17 to 01: Friday's Child

I never realized how erratic Eleen's character is in this episode until Derek calls it out. I still love this episode because we add pillow throws to the WWF moves which have so far solely comprised Kirk's fighting style. 

"Friday's Child" also has the galaxy's deadliest slide whistle, which is...a thing you can say about this episode.

Stockholm Syndrome comes from a 1973 bank robbing hostage situation. You can guess where.

Episodes of 17 to 01 are available on iTunes. It updates Thursdays at 01:00 AM CT and Friday nights at 8:30 PM ET / 9:30 CT. We're also amazingly on Stitcher.

So many BattleTech things to say about this episode.

That bit at the end with Spock, I wonder if the audience is meant to wonder how much of Spock's irritation is about Leonard and James being insufferable, and how much is about getting left out of the kid's name.

I try not to hold back on the Battletech references (they're rare enough), but I admit I dropped the ball on this one.

Meh, they're obvious enough here there's no point in calling them out.

Running into a surprising amount of stuff in Doctor Who--not surprising for FASA, I guess, considering they had a Doctor Who RPG license--but I had no idea that StarCraft's Zerg are just about wholly taken from old Who serials.
