Re: Favorite Unpopular Episode

"Bread and Circuses" - not one that is toally trashed here, but it's always ranked in the bottom third, and I don't agree

  • A starfleet officer who is a coward when tested
  • A script written by the two Genes together that is a mishmash of their favourite themes (anti-TV networks, slave girls for GR; and religion, gods and the prime directive for GC)
  • Clever satire that foresaw reality TV 30 years before it took off
  • A great, underrated villain
  • Outdoor shooting
  • Scotty is the hero
  • One of the greatest Spock/Bones scenes in the jail.
"Sometimes I get the feeling the only way we could achieve a STAR TREK segment on budget would be to have 60 minutes of Mr. Spock playing kazoo solo as Captain Kirk holds him in his arms while standing in a telephone booth."
Bob Justman, 1967.
