We give you double the commentary this week, as we finish our celebration of Q by watching his first appearance in The Next Generation pilot “Encounter at Farpoint”! Marvel at the man-skirts, listen to Chris’s overly-excited battle bridge theme song, and cringe at McCoy’s space-racism!
In Albert Camus’s essay The Myth of Sisyphus, the philosopher says “There is but one truly serious philosophical problem, and that is suicide.” Should a person who wishes to die be allowed to take their own life? This question has vexed humanity since the dawn of civilization, and is the subject of this week’s episode “Death Wish”. This week your humble hosts tackle this question with all the respect and aplomb that it deserv—who are we kidding, we get drunk and talk about how weird Q’s lips look.
The Q-love continues this week as we check in with the bizarre Robin Hood themed episode “Qpid”! This week we learn that Picard does a mean Riker impression, how adulthood is like a video game, and watch Picard literally murder a man. Pour a stiff drink and join us!
We’re back with a new month’s worth of episodes! This month we snap our fingers and summon our four favorite Q episodes along with a special guest host! We kick it off this week with the classic “Deja Q”, the episode that brought us such delights as Picard’s Facepalm, Data’s Laughter, and a naked John de Lancie!
