Just made it through this sup… AWESOME! Thanks!
I know we’re 10+ years from Into Darkness, but I will say… it ain’t that bad. I disagree with Khan… but the movie had me, it really did and hearing Bob’s take on it… I get the choices better now.
I like STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS, it grabbed me too and it didn’t let go. It doesn’t have the repeat rewatch value that TREK 2009 does but it’s a very worthy follow up. Love hearing the viewpoint of one of its’ writers.
My opinion stands.. there is a good movie in there, but the misuse of Khan, and the blatant fan service ruins it. This episode remains one of my favorite episodes, and I respect Bob for taking this criticism head on. It helped to understand what the intention was. In the end, I think they shoehorned Khan in because they just wanted to use him that badly.
He was an awesome sport about it. Still so grateful that he did that much of a deep discussion with us.
And kudos to you and Ken John.. you asked though, but fair questions, but certainly respectful toward him. Made for an awesome podcast.
