which Beverley Crusher leaves Starfleet because the ghost who used to hang around with her grandmother is so good in bed. I think most of the evidence for that is right there in that sentence.

But I never watched Enterprise and I kind of don't count Voyager, which had some pretty terrible episodes before I stopped watching. (The 37's--where they find an old car floating in the void of space, many light years from Earth, and IT STARTS--was a pretty bad one.)

I'd put Our Man Bashir--the Holosuite James Bond pastiche--as my most disliked DS9.

Less said about it the better. It was a TNG episode more than an Enterprise episode.

Which was the episode where the guys ate worms or had them in their stomaches or whatever?

Yeah, that one.

TNG's Season 1 "Conspiracy" episode. That was one of the more graphically violent episodes of Trek there ever was. Sadly, it was never resolved as to who the homing message was supposed to alert. I have heard that some novels have established that the Trill and the parasites have a common ancestry or something.
