Star Trek: Lower Decks: Cupid's Errant Arrow Season 1, Ep 5
The preponderance of neural parasites in various science fiction settings is one that probably deserves a closer look, although funding for grant projects has been subtly but consistently discouraged by the Institute for the Study of Neural Parasites, At Least Theoretically, Although, Really, There Are Much Bigger Problems in the Galaxy, Like Supernovas and Stuff, and We're Not Saying That Because We Have Neural Parasites, Honest, We Checked Each Other For Them, That's Totally Legit (TIFTSONPALTARTAMBPITGLSASAWNSTBWHNPHWCEOFTTTL) [more inside]
Mystery Science Theater 3000: THE STARFIGHTERS Season 6, Ep 12
"THE BLAZING ADVENTURE of the men and planes who rocket to the very edge of OUTER SPACE!" A young Air Force cadet, who is Actual Bob Dornan and manifestly unlikeable even then, learns to fly a new jet, but forget about that. Get ready for tons of hott thicc triple-X refueling action! Oooh god. This episode has gotten something of a legendary reputation because of its great inanity (you wouldn't BELIEVE how much refueling can be in a movie), and the pointless late-film introduction of the "poopie suit," and the riffing is pretty great. The host segments have some great moments too, with the highlight being the United Servo Academy Men's Chorus. But the movie BITES, much more than the average. YouTube (1h32m) Promo (They're playing Doom!) Premiered October 29, 1994. [more inside]
