This episode we're stranded on a lonely planet with only an unconvincing plastic spear to keep us company as JG and Kev hunker down to survive "The Galileo Seven".
 
Does the episode deserve a classic status? How do the production effects work out (you may gather from the opening sentence - not all perfectly!)? And does the character work stand the test of time?
 
Plus in Recommendations we have a 90s movie, a bang-up-to-date movie and a TV show.

It's time for a bit of a break this episode as Kev and JG take a little Shore Leave. And along for what will doubtless prove to be a relaxing time with absolutely no large bunnies or inexplicable deaths is Anthony Strand!
How do the comic elements stack up against the drama? How goes 60s sexism this episode? And can anyone praise DeForest Kelley more?
Plus in Recommendations we have a documentary series, a movie and an extended discussion about Doctor Who's final Jodie Whittaker episode, "The Power Of The Doctor" (OK this bit is normally kept mysterious - well, "mysterious" - but dammit (Jim) it's a good conversation!)

There can be few episodes of television more well-known than Balance of Terror, and few which have contributed quite as much to popular culture. So this week, it's time to tackle an episode that really does live up to the title of "all-time classc".
But does the episode deserve that reputation? Can William Shatner manage to carry the dramatic heft of the episode? And can Star Trek easily absorb influeces that go far beyond the western?
Plus in Recommendations we have a pair of classic horror movies, some anime and a comic-book TV show.

It's time for something a little classical and fruity this time on Talking Trek, as JG and Kev tackle The Conscience of the King with Alice Ebenhoe along for the performance.
Do Shakespeare and space mix? Just how melodramatic can things get? And how satisfactory is "she's mad" as an episode ending? Plus in Recommendations we have a TV drama, a movie and a sitcom.

This episode we tackle TOS's only two-parater as JG and Kev take a stroll around "The Menagerie", with the help of Paul Coughlan!
How does the two-part framing device work? Do we REALLY believe Spock is going to betray all he stands for? And how does the original footage from The Cage compare to the newer footage shot around it? Plus in Recommendations we have an Apple TV show, an audio drama and a BBC TV show.
