Wincing at “Wink of an Eye”

If today is Thursday, then this must be the Star Trek Re-watch! Over at TOR.COM, fellow Trek-nerd Dayton Ward and I sharpen our rhetorical knives and carve a few chunks out of the third-season original series episode Wink of an Eye.” You remember: pretty people in silver pajamas, led by a gal in half a dress, who live in hyper-time and sound like mosquitoes.

I won’t lie to you, friends—this was not a highlight of the series. If you don’t believe me, you can watch it for free on the CBS website (U.S. residents only, sorry).

On the other hand, if you like people in silver pajamas who slip roofies into your drink, then you’re gonna LOVE this…

For those of you just joining our train wreck of a weekly column, here’s a recap of what Dayton and I have recapped and analyzed so far:

  1. Spock’s Brain
  2. The Enterprise Incident
  3. The Paradise Syndrome
  4. And the Children Shall Lead
  5. Is There in Truth No Beauty?
  6. Spectre of the Gun
  7. Day of the Dove
  8. For the World Is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky
  9. The Tholian Web
  10. Plato’s Stepchildren

Remember to leave a comment on the TOR.COM articles to let us and our corporate masters benefactors know you were there. They like that sort of thing.

Until next week, beware of Scalosian blondes who slip roofies into your coffee.
