By Any Other Name
What is in a name? What is in a title? Zach and Ken explore the more interesting episode titles of the original series and "try" to correlate the names to the plots of the episodes. In some cases; they're an easy match. In other cases; there isn't a direct link as to what the episode was about. In a very humbling moment for Ken--confusion on a title and actual episode becomes apparent. No editing here-Ken owns his error and makes for some good fun at his own expense.
Zach and Ken explore all the more interesting titles and ask for your input as to what some of these titles mean to you and how you have been interpreting them. Ken and Zach put out a host of theories and reveal the history of some of these lines from great literature.
