This week, comedy writer JM McNab joins the show to talk about comedy in Star Trek and why seeking out new life isn’t always a laugh riot. During the discussion, we talk about letting the air out of the franchise, what constitutes “punching down”, being a fish out of ’50s water, the loving parody of “Chief O’Brien At Work”, Planet Scotland, Sh*t My Captain Says, open mic night in the mess hall, “Tea, Earl Grey, Hot Take”, and whether or not Bev’s sex ghost holds a cure for cancer!
The clown can stay but the Ferengi in the gorilla suit has to go!
