Podcast 22: Sayonara In the Tar Tasha Yar!

Whoa! Didn't see that coming! At least those of us who haven't seen Star Trek didn't see that coming -- which is probably just one person (J.R.). The endurance of TNG season one is in its twilight. Even though these beginnings of TNG are, for the most part, a bit weak; we do discuss many risky positives. We had the death, the out of place foreshadowing episode and also the Wesley failing.

BTW, sorry about the lateness of this. Sure, we recorded this one a week ago and it's just going online now, but... well, no excuse. Hey! It gives you more of an excuse to listen live!

If you're curious about that AC/DC Star Trek parody we played in the middle of the podcast, you can download it (as well as a bunch more Star Trek parody songs) here:

So go there even though the guy totally pimps out a different Star Trek podcast. Hopefully he's not pissed that we used his song without permission.
