Star Trek The Original Series Rewatch: "Spock's Brain"
Brain and brain, what is brain???? The TOS Rewatch tries to convince you that "Spock's Brain" isn't the worst episode of Star Trek ever. (Don't worry, I don't argue that it's actually good or anything crazy like that.....)

An excerpt:
Besides, there’s one thing that this episode has that it doesn’t get anywhere near enough credit for: the scene on the bridge where Kirk, Sulu, Uhura, and Chekov put their heads together to try to figure out where Kara has taken Spock’s gray matter. Usually when stuff like this has to get done, it’s just Spock sucking all the air out of the room and doing it himself while the rest of the crew sits there and pushes buttons and says, “Aye aye, sir,” a lot. This scene, though, does a wonderful job of showing the teamwork of the crew that’s been in rare evidence since the earliest days of season one—and it’s also an interesting preview of the more ensemble-directed spinoffs.

You've got a stray blockquote end tag. Maybe it should be the /a?

The episode is quite right in having the class-M planets at Sigma Draconis, which actually is a relatively nearby and broadly Sun-like star. They got that right.

The rest, well.
