In honor of Christmas Eve, I’m going to…catch up on all the things I need to catch up on! The Star Trek Re-Watch has passed “The Tholian Web,” which made absolutely no narrative sense to me, and “Plato’s Stepchildren,” which is just ghastly from beginning to end. I don’t know that I can ever watch that again, even in a fevered delirium with no other stimuli in sight.
Then there was “Wink of an Eye,” a solidly middle-of-the-bunch episode save for the irredeemably immoral ending. That said, I’d have rather watched it again than see “The Empath,” this week’s outing, in which big-headed sadistic aliens torture our heroes in order to drive a helpless empath to suicide. Can we just skip to the movies?
December has been an insanely busy month for me so I’m looking forward to relaxing a bit more in the new year. Happy holidays to all those that celebrate such things, and I hope the 2011 brings good things to all.
