Since starting the Nerd Hurdles, two fandoms we’ve known we’d eventually have to cover would be Xena: Warrior Princess and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. We’ve eluded them for years, we’re tired of running. It’s time.

Like we did with Harry PotterBSG and Angel, at the end of every episode we’re going to record a Xenaphobes (or Xenaphiles?) or a Deep Shite Nine (or Tief in der Scheiße? Nein!) segment of what we’ve witnessed.

So far it turns out that both shows are simultaneously “not as bad” and “far worse” than we remembered. Luckily, both are more entertaining as well.

    Tony Pucci and I are going through Deep Space 9 right now. He’s seen them all before, I’ve only seen Original and Next Gen so it’s all new to me. I’m having a lot of fun and it’s making me realize how much I want more Star Trek on TV and not more movies.

      We’re having trouble getting through season 5. We’re only halfway through disc 2 and it’s like pulling teeth. Abysmal. If you’ve only seen TOS and TNG, I’d highly suggest watching Voyager as it’s the best Trek ever made.

    Tony loves Voyager more but I wanted to watch the series “in order.” We’re compromising and we’re going to watch season 1 of DS9, then season 1 of Voager and keep switching off. I’m enjoying DS9 very much so that is good to hear that Voyager is even better.

      That’s a decent way to do it. House of Cards has us distracted from continuing with the fifth season of DS9.

        I want to watch that too, I’ve heard a lot of good things but Kevin Spacey bugs me, I don’t know why. I think it’s the cadence to his voice.
