Star Trek TOS – Episode 14 – Balance of Terror [Remastered]


I need a new computer, and larger buckets of internets at my house. Seriously, if it isn’t just my computer shutting down every so often, the internet went out completely yesterday. I can’t imagine why there’s an internet shortage here. Florida’s full of old people, and old people are afraid of the internet, right? So there should be plenty of internet for the rest of us. (Spock logic. I has it.)

SUMMARY

The Romulans are being naughty and blowing up Federation stuff. Unfortunately for them, it’s Captain Kirk to save the day.

An actor is accused of being a mass murderer and dictator. For some reason, nobody really questions these accusations as much as they probably should.

Star Trek TOS – Episode 11 – The Menagerie, Part I [Remastered]


Thanks for holding on for a bit. My computer should be virus-free now, and after a good registry scrubbing, it’s actually working better than before.

Oh, The Menagerie. The coolest use of unused scrap TV footage ever. The flashback scenes in this episode and the next come from the original pilot, The Menagerie. The only character that survived the re-write was Spock, so that’s why he’s been used as the “bridge” between the old story and the new. I can only imagine Gene Roddenberry sitting down thinking, “How in the hell do I fit this into this???”, but he does it brilliantly.

SUMMARY

Spock be snatchin’ up your Captains and stealing your spaceships. He’s a badass gangsta. He’s also way smarter than you.

Star Trek TOS – Episode 8 – Miri


I think watching this episode more than once would turn me into one of those, “Get off my lawn!” crotchety old people. Seriously. I feel the need to play roller derby with some twelve-year-olds and get this aggression out.

Watch this episode at CBS.com.
