Last night the Squirrel Boy and I finally started season 3 of STAR TREK: TOS with the immortal "Spock's Brain." There had been some less-than-stellar episodes in the second season ("The Apple," "The Gamesters of Triskelion"), but nothing nearly as abysmal as this. Every moment felt wrong and ill-conceived, from the utter earnestness of its absurd premise, to the 60s hairdryer learning machine, to the TWO complete brain surgeries done without mussing the patient's hair. And we won't get into its assumptions about gender roles. Still, I would buy a t-shirt with the quote, "Brain and brain! What is brain?"
