G & T Show 278 – Spocko

And let’s get started, okay?

Although some of these links are a bit out of date, we are getting over the fact that the show fell into a wormhole. So people, please have a little charity, as we were in the Mirror Universe and Steve had a goatee.

So on with the links!

Link Fest!

So speaking of controversy, Star Trek’s Alice Eve branded racist for having her hair styled in cornrows as she holidays in Jamaica. I can’t even. Seriously, was this someone being offended for the sake of being offended?
