No brain episode
From: Colin H
Well it finally arrived, with un ending inevitability, before the dire subterfuge that is the animated series we have this. Spocks brain. The Episodes loathsome theme starts with the head theft. Is this the for runner of scifi zombie films. "Brains brains!". Now on discovering Spock in Sickbay, nice of the lady to take him there, Mccoy makes an annoucment. The Brains gone, but No bleeding did they cauterise the wounds? If so how did they reattach them.? Kirk seriously has a thing about caves. All the planets to choose from and he goes for a cave. Tracy would be proud. Still Kirk gets a shock! No cave girls I bet this weeks yeoman was worried. The Cave guys are probably one step away from genocide. Then we have the supremely hilarious site of Spock the automaton. I mean can you imagine Nimoy when he read the script." Your kidding right, you want to get my lawyer in the phone!. Kirk eventually sees female, then thinks mmmm hump lady save spock oh the dilemma, what's a horny Captain to do. still if Spock can asertain that Kirk and co are who they are, how come his predicament is less apparent to him. Does he not realise his a light bulb. Kirks SnM side rears it's head again pain and delight mmmm, remember the gamers of triskelkian whip me whip me. Now this is a dumb society yet they can work the pain giver and other tech, so that is a conflict in itself. Maybe these people evolved into Pakleds. Now If Spock is the controller why did he not help them, cut power or something like that. Instead of being an intelligent light bulb. Plus How come dum chick knows about the controller being needed. Again another faux par. Mind you Kirk could always have implanted m5 in Spocks place. Oh I'm sure they had a Spare. Then you have the knowledge inducer. If dum chick can learn brain surgery why did Kirk or Scotty not do it. Scotty especially is good at fixing things. Finally yet again Kirk fucks over another civilisation. True to form he destroys there way of life, leaving them to hump merrily away, just like the White haired Hawaiian tribe previously deprived of there caring computer. Oh and I meant the Ghost looked like Marlon Brando not was Marlon Brando. No idea who it really was, that's one for memory alpha. Live long and podcast Colin
