Guilty confession: I've never really watched Star Trek before. I vaguely remember seeing this one episode with all these weird glowing rocks in a cave that paralyzed a few dudes for some reason (I think it was Kirk and Spock), but for the most part I have no reference point. Don't get me wrong - I'm sure it's a great show and everything. I just never really watched it.
Consequently, I have no idea if this video clip is dirty. I mean, sure, it SEEMS kind of dirty I guess, but this could just be what Star Trek was like most of the time and I'd have no idea - I never watched the show before, remember? Were simulated orgasms a major part of the show? Is that why Star Trek was so popular?
If I were making a sci-fi show and I wanted it to be popular, I'd try to throw in as many simulated orgasms as possible. Seems like a recipe for success if I've ever heard one. I'd also guarantee one decapitation, six fart jokes and tons of animals dressed up like people in every episode. Oh - and I'd bring back that chick with three boobs from Total Recall. Where has she been, anyway1?!
1 Answer: here and there. Isn't it weird how taking a role that becomes popularly known as "that chick with 3 boobs" can bring your career to a screeching halt? Oh, wait... no, that's actually not weird at all.
