Re: TOS S1: The Naked Time

I never was clear--Spock apparently never got the cure, so how did he become magically rational again? Did seeing Kirk lose it make him pull himself together? Random other thoughts: Sulu is buff! My favorite line: "Take D'Artagnan here to sick bay." (Spock's mildly disgusted orders for security regarding an unconscious Sulu.) Second favorite is Uhura's, "Sorry, neither." At the end when Kirk, Uhura, McCoy and Rand are flinching and grabbing their ears at the noise from the planetary escape and the camera shot moves to the overhead POV, Sulu and the helmsman are just sitting there unaffected.

Re: TOS S1: What Are Little Girls Made Of?

Close to classic Trek: an interesting philosophical premise with some silly story around it that nevertheless is affecting.

@nosewings: yes that was an incredibly phallic stalactite. It even had balls. Tell me that was a coincidence, prop master.

Kirk is such a stone cold lover, he can even seduce an android (I have to say, the "I will kiss you" phaser blast scene is hysterical.)

So, it's heavily implied Korby is banging Andrea. Another progressive thing for 60's tv. Also speaking of Andrea, what happened to the real Andrea? Since the replication process doesn't seem to occur from scratch.

Is the screenwriter the same Robert Bloch who wrote Psycho?

I like how Korby lost some part of his humanity by transferring himself into the robot body. He didn't seem desperate enough to kill himself at the end though, I think it would've made more sense if poor malfunctioning Andreabot offed them both.

Re: TOS S1: The Man Trap

Also, why did the Nancy monster kill the professor at the end? He was her only ally. She'd managed to co-exist with him for at least a year without eating him. And after she'd already eaten like 4 crewmen, shouldn't she have been kind of... full? Maybe to justify McCoy killing her later I guess (not a noble buffalo after all, just a gluttonous monster in a rubber suit.)

Re: TOS S1: The Man Trap

This isn't a bad episode of TOS, just not a great one. The final sequence drags on far too long. McCoy standing there letting Kirk almost get killed is bad enough, but then Spock too? Especially since McCoy says earlier that death would be almost instantaneous. Definitely watch your weirdass ex grope him, then turn into a sea monster in front of you. They are some serious saps for love in the future. At least Mc Coy was reprimanded for it (maddeningly, Kirk apologized, then McCoy's glands almost got him killed.)

Re: TOS S2: The Immunity Syndrome

I'm just not clear on why they see this unknown mass ahead and after one probe fails they drive into it. They know it killed another starship ( and a galaxy.) If I were the Captain though, it would be a boring show.

The Spock/Kirk/McCoy dynamic never gets old to me (I refuse to accept that Star Trek V is canon.)

Re: TOS S2: Who Mourns for Adonais?

Even as a kid, I was annoyed that yet another Enterprise female crew member was once again going belly up when some hawt guy shows up. Sure he wanted to imprison and/or kill her shipmates, but he's like a God and he's into her and she's in love with him cuz it's been like a whole hour already. (I guess the men on the ship can be almost as dumb at times--see next paragraph.)

(And should Star Fleet really encourage their officers to date? This is still a quasi-military mission.)

And then not only was Scotty repeatedly charging at Apollo like he grabbed the last PlayStation on Black Friday, but he disobeys a direct order. I want to do so much firing right now.

Having said all that, this episode always entertained me when I was a kid. The right mix of unintentionally silly and intentionally thoughtful Trek I guess.
