about to pull trigger on animated series DVD box.

thoughts?

Kind of a mixed bag, but there are some pretty outstanding episodes in there. I wish that they were all a hour long as they feel rushed. Too bad Filmation's animation department was so awful.

Forgot... The Larry Niven story is terrific

Elvis Telecom, Sunday, 1 June 2008 04:50 (twelve years ago) link

so it sounds like you bought it and didn't feel ripped off?

it's either that or "the complete outer limits"

when did MR. Sulu become a doctor? or does the DR stand for Dick Revelator?

Star Trek: The Original Series produced many famous out-takes, which were shown to the delight of fans at gatherings over the years and have been extensively bootlegged. One famous example shows actor Leonard Nimoy, who plays the supposedly emotionless Mr. Spock, breaking into laughter when, in the first season episode "This Side of Paradise", instead of saying the line "The plants act as a repository", says "The plants act as a suppository". In another out-take, series star William Shatner breaks character during a scene and starts complaining about the food served in the studio commissary. A third example begins with the third season episode "Is There in Truth No Beauty?", in which guest actress Diana Muldaur recited the line, "We've come to the end of an eventful...trip", to which Shatner replies, "I don't know what you've been taking..." -- a reference to the then-topical issue of drug-induced hallucinations or "trips". People bumping into supposedly automatic doors when the backstage personnel mistimed opening them was a common accident depicted. Similarly there were also mishaps while filming in exterior, with aircraft flying over supposedly alien planets.

Forgot... The Larry Niven story is terrific
Didn't some other big names write for the animated series?

James Redd and the Blecchs, Thursday, 5 June 2008 18:43 (twelve years ago) link

like David "Tribbles" Gerrold?

Dr Morbius, Thursday, 5 June 2008 19:09 (twelve years ago) link

Probably. A lot of the same people also wrote for Land Of The Lost.

James Redd and the Blecchs, Thursday, 5 June 2008 20:34 (twelve years ago) link

the art in the cartoons is crazy! will post some pics

moonship journey to baja, Thursday, 5 June 2008 20:42 (twelve years ago) link

wow, this cartoon is amazing.

great lines from episode i was watching:

kirk: bob, you've got to three hours before the cloud reaches mantilles. you've got to evacuate the planet!!
bob: we don't have the resources to evacuate 82 million people ... we only have shuttlecraft for a few thousand
kirk: can you make that decision?
bob: there's no decision ... it'll have to be THE CHILDREN

later in the episode, only 20 minutes before the planet-eating cloud reaches mantilles

kirk: bob, have you finished the evacuation?
bob: yes ... there was some hysteria at first ... but we're finished now.
kirk: bob ...
bob: it was only five thousand CHILDREN ... out of EIGHTY-TWO MILLION PEOPLE
kirk: bob, where's elizabeth?
bob: here, with me ...
kirk: hold on bob ... it'll be okay ...

bones: who's elizabeth?
kirk: his daughter - (turns to camera) - SHE'S ELEVEN

seriously, i can't believe this was a cartoon ... pinnacle of the franchise IMO

moonship journey to baja, Monday, 9 February 2009 07:21 (eleven years ago) link

all my favourite tng episodes are in the sixth season. very convenient for dling.

realm of fear - lol barclay
schism - tng xfiles, crew members get abducted and vivisected by hooded aliens from another dimension
chain of command - ninja picard gets tortured by david warner, 'there are four lights!!'
ship in a bottle - professor moriarty rules the enterprise from the holodeck
starship mine - picard IS john mcclane, beats up tuvok
timescape - http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p127/yodadax/picard-lol.jpg

that leaves only the groundhog day episode (s05, cause and effect) and the lolcutus 2x episode (no idea what season that was in).

At the end Picard says that this was the only way for the aliens to get into contact with human beings. Unfortunately they killed one crew member by doing it, and Riker states that they were more than just curious.

Tracy Michael Jordan Catalano (Jordan), Thursday, 19 February 2009 16:01 (eleven years ago) link

man timescape is pretty dope

three months pass...

ds9 1st season episode "if wishes were horses" is p.good
has some decent lols and you can feel them starting to hit their stride

best line goes to odo: "ladies and gentlemen...and all androgynous creatures, your attention please! as you may have noticed, we're experiencing some difficulties - i'm going to have to ask you all to please refrain from using your imaginations."

thorn, Friday, 12 June 2009 03:51 (eleven years ago) link

two weeks pass...

There's a first season episode of TNG where Picard asks his crew to do the exact same thing!

Dan I., Friday, 26 June 2009 06:17 (eleven years ago) link

two months pass...

keeping on with ds9
season 5 episode "looking for par'mach in all the wrong places" probably funniest episode of star trek i've seen in a good while

worf and quark re-enact cyrano de bergerac and everyone ends up having sex, meanwhile o'brien and kira realize they wanna fuck each other and exchange really awkward glances

thorn, Wednesday, 2 September 2009 06:18 (eleven years ago) link

I think you mean dax and not kira,

mh, Wednesday, 2 September 2009 16:05 (eleven years ago) link

thorn, Wednesday, 2 September 2009 19:33 (eleven years ago) link

the DS9 where Sisko gets bonked on the head and thinks he's a golden age scifi writer is really good, and everyone is a much better actor without pounds of makeup.

missing a couple of crucial ones imo

remember me (s04) - beverly all alone aboard the enterprise
frame of mind (s06) - is riker in a play? a prisoner? mental?!?!?

also recommended:

yesterday's enterprise (s03) - tasha yar!
future imperfect (s04) - more riker headfuck fun
clues (s04) - i don't remember a *thing* about last night
night terrors (s04) - deanna's lol nightmares
tapestry (s06) - picard has his time over again
parallels (s07) - worf's turn to be headfucked

nanoflymo (ledge), Monday, 24 January 2011 23:11 (nine years ago) link

All good episodes, I'd also include Darmok and The Inner Light from s5, too excellent Picard-centred eps.

Also Sarek from s3 - a pretty uneventful episode for the most part, until two very dramatic and haunting scenes in the last 10 minutes.

Duane Barry, Tuesday, 25 January 2011 11:51 (nine years ago) link

The Inner Light aka picard learns the nose flute.

Saw TNG S3 ep "The Hunted", about the Enterprise capturing and attempting to return a genetically modified super soldier to his home planet. The scenes where the guy was expertly eluding the crew and giving them the runaround with false clues as he attempted to escape the ship were really well done. Cool to see the Enterprise crew outsmarted on their own turf. Even better for what the writers didn't have the soldier guy do, e.g. take over the bridge and commandeer the whole ship, which has been done to death.
