Star Trek: The Next Generation analysis of season 1 episode 15 (Too Short a Season)
We come back from a mini-hiatus to an episode that we had mixed opinions about. Mike enjoyed the exploration of men broken by toxic masculinity, while Nic was bored and missing her sweet baby boys. What we were definitely in agreement on was that the makeup/prosthetics and acting were lacking in this one.
The show explores several interesting themes (which it sadly never pays off) - feeling useless in old age, internalized ableism, making up for past mistakes, the hubris of white men with authority, and who deserves to live forever (or at least, get a second life).
