Standard Orbit 108: Chasing Crazy Bones Through The Time Thing / by Drew Stewart

The City on the Edge of Forever Commentary.

Sometimes you have to save the best for last. In this episode of Standard Orbit, Mike and Drew do a commentary for arguably the best episode of the entire franchise, "The City on the Edge of Forever." We debate if it is actually the best episode, and if you should show it to someone as a good example of what Star Trek is. We also talk about the early drafts compared to the final episode, debate which Terminator movie is the worst, if Magic Mike is Boogie Nights For Babies, and how you can't second guess every choice you make.
