Movie Reviews

Two great ones
David Bonesteel | Fresno, CA United States | 05/08/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I love these two episodes.

"The Man Trap" scared the hell out of me when I first saw it as a kid. It seems that a lot of people don't care for this episode, but I've always found it supremely creepy--Dr. Crater all alone on that dead, lonely planet with the hideous creature that killed his wife, deluding himself that he has some kind of personal relationship with it. Despite the primitive special effects and cheesy music, TOS managed to produce some pretty scary episodes. The creature design here is exceptional.

In "The Naked Time," a virus results in intoxication and poor impulse control, causing various characters to act out in ways that are very revealing of character. This episode is sometimes quite funny, but it's also very eerie as our cast of characters struggles to maintain self-control while Lt. Riley croons, "I'll take you home again, Kathleen" over the PA system.

Not the Best Episodes but Still Enjoyable!

"The "Man Trap" has an interesting premise: how far should we be willing to tolerate suffering and death so as to ensure the survival of any species. In this episode, a scientist seems to be willing to go very far, accepting and forgiving the killing of his own wife by what turns out to be the last creature of its kind that drains all the salt out of its victims. This same scientist eventually pays with his own life. The second episode on this disc, "The Naked Time" is clearly the weaker of the two and in a plot rather similar to "The Enemy Within", we see a chemical causing less favourable aspects of the crew's personality coming to the surface until the good doctor is able to find an antidote. If you are looking at collecting only the best episodes, don't get this volume as it's definitely among the weaker ones of the series."
