TOS: Wolf in the Fold
This episode is terrible on every possible level—orientalism, sexism, plot holes, and just being damn stupid—and has very little to redeem it. I mean, right from the opening shot, you know this is going to be a clusterfuck of offensiveness. Which I guess it good, because it tells you to keep your expectations low. But it’s still hard to watch. And by the end, when there’s finally a hint of something that might be interesting, you’ve stopped caring. Oh, Scotty. You deserved better. At least everyone gets stoned at the end of the episode … everyone except for Kirk and Spock. (And me, which is why there’s not a longer recap. I couldn’t do it sober.)
