Star Trek 29 “The City on the Edge of Forever”

Star Trek TOSIMDb

Space: the final frontier. Our five-year ten-episode mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.

Join Olly and me as we look into episode 29: “The City on the Edge of Forever”. We question the nature of the time portal—sorry: “Guardian of Forever” (nice guarding there, pal, by the way). We question why Kirk brings only part of the landing party thru the portal. We question the use of soft focus on Joan Collins. And we question the problem with a device that records video but can’t play it back without being hooked up to a series of old radio tubes. Also, we forget to mentioned “Let’s get the hell out of here” was the first time “hell” was used as a curse word on American TV.

I’m watching the Netflix streaming version; Olly is watching a DVD; and we pretty much stay in sync. Start at 0:00:00 on the countdown.
