Star Trek Analogies

1. I got Devilboy a box set of Mystery Science Theater 3000 DVDs for Christmas and last night, he watched Robot Monster from the first season. That was before TV’s Frank made his appearance, back in the days of Dr. Larry.  I tried to explain that Dr. Larry vanished and Frank started without much of an explanation in the second season. Devilboy thought about this and said,” So he’s like Chekov of Mystery Science?”

Yeah, I guess he is.

2. It had to happen but Devilboy checked out Star Trek V from the library. It is the equivalent of Attack of the Clones in that I have never been able to watch it all the way through. I tried to watch it but it was so bad that I did some laundry and cleaned the turtle tank. Star Trek V manages to be as bad as Attack of the Clones without Jar Jar Binks. That’s quite an achievement.
