Star Trek The Original Series Rewatch: "Is There In Truth No Beauty?"
Love is blind, and so is Miranda Jones. The TOS Rewatch asks "Is There In Truth No Beauty?"

An excerpt:
You might read those three previous paragraphs and wonder why I like the episode then, but it’s for this reason: at no point anywhere in the episode does Jones take any of their shit. She gently deflects Kirk’s (multiple) flirtations, mostly just ignores McCoy, and responds not even a little bit to Marvick’s unasked for kiss. And after Kirk treats her despicably, when she would have every right to just walk out on him or throw up her hands and say that there’s nothing to be done, she still went back in to telepathically save Spock’s life. We don’t get a Helen Noel or a Marla McGivers or a Carolyn Palamas or a Romulan commander, who all lose their professionalism to some degree or other due to meeting a hunka hunka burnin’ love (Jones, in fact, scoffs at the very notion, thanks to both her blindness and her telepathy).

Current Mood: geeky geeky
Current Music: "Hey Jude" by the Beatles
