#87 – ‘The Magicks of Megas-tu’ & ‘Once Upon a Planet’ TAS S1E08 & 09

Join your increasingly perplexed hosts as they discuss the insanity of Spock using logic to justify magic, the expanded opportunities for Uhura to play an integral role during the run of Star Trek: The Animated Series, and the discomfort at seeing McCoy pine for a Southern plantation.

#25 – ‘A Piece of the Action’ TOS S2E17

Need a concrete example for why the prime directive is so important? Alternatively, looking for any sort of contrivance to watch Captain Kirk and Commander Spock dress up as sexy gangsters? Whichever is your pleasure you will get served nicely in ‘A Piece of the Action,’ episode 17 of the original Star Trek’s second season. Join your fawning fedora fan hosts as they debate the morality of interstellar interference, the difference between art and dogma, and the sheer joy of William Shatner’s acting in this episode.
