This is famous, believe it or not, for having the first *famous "interracial kiss" (There were actually other ones, but this is the one that is always credited) Yep, Kirk kisses Uhura... and it is awesome.

Other than that cool little tidbit... it is a really fun episode. I LOVE the Little Person Alexander. The episodes moral message is "It doesn't matter your size, shape, or color." So I like the social commentary element A LOT.

Also has the ABSOLUTELY HYSTERICAL "Dancing Kirk and Spock Scene." I nearly fall off the couch laughing everytime I watch it. And there is so much more... you haven't LIVED until you've heard Spock sing, or seen Kirk act like a Horse, or see Kirk hit himself, and try to eat his tongue. It is the funniest episode. I don't know how they kept a straight face through it.

Definitely on the "You MUST see it if you want to know ANYTHING about Star Trek" list.

Kind of an interesting story-line. Mainly I think they wanted to play with their camera's slow-motion ability. Not a terribly exciting episode, but it is ok for an entertaining evening.
Actually has a fairly risque' scene. Kirk and lady... alone in bedroom. Scene shifts elsewhere. We return to see... Kirk put on his boot! GASP!

Movie Reviews

A classic that's one of my favorites!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Plato's Stepchildren is one of my top four favorite episodes, along with Space Seed, the City on the Edge of Forever, and Mirror Mirror. I've been waiting a long time for it to be released on DVD and am very happy that it will be soon. It also has historic value in the fact that the first inter-racial kiss on national television took place in that episode. Don't let overly sarcastic commentary spoil your fun!"

"Plato's Stepchildren Aliens with ESP powers control the TOS crew. It is somewhat unfair...I never got to kiss Uhura.
Wink of an Eye...We know Kirk likes fast women. This time he gets one in hyperacceleration."
One of the best Star Treks!

"I absolutely love this episode! Of course, this may have something to do with the fact that I'm a huge Spock fan, and love to see him act more human, which is rare. But there are also a lot of other great things about this episode. It's really fun, although you should probably watch it twice if you want to experience the fun in the silliness as much as possible, since you're worrying too much the first time about whether they'll ever get out! And, of course, the show itself took great strides with the showing of the first inter-racial kiss, between William Shatner and Nichelle Nichols, not to mention the one shared by Leonard Nimoy and Majel Barrett! But that's really what Star Trek is all about, isn't it? "To go where no one has gone before' and in this episode, they did that with a lot of fun involved."
