None of this is actually true.
Until he worked on it. Geez, ten years later and no one reads the affection he developed for it.
"Holiday Party" was quite a bit funnier than "Skin a Cat," and I thought "Skin a Cat" was funny.
Even the selection of the sound of the screen lowering was hilarious.
Peck is absolutely nailing pretty much all performances of Spock.
Huh? That might apply to Kirk at the beginning of Trek XI, but even that's a bit of a simplification and he'd gotten direction in life by the end of that movie. But that description is not applicable to Paul Wesley's Kirk on SNW at all.
He was a well-read man who ALSO hung out in bars with no direction in life.
Oh. You're friends with Sam.
The thing to remember here is, these things are parodies of Trek old and new.
If they make you laugh, great. If they make you a little uncomfortable, so much the better.
I think many Trek fans are open to parodies - Galaxy Quest, Redshirts and the like share a fair portion of their audience with Trek.
I'm just not sure these are particularly good parodies. Both feel like a single joke stretched very thin.
Fans can be open to parodies if not titled Star Trek.
If official it's a steeper hill to climb.
LDS has a lot of parody in it, yet it’s doing extremely well among the fans.
it’s just that personally I didn’t find these two skits funny at all, them being official or not has nothing to do with it.
LDS had to fight for that place.
I'm not saying it's impossible; only that the standard is different.
I've rewatched these and the second one in particular I really like.
TAS was bizarre and utterly, utterly bonkers. I do wish they'd do proper nuTAS episodes instead but these are fun for what they are.
Well the"fighting" was being funny.
Well, we're halfway through and, uh, I can respect their apparent decision to start strong. Relatively.
This does the virtue of being a more plausible first-contact situation than any ever portrayed on Star Trek (or any other TV or movie that I can think of).
WTF did I just watch?
The best Very Short Trek to date. Which isn’t saying much.
That was…terrible. At this point I’m wondering if they are intentionally trying to make these bad.
No, that’s not what they are doing. They are using the TAS animated format to make what they think are funny SNL-type skits. The humor being entirely subjective, of course. But they are not trying to make an intentionally bad product, because nobody does that.
I just can’t believe they’re going to completely waste Connor Trineer with one of these, unless it has something to do with his death in TATV, which was a million times worse than any Very Short Trek.
