Which TNG season to buy?

Well I think a TNG season would be the perfect gift for someone I know, but I really don't have a ton of money so I only want to get one, maybe two at the most.

I myself am partial to TNG but I'm afraid I have no real recollection for which episodes are in which seasons.

So I figured I should come and ask yall for advice, so here goes:

Is there any TNG season that people generally consider the best? ¿Or lacking that, are there a couple of seasons that are considered overall better than the rest?

Oh, the person in question is fond of Data, in case that might bias the answer any.

I am a Simpsons fan and I know theres huge debates over which seasons are the best, but I also know there's generally a consensus that Seasons 4 - 8 are kind of the prime of the show. ¿I'm hoping that there might be a similar consensus where TNG is concerned.

Thanks for any help on this matter and hopefully I'm not just stirring up a can of worms.

Personally, I've found Season 3 to be the best. Overall, I think it has the most rewatchable value and has some of the best episodes of the series like "Best of Both Worlds", "Sins of the Father", and "The Defector." It also has "The Offspring" and "The Most Toys" which are fairly good Data episodes.

I would agree that Season 3 is an excellent season to start with if you aren't going to buy them in order.

In addition to the episodes listed by TOO, it also has "Who Watches the Watchers," "Hollow Pursuits" (introduction to Barclay), and of course the classic "Yesterday's Enterprise." Many other great episodes are in this season as well.

But do remember that "Best of Both Worlds" is a cliff hanger an only part one is included in the Season 3 set.

The complete season by season list is here if you want to compare.

Cool so Season 3 huh?  I had actually read that somewhere else too so I think I am probably going to go with that one.

Well I'll keep checking back to see if anyone thinks otherwise, thanks for your answers.

Season 3 has much to offer and is probably the best. The most notable episode is "Yesterdays Enterprise"

Ditto. I like season four a little better but they are both great.

I know I said season 3 and 4 but I just had a thought. If the person you're buying them for likes Data than IMO the best Data episode is "Measure of a Man" which is in season 2...but then season 4 has "Brothers" and "Data's Day" . Season 3 is good too though with "The Offspring and "The Most Toys" So many to choose.
:p

There are collection sets that might give more bang for your buck$. Captain's log  , Time travel  and Borg. These sets contain episodes from all of the Trek series and do not cost as much as season box sets.
