TNG - Ménage à Troi
"The Masterpiece Society" - NextGen HD
Ugh. Another painfully dull outing.
TOS: A Piece of the Action
The great Vic Tayback, 6 years before he gained fame as Mel, the diner owner in Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore and its TV spinoff, Alice.
James Doohan gets a funny voice cameo.
"Conundrum" - NextGen HD
This one is just plain fucking stupid.
"Power Play" - NextGen HD
Fun to watch Spiner, Sirtis and Meaney play bad guys.
TOS-r: The Immunity Syndrome
I like the original creature effects better.
Agreed. There aren't too many of the new effects that I would take over the originals.
TNG - Family
TOS-r: The Ultimate Computer
Guest star William Marshall and Shatner both turn up the acting juice as the Enterprise is turned into the equivalent of an armed robot drone with helpless passengers.
The CGI effects show us action not possible with the original optical printing technique, though I would have choreographed it a bit differently.
TNG - Captain's Holiday
Watched The Doomsday Machine...reading a thread on this board made me want to watch it again.
TOS - Bread and Circuses
It would have been an interesting development if the "Children of the Son" cult had been started due to stories from survivors of Merik's ship six years earlier. Though the presence of Ian Wolfe's Septimus character seems to disprove that theory.
Obsession. My 6-year-old wanted to see a phaser in action and this one has it in the teaser.
TOS: The Menagerie, Part I
with preview for Part II.
"Spock's Brain" - TOS Remastered
TOS: The Menagerie, Part II
I don't know if it's the story as aired or the performance, but Number One never strikes me as someone superintelligent and logical. Some of those overdubbed lines of the transporter chief may be diminishing her importance, since they address Spock even if she's in the room.
Separate names with a comma.
