When a legendary Vulcan diplomat starts acting strangely ahead of an important conference, the Enterprise crew chalks it up to old age. But when his brand of mental disability becomes contagious, glass tables around the ship aren't the only thing in jeopardy. Can we workshop a worse throw-to-title scene? Is this episode "canonical Ghostbusters 2"? What happens to a kid at a bar fight? It's the episode where we learn, "Never mind-meld with your heroes."

Minority Korner

It's that time of year again! Yes the Emmy's but most importantly it's the MK Black Suspense Movie Review, as every September Hollywood releases what should be a Lifetime movie to the big screen. The reviews are in: Save your money and watch last years amazing Perfect Stranger, and enjoy our Spoiler Review of 'When The Bough Breaks' or what it should've been called 'Go Tell Your Wife AKA Morris Messes Up'. But first, James might be on Mariah Carey levels of celebrity after his hit San Francisco Show, where like Mariah he doesn't know JLO. It's a historical Emmy's because Black*ish is nominated for Outstanding comedy, the first Black show since 1985... so apparently the Oscars ain't the only thing that are so white. James has some facts and figures on this surprising situation. I mean come on! Where's Urkell's Emmy!? Nnekay is throwing us some history with medical advancements created by Black surgeons in perilous times. Thank you Black doctors for so many life saving techniques and practices. You probably had no idea. Well that's why we're here! Also are you getting down on the Get Down- you will be after James' stark raving mad review (and he's only an episode in).
