Podcast 11: Rapping Season 2 - minus the rapping

We have come to the end of the second season of Star Trek the Next Generation and our egos continue to swell. This was a vast improvement on season 1 and both Joey & I really enjoyed the episodes which the length of the previous podcasts will bear out. Since we know you enjoy listening to us as much as we enjoy talking, we decided to do a few lists and recaps to point out some of the highlights as we did with season 1. Enjoy.

This podcast covers episodes 20-22 of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Season 2. As this is the end of Season 2 there is no special guest.

Various topics discussed in this podcast include:
    "Probing" through space
    Joey has no faith in anyone
    Suspended Animation: Is it possible?
    Roy Brocksmith = Good Actor
    Peter has to restrain Joey as he geeks out over B5
    "The Urge to Compete"
    Joey says Peter was right
    Geordi is the only one who can look out a window
    We Hate Shades of Grey (the episode, not the color)
