Top Ten Rejected Star Trek Episodes

29 Dec

December 29, 2014

These episodes were rejected for being too silly or farfetched for the original series.

1- The Enterprise is taken over by hippies- no wait, that happened.

2- Spock’s brain is stolen and- sorry, that was an episode.

3- A woman takes over Kirk’s body and he acts feminine and – oops, they did that one.

4- The Enterprise is taken over by children who worship an alien played by a fat divorce attorney. My bad, that aired too.

5- The crew meets space-Abraham Lincoln and sheesh, that was an episode too? And it also had space-Genghis Khan?

6- Kirk meets a man named Mudd who’s henpecked by a robot duplicate of his ex-wife… no, no that was done.

7- Nazi Planet. Seriously? They did a Nazi Planet?

8- Alien flowers turn Spock into a romantic poet. No way, really?

9- The ship is taken over by immobile breeding cotton balls, while everyone in the crew knows about a new form of wheat except Kirk. Hard to believe, but that’s a story.

10- McCoy sees a giant rabbit, Sulu fights a samurai, Don Juan woos a crewman, and Kirk beats up a bully in some sort of bizarre amusement park.  Wait, that’s not an episode of Scooby Doo? They did that on Star Trek? I give up.

The Tepid Zombie’s 2014 Year In Review

27 Dec

December 27, 2014

Unbelievably, this is the first appearance of the Tepid Zombie in 2014. Before that, he’d been a pretty constant presence, either reviewing odd things on Netflix, making zombie-complaints about the news, or just generally talking about eating brains. (You can find his old posts here.) For those new to the Tepid zombie, this is a look at what this blog would (or maybe I should say “will”) look like after the zombie apocalypse when this blog will be written by a zombie. He’s an accountant, by the way, and kind of lazy.
