I love how genuinely interested and excited Skinny Pete is at this story.

I'm sure they got the quadrants wrong just to stir up a fervor on the net.

Many a movie and tv show have tried to perfectly capture the random stoner story and failed.. BB nailed it so good I'm almost convinced they cheated and they were really stoned..

From "Drunk History" comes "Star Trek: Stoned".

If ever there were a spinoff show created with useless but entertaining characters, I'd love it to star Skinny Pete and Badger

That scene perfectly demonstrates why BB is so far ahead of any other show right now. It has patience. It knows exactly how to savor the little, calm parts of their lives, to make the crazy parts carry an actual emotional impact.

Dont. Actually it was terrible.  It did make me feel like I was tripping when i saw it in the theater when i had only had a couple of beers.  When it let out there were a bunch of people on the sidewalk wearing bathrobes, drinking white russsians and bowling on the sidewalk.  Apparently there was a Big Lebowski midnight show playing next but it was an awesome "What the Fark happened to the World while I was gone" effect.

Doubling down on this comment, that scene was so farking perfect. Watching Jesse visibly get annoyed in the background while perfectly capturing what was the essential stoner moment, because really who of us HAVEN'T been in that situation either as the stoner or the one in the background getting annoyed?

As a longtime gamer, I loved the zombie discussion from season four. So many shows limit gaming references to, "Hey, look- we said Halo! Look at how nerdy we are!" (laugh track) Breaking Bad captured both the random tangents from stoned and non-stoned gamers alike so well ("nah, man, they ain't zombies- they're infected!") that I wondered if someone just walked into a LAN party, recorded it, then put the dialogue word-for-word into the show.

Just thinking out loud, has anybody thought about Star Trek's Heisenberg compensators fitting into this some how? Star Trek was the first place I ever heard the name Heisenberg, so it's always been in the back of my mind...

Cagey B: MagSeven: I love how genuinely interested and excited Skinny Pete is at this story.

Me too. I was amused at Badger's idea, but I started laughing when Skinny Pete starts gripping the cushion in suspense.


you know what the problem with Badger's story was?

Both Badger and Skinny Pete are too young to have the original series resonate with them enough for Badger to have actually come up with a script for the original show.  They would have been talking about Next Generation.  At their age (19-25) having them be invested enough in the original show to sit and have stoner convo's about it makes me think that the writers are a bit too old to convincingly write young people.  Which could explain alot, actually.

It totally broke me out of the show for that scene.  Those characters would NEVER have that conversation....  and there is no way Skinny Pete would know shiat about what berries came from where.  That character simply isn't portrayed anywhere near geeky enough to that hardcore into Trek.  He is just a loser stoner - the kind that has probably seen a few Trek episodes, but certainly never got INTO it.  Badger I COULD buy - but only if he had been talking about Picard, Data, Wesley and O'Brien - the ST show he would have grown up on.

In quantum physics  the Heisenberg theory deals with duality. A particle  can be both a particle and a wave. A chemistry teacher can be both a family man and a drug lord.

And I agree, if there is a Sal Goodman spin-off, Skinny Pete and Badger need to be on that show as well...you know, doing the grunt work.

The original Trek is before my time too but I still know about it. The basic crew layout is pretty common knowledge even to non-Trekkies.

/and he obviously didn't know too much about the original Trek if he thought they had replicators back then

sloppy writing.  Badger, even stoned, was portrayed as being WAYY into Trek.  And as far as the crew - of course we all know who was who, pop culture is what it is - but fact is that Badger would have grown up on re-runs of TNG - NOT the original show.  Could he have made the jump and watched on his own?  Maybe - but since by the time he would have been watching, basically NO ONE was re-running the show, it just stretches credulity - add to the fact that modern young people find the show damn near unwatchable and you end up simply with a conversation between to young people that would likely never occur.

I know, I know, stupid...  but think about it.

It does kind of remind me of Psych. The guys in the show are in their early 30s but they always reference movies from the mid-80s. They were playing that song from The Breakfast Club at their high school reunion.

and I am telling you that people in their early 20's won't do it.  They might try, but the terrible writing, terrible acting, cheesy sets and overall cheapness of the show makes it hard to watch.  Dude, I am a life long Trek fan and even I can't get thru a season of ToS before I say "OH GOD ENOUGH".  Hell, I can barely watch the first two seasons of TNG for the same reason.  Add that to the fact the the original series pretty much stopped getting re-run endlessly around the time that TNG STARTED getting re-run endlessly, and seriously - you end up with a conversation that would just never happen.  When Badger would have been a kid, mid-90's - if he was into Trek he would have been a TNG fan.  He might like Wrath Of Khan simply because it is the best turd in a box of turds, but even that would probably be stretching it.

Seriously - they should had written that scene as a TNG thing.  It would have been much more believable.

this right here.  My wife is in her mid-20's.  She knows DICK ALL about the 80's and it's pop culture.  hell, I have to explain to her sometimes why this sketch or that sketch on Family Guy is supposed to be funny - the 80's references always sail right over her head.

a true Star Trek fan does not ignore the weaknesses of the original show nor does a true Trek fan ignore the fact that most of the movies are terrible.

Nope, in TOS they had little turbolifts that ran from the kitchen to the mess hall. Yes, I had the technical manuals when I was ten.

First of all, TOS is before my time too and I've seen them all and this was before they were all available on Netflix streaming. Second, your blind rage on this issue has clouded your judgement. Wrath of Khan was awesome and there were at least 3 other Trek films that were good.

no blind rage.  I personally really like WoK, Star Trek 4: The search for wessels, don't HATE Generations or First Contact.  But man...  most of the original movies are simply not great and the TNG movies are really pretty bad as well.  Is it POSSIBLE that Badger is a big OS fan?  Sure, just isn't likely - just as it is not likely for him to much of a fan of Adam West's Batman show.  He has probably SEEN the show - but it just won't be HIS Batman.  Kids of the 90's - early 00's will be TNG fans if they are hardcore Trekkies - much like Tom Baker will always be MY Doctor.  I like the new show, and have seen some of the earlier Who - but Tom is my Doctor and everything else pales in my mind.  In reality - Badger would be the kid telling you that Picard is better than Kirk, PERIOD, and will not even begin to understand how anyone could think otherwise because he would have grown up with TNG re-runs and watching the older show would be, frankly, farking HARD.

/know quite a few people in Badger's age range due to the fact that my wife is in Badger's age range.  I am not wrong here.

//there is a scene that encapsulates this failure quite well in the original Wayne's World - Wayne, who is around my age, is explaining that while TNG is often a superior show, it will never replace ToS in people's hearts and minds.  But it in fact did just that, especially with the younger set of Trek fans.  Cue the fanboy rage against the new Trek films - rage that mostly boils down to "THIS ISN'T MY TREK" altho the new films are in most every way superior to the old show in acting and FX while cribbing storylines from the old show.

You don't have to watch the whole show to know who the characters are.  You can pick up enough just by consuming other media.  It's part of the zeitgeist.  As pointed out about above, he thinks Scotty had access to a transporter.

it wasn't just that "he knew who the characters were".  he was throwing in little references indicating that he was a HUGE fan, like much of anyone outside of Trekkers know who the fark Yeoman Rand was or the neutral zone or such like.  Sloppy writing farked up the replicator parts and stuff like thinking that Uhura would have had much effect on Scotty while he was operating the transporter.

Why wouldn't a stoner think that Uhura would be able to distract Scotty, the drunk? As for errors, he also farked up what quadrant went with what show but I think that was intentional to provoke internet arguments like this one.
