Too Short A Season and Cholesterol
From: Marc Thomas
Hi Trek TV Friends. I've been harped at by Doctors for years about blood pressure and cholesterol and have never heard the wheat thing I'll have to see where that was published. No matter the point is you have now reached that stage in life where you must relinquish all the joys of food or takes shit loads of pills like me. It's like a medical bar mitzvah.Vaughn,You are now a man. I was really hoping you would do a podcast with your mother during her visit. Oh well, my Moms probably wouldn't be interested either. I've played them some of my more ambitious content bound for you and they are so obviously confused, trying to be polite "That nice dear" You know whose Mom gets Trek TV? Kaelin's kid's mom. I really liked her email which touched on theme's anthropological. Here are my comments for the episode "Too Short The Season" Shades,here of "The Deadly Years" Old age make up hadn't improved much by the 1980's How more germane to continuity might have been "Too Short a Season" were it Captain Kirk facing the consequences of arming those Hill Folk of the Mugatu Planet in "Private Little War". The past transgressions of Admiral Mark seem lifted directly from that TOS'pisode and I'll bet teleplaywrite Michael Michaelian had it in mind. Of course I can't help but view TNG in TOS terms. It's hard for me to imagine Star Trek from the POV of those of you who knew Data before Spock so I've been Netflicking the 21st century recurrence of Doctor Who and digging it hard sans the least familiarity with any prior execution of the property beyond a vague understanding that it did in fact exist. I recently viewed David Tennent in The "Lazarus Experiment" which flirts, as does "Too Short", with the Olden Balls trope. Geezer make up still not up to speed by the middling Aughts. Echos also of TAS' swan song "The Counter-Clock Incident" and 'Cocoon' a charming movie (from the same decade as this episode) about elderly men who magically regrow their boners. Eat right, chill out and be carefull both of you, I really need you to get old someday. It's hilarious you'll love it. Cackling Flappingly, Marc
