VOY: Dark Frontier
Always liked this one. It is one of the episodes that I feel would be well served by an HD upgrade.
Yeah, the direction in this one is great; one of the few times, in my opinion, that the director totally makes the episode. An HD transfer would be glorious.
TOS: Wolf in the Fold, streamed on Netflix.
Argelius is a weird planet, sort of like a cross between Rick's Cafe from Casablanca and Risa.
Spock teaches us about irrational numbers and endless loops, and McCoy shares some of his really good drugs with the rest of the crew, though I don't think that it was a good idea to let Sulu drive the ship while so intoxicated.
Kirk has a secret key that disables Sulu's console. So he can happily punch buttons all day and not cause trouble while plastered. Sort of a precursor to the prefix code. Kirk had it installed after the "King Kevin O'Reilly" incident.
TNG "Hero Worship" (OK) and "Violations" (good)
"The Mark of Gideon" - TOS Remastered
Come on...what's the worst that could happen?!
TOS-r: The Squire of Gothos; The Galileo Seven
"Empok Nor" is an underrated and very creepy episode of DS9. Andrew Robinson chewed the scenery in that one to great effect and it was one of the best Garak-centric (or Garak-heavy) episodes in the series. I haven't seen that one in ages.
He did play a serial killer in Dirty Harry. And quite effectively too. You can see it in his performance in this episode.
Yeah, Robinson is one of the most effective character actors in the business though he doesn't get anything close to the attention and praise he deserves for his often sinister and bugged-out performances. Good guy, too, based on convention interviews and YouTube videos.
The role in Dirty Harry is definitely his most memorable, in my opinion.
DS9 on DVD - In the Cards
A Taste of Armageddon
DS9: Dramatis Personae
Not Star Trek but I watched "Dirty Harry" on cable earlier tonight.
