I think I enjoy the hated Spock's Brain episode more than that one.  I think every Star Trek fan has a guilty pleasure for a few of the "sillier" episodes.  I guess "silly" could easily describe 1/2 the episodes, so who am I to talk? LOL

I'll try my hand at a top 5 (in no order):

yeah that one bites, though I must say the actor playing Lazarus does a great job

how about 'Wolf in the Fold', I like the mystery and darkness, also 'Court Martial' is underrated: "Books, gentleman, books!"

though some did not know what to make of it, i quite like Turnabout Intruder, where Shatner does a really great acting job

I think it worked out as an entertaining way to end Star Trek with the mutiny situation, though it wasn't intended to be the end.

You must include "The Squire of Gothos" which feature William Campbell (who just recently passed away) in an amazing acting performance.

I'm starting to dig into some of the TNG episodes I'm not as familiar with.  I also remembered that one day last year, I picked up on sale a Scene It: Star Trek DVD board game.  I've never played it, but I'm gonna go head to head with my brother sometime in the next few weeks. Geek

I've been watching tons of convention panel interviews lately, mainly with the TNG cast.  That and I took one of those silly online quizzes "Which TNG character are you?": http://quizfarm.com/quizzes/new/dalastar/which-star-trek-the-next-generation-character-are-you/

You Scored as Geordi LaForge

You are good-natured and quick thinking. You are good at figuring out puzzels and building things.

Also stumbled across this interesting video involving the original series:
