retsuko: (spoilers!)
On Friday, Yebisu and I decided that in honor of Leonard Nimoy, we'd do an original series rewatch instead of Next Gen. And what a treat that was! I had forgotten a lot of the details about these particular episodes, and they were both good Spock episodes; I even found that I didn't mind Kirk that much after all this time (and Futurama viewing.)

The Devil in the Dark: No Kill I )

Mirror, Mirror: I don't threaten, I merely state facts. )

Awesome-est moment in both episodes: I had forgotten the storytelling conceit that Kirk, Spock, and Bones have a little summation on the bridge at the end of both of these episodes, and these scenes were really good. Spock got some funny zingers, and the friendship (or more, whatever you want to see there) was well-expressed and rather touching.

Least awesome-est moment: Too many dicks on the dance floor. Seriously: there is only one woman in "The Devil in the Dark" and she doesn't even get a speaking line; while there are two women in "Mirror, Mirror", only Uhura gets any real agency. I'm glad that Next Gen, for all its contrivances and weird bits rectifies this problem to mostly very good effect.

Most Ridiculous Thing from my notes: "Coffee break! Eyebrow!" & "Semantics~~~~~"
