Earl Grey and Picard - All Good Things...
Dan and Steven are back and coming to you from our respective apartments during a quarantine. Must be all Q's doing, up to one of his silly games. Anyway, for the final episode of our TNG run, we talk about All Good Things, the series finale of TNG. Is this the best Q episode? Why was there such a hiatus between episodes for us? Can Steven find flaws in the writers temporal causality paradox? Tune is to listen to our longest episode yet!

Earl Grey and Picard - Darmok
Dan and Steven talk about season 5's "Darmok" and why it's such a great Picard episode. They wonder how an alien race with such a strange way of communicating could ever design a starship and they try their hand at the Tamarian language themselves ... with mixed results.
