Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast
83: Really Cruel Smirk

Plato’s Stepchildren Commentary With @FirstTimeTrek.

A lot of Season 3 episodes get a bad rap. Do they all deserve it? In this episode of ​Standard Orbit​, Mike and Drew are joined by Andi as she walks us through "Plato's Stepchildren", showing us that it may not be as bad as we think. We compare the episode to such diverse films as ​Airplane!Harry Potter & The Goblet of Fire, and Eyes Wide Shut​, while discovering that it's hard to draw the line between what is embarrassing for the character to do and what the actor has to do.
