This week it’s a sort of, kind of double-length episode as Scott and Brooks watch “The Menagerie” Parts 1 and 2. The background of the episode is that Gene Roddenberry took footage from the unaired pilot, “The Cage,” (which Scott and Brooks already watched), and spliced with new footage to create a supposedly brand-new episode, but, really, it’s repetitive as hell. In fact, the guys considered pulling “a Roddenberry” and simply reuse that episode of the podcast. Instead, however, they managed to spend an hour talking about how they’ve already watched this episode. Enjoy?
