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.
Olly and I reestablish contact after slipping thru a rift in the fabric of space-time and a debilitating bout of space madness to talk about “The Tholian Web”! Oh those punctual Tholians cause no end of vexation while Spock tries to catch Kirk on the next swing around the ol’ space carousel (or whatever. Honestly, i have no idea what’s causing this). It’s great fun seeing Spock in charge and endlessly put upon, and it makes wonderful use of the whole cast; even Nurse Chapel!
I suggest we could have a whole series of this stuff. Olly insults Chekov, as usual. I suggest the Tholians might be teenage girls in disguise. Olly defends the sparkly spacesuits. It’s a haunted house! Kirk-light! It’s Shakespearean!
I’m watching the Netflix streaming version; Olly is watching something else; and we kind of stay in sync. Start at 0:00:00 on the countdown.
