TNG - The Perfect Mate.
That's delightfully weird, I like that one.
I think I'm one of the few people on the planet that thinks this is a decent episode.
Spock is really off in that one...but in a good way! Plus he's fiddling with the remote McCoy used on him in Spock's Brain. hhhmmm...
Star trek Deep space 9 The Search parts 1&2
"That Which Survives" is at best a so-so episode, but I've always loved the eerie, creepy background music and how Losira's projection/hologram/whatever shrinks into a narrow line and then becomes a dot before vanishing, much like how an old TV from back in the day would turn off.
Errand of Mercy
DS9: Duet. My favorite 1st season ep.
TOS: This Side of Paradise, streamed on Netflix.
MCCOY: Well, that's the second time man's been thrown out of paradise.
KIRK: No, no, Bones. This time we walked out on our own. Maybe we weren't meant for paradise. Maybe we were meant to fight our way through. Struggle, claw our way up, scratch for every inch of the way. Maybe we can't stroll to the music of the lute. We must march to the sound of drums.
KIRK: Poetry, Captain. Non-regulation.
KIRK: We haven't heard much from you about Omicron Ceti Three, Mister Spock.
SPOCK: I have little to say about it, Captain, except that for the first time in my life I was happy.
TOS: Who Mourns for Adonais, streamed on Netflix.
This episode had much in common with The Squire of Gothos , including a pretty girl in a beautiful dress and an alien's "power source" that gets broken by Kirk. Another great Trek example of "divide and conquer":
Team A, on the planet:
Chekov (with his Beatle wig)
Team B, onboard Enterprise:
Spock (with his 20th century aircraft bearing and windage computer)
Uhura (in coveralls with a soldering iron)
Leslie (assisting Sulu with a blinky light computer on a TV tray)
Scotty takes a beating in this episode, and mostly acts like dopey lovesick third-season Scotty instead of professional rock-solid dependable first-season Scotty. Palamas almost pulls a Marla McGivers and nearly sells out her shipmates to yet another powerful attractive dude, but Kirk's pep-talk brings her back to reality.
Apparently the "picnic table" was also part of Apollo's temple, because it gets melted by Enterprise's phasers along with the rest of the temple. I liked the temple and surrounding decorations, if I were rich I think I would have an exact duplicate built for my backyard.
A Piece of the Action (TOS Blu-ray)
Not an episode. "The Captains" on BBCA.
Saw it previously on Netflix. Just loaded with great stuff.
"The Naked Time" - TOS Remastered
Squire of Gothos. TOS-R.
DS9: "The Reckoning".
"Get A Life" on BBCA.
Had seen it before but didn't realize Arlene Martel was in it. Didn't know she went to alot of conventions. She still looked good. It's a shame she's gone.
Voyager Friendship one
The last episode of Star Trek that I watched was
Spectre of the Gun on an old VHS that I recorded a while back. That was around two weeks ago. The tapes are in pretty good condition considering that they are at least ten years old.
I used to record two episodes on one tape using the SP button on the old VCR, putting two episodes on one tape and actually got 48 of the OS recorded. It was a pretty cool hobby that I had and I always looked forward to midnight when the show was on. This is well before DVD's came into play when I just went out and bought most of them. I also purchased quite a few on VHS back in the day. This was very cool because every Saturday night I would sit and watch a few episodes.
I collected TOS, TNG, and most of DS9 that way, except I'd do it SLP and record 6-9 per tape. Kind of insane thinking about how much time and money I spent doing it, just to buy the DVDs a few years later. Oh well!
She was in an episode of Battlestar Galactica I watched the other day.
I agree. The time and money spent on VHS tapes was crazy.
I have tons of old movies, TV shows and sporting events on VHS stored away and most of these I later bought on disc.
It is kind of a waste...
