Episode 95: See-It or Skip-It: TOS S1

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN!

Many of our listeners have made it clear that they LOVE our See-It or Skip-It episodes. We love doing them, so this week we decided to do something that may ruffle a few Tarkelian Bat feathers! We are going to give our take on Season 1 of the show that started it all: The Original Series!

How could ANYONE say that an episode of TOS is a Skip-It? Well you may be surprised to see what we think. Season 1 has a huge amount of episodes, 29 in all, and we will get the breakdown of each story-line, and give you our thoughts on why it is worth watching, or one that you can vaporize with your hand phaser!

To make things even more interesting, we are welcoming our good friend and Star Trek Continues Co-Producer, Kasey Shafsky to moderate the discussion! With three crazy TOS die hard fans involved in the discussion, things might get even more crazy than the Beta III Red Hour!

Plus, we have some amazing updates on the Deep Space 9 documentary “What We Left Behind,” a new Klingon beverage may soon be joining us on the podcast when we record, and a touching tribute to our beloved Scotty, Jimmy Doohan, who would have turned 97 this past week.

So, sit back, grab your glass of Tranya and enjoy Episode 95 of Trek Geeks–Your Independent Star Trek Podcast.

Episode 58: See-it or Skip-It

VOYAGER: SEASON ONE

See-it or Skip-It: Voyager, Season 1This week, we take a look at the first season of Star Trek: Voyager!

It’s no secret that Bill hasn’t been the biggest fan of Voyager, and he’s even attempted his own “Voyager Challenge” to finally get through the series.  We thought it might be easier to discuss each season and decide which episodes that you should watch and which ones you can safely avoid in a new feature called, “See-It or Skip-It” and we’ll take on the freshman season of Voyager first!

Debuting January 16, 1995, Voyager held great promise as the first Star Trek series to launch a television network. Its first season had sixteen episodes and we’ll take a look at each one telling you if you should See-It (because it truly matters in the overall arc, there is important character development, or it’s just a phenomenal episode) or whether you should Skip-It (because it doesn’t impact the overall story, it’s a weak stand-alone episode, or it’s just flat out bad).

Which Season 1 episodes will we love? Which ones will we agree on, and WHY? Eventually, we’ll do this for every season of every series, but we start today in the Delta Quadrant where we’ll be keeping a strict accounting of the photon torpedoes and paying close attention to the level of suffering endured by Ensign Harry Kim. (We’re willing to bet it’s more than Miles O’Brien, but time will tell!)

Plus, we’ll talk about the latest news in the Star Trek universe from our friends at TrekNews.net, and don’t forget about our iTunes Review Giveaway where you could win a $25 gift card to Amazon.com just for writing a review!

It’s Episode 58 and you most definitely should NOT “Skip-It!”
