Cause U knew I would
brain and brain; what is brain!?!?!?!?!
Am I okay in treating this episode as a deliberate parody of bad Star Trek on behalf of the show itself?
Also, re Kirk’s reasoning (“If they took his brain out, they’ll be able to put it back in”) won’t make him popular in an obstetrics ward…
It may not have been intended that way at the time, but certainly the “camp” value lends itself to self-conscious parody. Either way it’s cool.
