Maverick November 29, 2015 Share November 29, 2015 I generally like Riker, but as I recall at the time the show was airing the general consensus was his character was kind of boring. He was the "fun" one of the crew, which was interesting because as XO it was his job to be the asshole that keeps the crew in line. One thing he was not good at were the overly dramatic moments. I still remember how dreadful he was in "Interface" when tells Geordi the story of losing his mother. But hands down, nothing beats his performance in "Hide and Q". Many a first season episode makes me cringe nowadays, but that one's up there. As to the cuts, I saw "The Loss" and the entire final scene where Riker and Troi talk was cut. It is annoying when scenes you so clearly remember are completely cut from the show. Link to comment
