13: Do You KNOW Harlan Ellison?

July 17, 2018 → 95 minutes

In tribute, Joe is showing Adam the curmudgeonly storyteller’s famous Star Trek episode “The City on the Edge of Forever”, as well as the very different script Ellison originally wrote for it. Why were so many changes made — and dare we ask which one is better?
