Episode 277: This Bad Boy Can Fit So Much Filler

October 11, 2018

[Shatner voice intensifies] Spoooock! 

Yes, we're up to that legendary moment on Star Trek: The Next Generation, wherein Leonard Nimoy drops in for a two-parter that the writers only had three-quarters of an episode's worth of story for! Yes, "Unification," has some fantastic moments, but this thing's chock full of pointless, time-filling nonsense. For example, every single scene aboard the Enterprise. Also, though, we have "A Matter of Time," which is a hidden gem of an episode. Elsewhere, we continue our look at The Wire, with its second episode, "The Detail."
