uninteresting filler episode
8 February 2013 | by (chicago) – See all my reviews

This is a filler episode. Magic time travel. Ooo, the late 60s and hippies were interesting and cool. We will toss in a couple younger versions of main characters. For a time travel episodes, the number of anachronisms was quite high.

I have no idea why anyone liked this episode. I have stopped re-watching it.

If you hated Star Trek 4 and the crew romping around modern earth and being out of place, you will hate this episode for the same reason.

If you loved the Enterprise crew being dorks in SF, you will love this episode. If you love watching hokey 60s flash back movies, this is for you.

How this episode made a top ten list, I will never understand.
