NX-01 Movie Night: The Court Jester.
Friendship and fellowship is important for people's general health and well-being. All of the Star Trek series have shown some sort of interaction between the members of its crew on screen in varying ways. The Next Generation had poker, Deep Space Nine had Vic's lounge, Voyager had Sandrine's and the resort program, and Enterprise had movie night. Since the invention of home video releases of films, many fans of movies have participated in an event know as "Movie Night!" People gather together in a group, watch a movie, and then discuss the film in a casual conversation. Sometimes they even go out for a slice of pie while they discuss.
In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Brandon-Shea Mutala and Patrick Devlin complete their Movie Night series of episodes with The Court Jester. We discuss the songs, the humor, snapping fingers, Murder, She Wrote. We also give a ranking for all the movies we covered on the podcast.
