Star Trek The Original Series Rewatch: "Wink of an Eye"
After an enforced hiatus due to moving, the TOS Rewatch is back with "Wink of an Eye." Gives a whole new meaning to Kirk being fast-moving...

An excerpt:
Worse, McCoy comes up with a cure for the acceleration, and at no point does anyone think to mention this to Deela. Spock doesn’t even say he has it until after Deela and Rael beam down. Which makes you wonder what, exactly, Kirk intended to do with himself and Spock for the rest of their lives while functioning at high speeds. But more fundamental than that, why didn’t anyone mention this possible cure to the Scalosians, which might have solved at least some of their problems? The best way for this episode to end would be for our heroes to respond to the Scalosians’ attack on them with compassion and help. Instead, they just send them home with a finger-wagging.
