Cinema Smorgasbord – You Don’t Know Dick – Star Trek: Deep Space Nine “Past Tense” (/w Adrianna Gober)

On this episode of YOU DON’T KNOW DICK we’re boldly going where no podcast has gone before with Dick Miller in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine two-parter ‘Past Tense’. Wildly considered one of the best (and most prescient) episodes of the series, it looks at the state of cities in the far off future of 2024 and how struggling people are carted off to walled off ‘sanctuaries’, and one of the people guarding these sanctuaries is none other than Dick Miller. Joining us on this trek across the stars is our Bartel Me Something Good podcast co-host (and Trekkie) Adrianna Gober, who makes the case of DS9 being the best of all Star Treks, and is utterly baffled by the choice to watch a Rod Stewart music video (also featuring Dick Miller). A good time was had by all. CHECK IT OUT!
