It's strange, but Derek and I rarely fight during bad episodes. "Spock's Brain" is an exception to that rule. I'm saying it's bad. He's saying I'm not saying it's bad strongly enough.
He might be right. We usually mention bad episodes at least having good bones, but at best this one has some broken bones inside of a mutilated flesh bag.
The Beastie Boy's song referring to the "pinch on the neck from Mr. Spock" was "Intergalactic." The one where they dressed up in Star Trek uniforms and fought was ""Ch-Check it out."
Finally, the Semisonic song I was talking about was "Never You Mind," which is a personal favorite.
