Random Question \o/ What's your favorite TOS episode?? 😊
MMMMBOY! I’m GLAD YOU ASKED!!!!!
DID SOMEONE SAY
THIS EPISODE. FUCK. YOU KNOW??? THIS EPISODE???? WHERE SPOCK FREAKS OUT BECAUSE JIM IS IN DANGER??? WHERE THE ENTIRE POINT OF STAR TREK IS COMMUNICATED IN FIFTY MINUTES OF PURE GAY DELIGHT AND MEANINGFUL ALLEGORIES???? WHERE THEY LEARN TO COMMUNICATE WITH A CREATURE SO ENTIRELY UNLIKE THEMSELVES THAT THE MERE FACT THEY CAN COMMUNICATE WITH IT IS NOTHING SHORT OF A MIRACLE (thank you, Spock). WHERE THERE’S A MOMENT WHEN JIM WANTS TO BE ANGRY WITH SPOCK AND HE PHYSICALLY CAN’T BECAUSE SPOCK IS SO CUTE WITH HIS PROBABILITIES AND STATISTICS????
I’m SO sorry for the capslock but I cannot cannot cannot tell you how important this episode is to me. It encapsulates every single thing I love about the series. It has beautiful moments between my boys, a beautiful message, and ends on such a positive note. If I could play this episode on loop for the rest of my life and never watch anything else, I would be content.
Thank you so much for asking. I will NEVER pass up an opportunity to talk about The Devil in the Dark.
