Earth has its first encounter with aliens in the vastness of space and then runs into a problem of what to do next. It's a first contact without Vulcans, Picard, or "Spirit in the Sky"...including Ryan's disappointment that it's not the version with the bombastic captain, a general admiration of the competent crew members, and a lengthy coda about things that need words. Did I leave it on because I'm lazy or because I couldn't find a clean cut? You decide...
Ryan lands another 7.5 and Richard goes for 8.5

I went to a wedding, then a birthday party, then at the last second decided to celebrate Back to the Future Day, but better late than never, right? Right?
Aaaaannyway...Ray Bradbury takes us back to Mars and reveals that Ryan doesn't know much about poetry, confuses Bradbury stories named from poems (despite his insistence, the house dying episode is a different poem...) and Richard proposes the idea of Wonder Fatigue.

More stranded aliens and another contentious doctor/commander relationship while we contemplate an intergalactic Improv Everywhere, a brief thought on a CW version, and Richard makes the case for Coneheads.

We slog through a western in space where the subtlety in allegory gives way to a giant hammer of obvious. Mistakes were made, Ryan comes dangerously close to achieving his goal, and we discuss the value of doing a bad job well.
Fives all around.
