Recap / The Nostalgia Critic S 5 E 3

Release: January 17, 2012

Film: Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984)

This review contains examples of:

  • Previously On: Since the Nostalgia Critic skips out the even-numbered Star Trek movies, as most people consider them superior to the odd-numbered ones, he does a recap in the style of the 1960's Batman series, in this case, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.
  • Shout-Out: "Any time you need to use the word 'tiny,' just use the word 'Takei' instead."
  • So Okay, It's Average: He thinks the film isn't anything special, but doesn't deserve to be lumped into the "odd numbers are bad" rule
  • Too Dumb to Live: The Critic calls Scotty on this, after he says he didn't expect them to enter combat.
    "Yes, because stealing a starship and being hunted by the entire Federation would never put you in a situation where you needed to defend yourself!"
