- I had some free time so I decided to watch the first episode of season three of Star Trek: the infamous "Spock's Brain". People always say it's the worst episode of TOS, but honestly, it wasn't that bad. Granted, I haven't seen every episode of the series yet, but when compared to what I've seen so far, I can say that there are worst episodes than "Spock's Brain".

Yes, the main point of the plot involves an alien race removing Spock's brain so they can use it to run the systems of their underground city, and yes, Spock's body lurches around with a fetching motor control device on his head, but it's not the weirdest plot ever. How often do we see stories where humans are used like batteries to power something? I think the episode gets a bad rap because everyone just giggles when they hear the words "Spock's Brain" and it's hard to be objective. Seriously, I wanted to laugh each time the phrase "Spock's brain" was used in dialogue.

This episode definitely falls into the category of "so bad it's good" rather than "oh my god, that was so boring I wanted to rip my eyes out".

- I finally got around to finishing my Jessica Jones infinity scarf, so I'll be going as her to my friend's Halloween party. Such an easy costume; I love it. I'll definitely have to wear it again during one of the days of the comic book expo.

- I've been working a temp job for the past couple of weeks and my manager said people totally dress up on Halloween, so I get to go into work in costume on Monday. That'll be fun. This will be the first time I've worn a costume to work. I'm thinking I'll go with my Fourth Doctor cosplay, since it's quirky enough that it doesn't look like my usual work clothes, but it's also comfortable to sit in. My co-workers and I have chatted about Doctor Who, so they will totally recognize the outfit.

- I've been so busy, I never got around to writing about the rest of Luke Cage. Sadly, I didn't enjoy it as much as Jessica Jones or season one of Daredevil. It was definitely a slow burner. Even towards the end, I didn't feel a huge sense of urgency.

Like, Luke's fight with Diamondback was kind of underwhelming. They punch each other and then Luke lays out Diamondback with one big punch. At one point, Luke eyes the power source on the back of Diamondback's suit and you'd think he would be smart enough to rip it off, but nope. Even Luke's flashback centric episode, which every Marvel Netflix show has done so far, was slow. I know everything can't be as flashy as Daredevil, which has some wicked fight scenes, but at least give me some personal drama that's super compelling.

Iron Fist is up next and then The Defenders. I'm really looking forward to The Defenders. DC has had some great success teaming up the Berlantiverse superheroes, so it's about time Marvel got in on that action.

This is how I feel about Timelash, incidentally :D

I wish I could say I liked or disliked "Timelash", but I can't remember it. I may have to watch it again if it's "Spock's Brain" calibre. :-)

A friend of mine really hates "The Paradise Syndrome", the bf dislikes "Return of the Archons", and I despise "Turnabout Intruder". "Spock's Brain" isn't the worse, but it's certainly near the bottom.

Yay for a Four costume!

"The Paradise Syndrome" is next in the cue. The preview image is of Kirk dressed like an Indian. I don't have high hopes for the episode. I haven't seen "Turnabout Intruder" yet, but I didn't care for "The Return of the Archons". It was kind of boring.

Fourth Doctor costume was really warm for the office. I swear we have no air conditioning in our little corner of the floor.

3rd season TOS had it's ups and downs, mostly cuz the 2 Gene were no longer producing.


As a DW costumer in the Deep South, I need A/C!
