Good horror stuff, disaster episodes are often great and Worf's Klingon predator is unforgettable.

I wouldn't have guessed that.

I don't think that "Sub Rosa" is an outstanding episode, but definitely a memorable one. Like "Fair Haven" in VOY it suffers from clichées, but who minds familiar patterns when the episode is well done.
TNG was often quite sterile, so bringing sex into the show was often a smart idea, especially when it is not blunt like Theiss-wear, catsuits and ripped shirts but when it soaked in sex without naked skin, when sex is a made a theme of the story like in "The Cage".

Fear not, I would never describe it as an outstanding Star Trek episode myself, but as a diversion from the norm I do enjoy it overall. But then that's also why I enjoy eps like 'Lonely Among Us', 'Cause and Effect' etc

Not just for Gates!!

Seriously now, I think that a lot of second season episodes are underrated. "The Royale" is slightly surrealistic and plain fun, "Time Squared" is a good episode about Picard and shows the dramatic merit of time travel gimmicks.
Yes you did...

The Royale, is kinda fun and dark at the same time. Imagine being stuck in the worse novel you've ever read. Like a nightmare "Groundhog Day".

Time Squared, I like it and I get it, but I've seen a few too many time.

I actually really like 'Time Squared'.

I think it's a far better piece regarding Picard 'meeting himself' and having to deal with his own nature and what he would or wouldn't do in situations than the 'attempt' in doing similarly with him and Shinzon in Nemesis.

I also always enjoyed 'Conundrum', 'Starship Mine' and 'Devil's Due'.

I like "Who Watches the Watchers", how's that regarded amongst the fans?

A very good episode - not watched it for some time now, but solid.

"Who Watches the Watchers" is one of my personal favourites. We see a very humble Picard and a very brave Picard. Even when you know that you doc can save your life, it takes balls of steel to step in front of a bow and get shot in the heart just in order to get de-deified.
