I think this is my favorite episode. It starts out with a sleazy Riker who picks up a virus (the game) from some woman of loose morals, and then works on infecting the whole crew, who really REALLY enjoy the game perhaps a bit too much.
The only bad part is that Hero Wesley is very difficult to accept.
Not that every episode of this show wasn't pretty bad, but jesus the Wesley episodes. They're the TNG equivalent of Lisa episodes. I was so glad when Wesley got shipped off to space school or whatever the fuck.
I guess my real question is, despite not liking the show, why did I watch it enough to remember things? Damn. I don't think any of you guys can answer that one.
