At the end of season two, we got an e-mail! We also talked about season 2 and listed our favorite episodes. C'mon down and check it out.
we watched the final episode of star trek TOS season 2 - "assignment: earth"
it's a failed pilot for a show that never happened, and your intrepid hosts don't need long to figure out why.
chelsea and sem get on a conference call with guest host jeff to talk about conference calls, failed pilots, and stock footage. google teaches us all about half-remembered history. also, there's a cat.
bonus: listen to this dope mashup of 99 red balloons x 99 problems
this episode forces us to dig into the nitty gritty of slavery and also jesus. chelsea doesn't go in depth with marxist theory. modern day rome has a tv station that is a point of contention between the hosts. spock and bones do a lot of fighting for plot purposes. kirk has a dubious interaction with a woman. merikus is a tragic figure, but like, in the classical sense probably?
just read the water margin instead of watching this episode of star trek. but definitely listen to this podcast first.
CORRECTION: toward the end of the episode - it was emperor constantine, not emperor augustus.
We watched "The Ultimate Computer" from Star Trek TOS season 2! It was really good!
