Week Eight

I fell real short this week. With I was supposed to be done with The Original Series on Wednesday and be 6-8 episodes into The Animated Series. I ended up playing Anthem too much and didn't finish the Original Series until Saturday morning. I was able to watch a few of The Animated Series though. The next week will be interesting as I should be able to finish The Animated Series by Thursday but then I have 4 movies to watch, each around 2 hours long.

For the last half of season 3, one of my favorite episodes was "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield". I remember this episode fairly well from when I saw it as a child. It opened my eyes to the issue of racism, and how so much hate and biases can be caused by something as trivial as skin color. I also enjoyed "Requiem for Methuselah" and "The Savage Curtain".

Both the first episodes of The Animated Series have been fun to watch too. I was expecting a lot of repeated animations and dialog, but so far it is like a compressed episode of The Original Series. Voice acting is pretty good and while it is 70s animation, it does allow for more interesting aliens and effects.

This week only one red shirt and one blue shirt died. I have noticed that officer deaths are actually not a common thing in The Original Series. Only a small handful of episodes created this meme.
