I’ve been a bit quiet online recently because I was in the middle of moving. But what better way to celebrate the just-installed Wi-fi in my new apartment than with a quick post? And since it’s Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d point out that my latest Star Trek Re-Watch review, “Requiem for Methuselah,” aired on February 14, 1969. So what did lonely Trekkies see that Friday night?
I guess nothing says “love” more than Captain Kirk forcing his affection on an unfeeling woman–or a reasonable facsimile, as it happens. Sadly, I’m sure some Trekkie dates ended exactly like this. Am I right?
This episode is also notable because Torie and I completely disagreed on its merits, or lack thereof. When you have a moment, take a look at our commentary on The Viewscreen and add your two cents to the discussion!
Also, I hope everyone celebrated today in their preferred fashion! I unpacked boxes, connected our video game consoles to our TV, and watched The Matrix an episode of Smallville.
