It’s happening! We have arrived at The Next Generation and can’t be more excited! Prepare yourselves for a shocker when we get to the ratings next week. What did you think of this pilot episode, introducing grumpy Picard, quiet Worf, brave Geordi, unintentionally creepy Riker, passionate Yar, vulnerable Troi and the gang?
Join us as we conclude our coverage of the Star Trek V: The Final Frontier with guest-host, Caitlin Durante of the Bechdel Cast. We’ve added the @bechdelcast ‘nipple rating’ to concepts, entertainment and sexiness, to judge the movie on its representation of women, and Caitlin compares it unfavourably to Cats. Get ready for a bumpy ride!
We’re joined by special guest Caitlin Durante from the Bechdel Cast to cover this low point for The Original Series Movies. Managing a slashed budget, writers’ strike and special effects nightmares, Shatner tries to save it all by Mary Sue-ing the heck out of Kirk, but Nimoy and Kelley are not having it!
Special thanks to @caitlindurante and the Bechdel Cast!
Come back in time with us to the year 2019 when we created this episode for BBC America’s Best of Spock Marathon. Ahhh Spock! So happy to have you back. Even if you are a pon-farring teen with no memories of your best friends. They’ll sort it all out somehow, right?
We’re back to wrap up our Khan-tastic two-parter! Over on Patreon.com/rachelwatchesstartrek there has been controversy about Chris’ illogical ratings for this episode. Some even think we should have gone higher!
We are 100 episodes old! Thank you patrons & listeners for making it so.
It’s time for a stand-out Trek classic. Could it be 10s across the board? Join us for ggrrrrKhaaaaaaannnn!
It’s time to bring the movie home. Rachel finds out who Vgr is and is impressed by its real-life ancestors. Chris spills the gossip behind the scenes. Join us!
Rachel and Chris go to the movies and embark on an adventure like no other! 42% on Rotten Tomatoes. They call it ‘Star Trek the Motionless Picture’ and ‘Where Nomad Has Gone Before’. William Shatner saw it and thought it was the sure end of the franchise. Here we share the story, background, gossip and rate it for concepts, entertainment and sexiness.
