Re: Robert Sawyer goes off on "Return of the Archons"

I loved it. I thought the bit of Festival was a beautiful metaphor of religious fanaticism and how as humans we need to purge all of our emotions and desires when we live in a society or system in which all of these human needs are suppressed. Festival was necessary to keep them sane. Oh, and Spock punched a guy and look embarrassed for doing it!

Great moment.
Great concept.
Great episode.

Also they looked like Jedi Knights with a hollow tube for a light saber!

I find it strange that a writer is criticizing production values and not the story, which should naturally be his default.
