This book has been a companion on my journey (like time!) as I did my TNG rewatch. It only goes through Generations, so here endeth this book's mission. I know some fans don't care for nitpicks, but I think this book does it with fan-ish love. We all have to be open to recognizing when mistakes are made! Sometimes we just have to shrug our shoulders or else come up with some fan reason. This book (2nd ed) has submissions from fans as well as the author covering all seven seasons (and a movie) of ...more

Okay, I admit it - I do myself what this book does - watch something and then pick at the plot failures. Or the strange glasses that keep refilling themselves when we're not watching them. But this book does it in a funny way, skewering the problems and making lots of jokes on the way. If you can't stand someone finding fault with a beloved show, then avoid this like the plague - otherwise, sit back, enjoy and have a good chuckle.

I absolutely ADORED this book (updated to include TNG's seven year run & the film "Generations"). It points out some fascinating inconsistencies, goofs, and outrageous mistakes with great humour...and occasionally made me laugh until I cried. A book to give to those who think that "Star Trek" fans can be too po-faced and straight-laced for their own good. Some of them DO have a sense of humour...and this work of love proves it.

This is my favorite of Phil's Nitpicker's Guides. Phil listened to his fans when he put this together and used their contributions, and that effort pays off. And, unlike the Volume 1 book, this one covers the complete series as well as the first film (which is sort of the end of TNG the tv show in a way, since the movie was filmed right after series and features the Enterprise D). Overall, this far surpasses the first nitpicker's guide.

Next time you're watching a rerun of Star Trek TNG, follow along with this handy book, and you too can know how many times Data uses a contraction throughout a given episode! Four! Or, how Geordi knows when a bomb is planted by the Romulans! It used a molecular decay detonator!

Whoot! Another nitpicker's guide! And just as the others, it's great fun. Who would've thought that one could find so many errors in Star Trek? =)

In a similar format to the first volume, this book explores the errors found in Star Trek The Next Generation. This book covers errors that were missed in the first volume and adds season 7.

I love both the Nitpickers Guides. I can't watch an episode now without remembering all the funny little insights I that I read about in these books, years ago.
