All posts for the month April, 2017

This episode was cursed. We had to record it twice and we still had recording issues. Ironic that it’s one of–if not the–best episode of Season One. Thanks for bearing with us, y’all.

It’s Antares, not Ares. Antares is butts. I apologize for forgetting that, crew of the Ares.

When I was a kid the Klingon death yell was cringey has heck. As I grew up and it was revisited over time, it faded into the background of Klingon culture. Is it the open, bare showing of emotion that makes it cringey? The whole-hearted dedication to something weird? I dunno.

The Beige and The Bold is available on iTunes, Stitcher, and other podcasting platforms. It updates Monday mornings at 2:00 AM ET / 1:00 CT.

Derek. Hates. Fun.

That’s all I have to say.

Except for the part where Derek said “Andy Rooney” when he meant “Benny Hill.”

It only occurs to me now that Kirk likely violated a temporal prime directive in saving themselves from the probe. Like, would The Federation allow anyone else to travel in time to save their planet like Kirk saved Earth? The intervention of an alien species might be a mitigating factor, as well as the fact that the abduction of George and Gracie might have been part of a stable time loop, but the extinction of the whales was a mistake Earth made and a extinction as a result of a civilization’s shortsightedness is kind of exactly what The Prime Directive is for. Saving Earth probably should have been an additional criminal charge for him.

Also, next week is the Season 4 supplemental and the end of 17 to 01, so there’s no movie trailer for Star Trek V: The Final Frontier.

17 to 01 is available on iTunes. It updates Thursday mornings at 2:00 AM ET / 1:00 CT. We’re also amazingly on Stitcher.

 

This one is really great about the strong ingroup/outgroup perspective of television and how it feeds an action/methodical work paradigm that eventually makes the main characters the infallible, victory-through-action doers of things that are morally flawless and beset by inferiors.

But certainly, there’s no cultural consequence of that being pumped over the airwaves for decades.

Certainly.

Apparently, Denise Crosby is Bing Crosby’s granddaughter, but that’s a whole capital-“T” Thing. Night Court did not have a spin-off, though it shared two characters–Bailiff “Bull” Shannon and Judge Margaret W. Wilbur (played by Florence Stanley)–with “My Two Dads.”

The Beige and The Bold is available on iTunes, Stitcher, and other podcasting platforms. It updates Monday mornings at 2:00 AM ET / 1:00 CT. Mostly. Sometimes it updates a month later because the forgotten episodes fit into the gaps in the posting schedule.
