Watchalong “The Royale” S2 E12 of Star Trek TNG

 

You know those old spy movies where there’s also a classy casino filled with wealthy but shady characters?  Everyone is in a tuxedo or a cocktail dress drinking dry martinis and oozing out sexual tension?  Well, that’s not what this is.  

In this entry, our hosts take another look at the season 2 episode of Star Trek TNG, The Royale and find the good, the bad, and the poorly written.  It’s an amusing chat with nerdy friends!

Watchalong “Contagion” S2 E14 of Star Trek TNG

The term “contagion” might not be a very welcomed one in 2020 but back in 1989 it was referring to a pretty cool episode of Star Trek The Next Generation.  

Come and watch this classic along with us!

TNG Rewatch – S2 E9 “Measure of a Man”

We’re finally up to one of the all time best episodes of Star Trek!  Measure of a Man is a great Data episode with a solid sci-fi premise.  It’s also required viewing before you watch Star Trek Picard.  🙂
