A big thank you to Ann Merin for commissioning this podcast on Chaos on the Bridge, William Shatner’s 2014 documentary that peeks behind the scenes of the first few years of Star Trek: The Next Generation with cast interviews describing tumultuous power dynamics both in and out of the writers room. Frankly, it’s a must-see movie for fans of TNG and now we’ve finally seen it. Give the podcast a listen to find out what we thought.
Special thanks to Josh “Anubus21” Wilson for the conclusion of his three podcast trilogy (previously Screamers and PCU), Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Arguably the greatest Trek film of all time, and featuring the unquestionably greatest Trek movie villain, Wrath holds up like a champ. Featuring terrifying ear worms, a broad range of quality Shatnerian acting, Chekov screaming, and Ricardo Montalbán’s impressive old man chest, we try to look at the film through both critical and nostalgic lenses.
