Planet of the fully dressed S&M babes!
25 July 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode begins with Koenig landing on a planet that might be habitable. Then, suddenly, a man materializes from the machine--only to choke and die! Koenig is taken prisoner and his brain is probed by some weird ladies who appear to be into S&M--whipping prisoners for kicks and acting pretty much like fully dressed characters in a weird porno flick! The nasty kinky whip folks are only women and they are prison wardens for some sort of prison complex. Most, but not all, of the residents are guys who are tormented seemingly for no good reason.

A bit later, an Eagle approaches the planet looking for Koenig and the other crewman (who has died). The angry lady in charge of the penal colony initially is pretty hostile but relents when they are informed by the Eagle crew that they won't take no for an answer. Then, she's sweet as can be and plans on showing them the dead bodies of the missing crew. The evidence they are shown looks pretty convincing and the humans return home. It sure appears as if Koenig is doomed to remain behind on the S&M world of angry bimbos. Can Koenig escape or will be be yet another victim of these crazy ladies and their 'hunt'? Well, I can at least give this episode credit for being somewhat original--though it is a bit reminiscent of the two Gene Roddenberry pilots "Gensis II" and "Planet Earth"--one having a plot involving folks in a sadistic society who torture for pleasure and the other involving an angry amazonian society that dominates men. And, you do get to see Koenig slug hot women--something you don't see every day! But, unfortunately, the show is also pretty silly--with silly music, over-the-top costumes and a plot that is just plain confusing and weird. Not great, but strangely watchable for its kitsch value.
