Andy Watches Amok Time!

Good evening Loyal Mockers and welcome to a minute by minute look at the classic Star Trek episode ‘Amok Time’. Spock gets horny and it causes problems for everyone on the Enterprise! Let’s take a look at this delightful tale of Vulcan hormones and high councils…

00:00…Kirk doesn’t need to take the elevator, he climbs up the stairs like a boss…

00:01…Nurse Chapel has always harbored feelings for Mr. Spock (see first season’s ‘The Naked Time’) and tries to get him out of his out of his grouchy mood by making him some plomeek soup…Spock tells her to pack her knives and tosses the bowl against the wall and rudely tells Kirk he needs to go to Vulcan…

00:04…Kirk and Spock hashing it out and the Enterprise is re-directed to Vulcan…Spock appears ready to shank Kirk with a butter knife if he didn’t get his way…

00:06…C’mon, Altair VI, why the fuck are you moving up your inauguration ceremony seven days? Now the Enterprise can’t drop Spock off to Vulcan!!

00:07…The crew’s beds don’t look very comfortable…

00:08…This is the first episode to feature Mr. Chekhov and he is wearing an awful looking wig…Spock changes the ship’s course back to Vulcan behind Kirk’s back and is acting mighty illogically…

00:10…Spock is ordered to sick bay for a full physical examination and McCoy discovers a huge imbalance of body functions that along with emotional pressures will kill him within 7-8 days…

00:14…Awkward conversation as Spock explains to Kirk that he is in heat…It is the Pon Farr, the time of mating! Every seven years a vulcan must return to his home world and meet up with his arranged betrothed…

00:17…You can just see instant Chekhov/Sulu chemistry!

00:18…Spock smashes the video monitor in his quarters, looks like they make those things out of clay in the future…

00:20…Kirk is defying the slick white hair of Admiral Komack and is re-re-re-directing the Enterprise back to Vulcan…

00:21…Nurse Chapel stalks her way into Spock’s quarters in a really creepy scene that ends with Spock requesting the very soup he threw against the wall earlier…

00:23…Enterprise arrives and Spock’s fiance appears on the viewscreen, he is doing pretty well for himself…

00:24…Nice, the special edition effects add a nice atmosphere after Kirk, Spock and McCoy beam down to the planet’s surface…this was the first and only classic Trek episode that visited Vulcan…

00:26…The ceremony of koon-ut-kal-if-fee begins and T’Pau, the only person to ever turn down a seat on the Federation council, is carried in on a judge’s throne…she is disappointed that Spock brought out-worlders with him…

00:29…Bitch chooses kal-if-fee, The Challenge instead of just agreeing to marry Spock which confuses everyone and drives our favorite Vulcan deep into Plak-Tow!

00:32…Bitch chooses Kirk to fight Spock!! What kind of Vulcan tradition is this??

00:34…T’Pau, supposedly this great leader, is not only going to let this fight go on, she eggs Spock on by asking him if he is human or Vulcan…

00:36…Quick cut sequence that really shows off the Vulcan bell instrument…Kirk decides to participate not knowing that the fight is to the death!

00:40…KROIKA!! Extreme battle sequence as the close friends go toe-to-toe and bash a lot of props…Pretty Lady says this is ‘terrible’…epic music as any Cable Guy fan will attest

00:43…Oh my god! Kirk is dead!! Spock strangled him with the Ahn’woon!!

00:45…Spock congratulates T’Pring for the logic she used in selecting Captain Kirk when it seems like she should be arrested for murder…Vulcans are fucked up, man…

00:47…Holy shit, Kirk is alive!! Didn’t see that one coming. McCoy saved the day with his tri-ox compound! Spock is so elated that he actually lets out a smile, much to McCoy’s delight…what a great episode, thanks for enjoying it with me!
