What I’m Watching Wednesday: Star Trek: The Next Generation Season 5

“Cost Of Living” is a standout, amazing episode for many reasons. First, it’s a show about death and what we owe our decedents. Second, the entire script is carried by Luaxanna Troi and a guest star played by David Ogden Stiers (which, if you’re going to put a show in the hands of a guest star, it should be David Ogden Stiers). And third, it parks the first appearance of Michelle Ford who later played the role of Ro Laren. The whole season is good, but honestly that one episode is worth more than its weight in gold.
