Are you wearing your masks when you go out? We sure hope so! And we hope they’re more effective than the masks worn by Data & Picard in this infamous episode of TNG. Regarded by many as one of the worst episodes of the show, we felt the time was right to give it the RTW treatment. It’s got many of the hallmarks of fun TNG episodes: Brent Spiner acting like a weirdo, Picard nerding out about anthropology, surreal atmosphere, strange visuals… one of the hosts even claims to be a Masks apologist. But there’s a lot to unpack in this bizarre 45 minutes of television. In addition to the episode discussion, we open the mailbag and catch up with the listeners, have a discussion about video games we like, launch into a Masks rap, and so very much more. Like Masaka, Reopening the Wormhole is RISING (in quality).
