Trek Thursdsay: Catspaw

#63. Catspaw
Kirk, McCoy, and Bones. Har har.
In case you forgot: It's a very special Halloween episode of Star Trek!

I guess there's some camp value in how goofy this episode is. Upon review of my original list, I actually bumped this up a few places (originally it was at #73), when I decided I'd rather watch this one again than some others I originally listed before it.

But when you take away the goofy occult theatrics (is Korob supposed to be a reference to Anton Szandor LaVey?) it's just not a particularly interesting or thoughtful story. There's no great moral dilemma or commentary on the human condition. Just the power trio versus a couple of wizards.
