__________________________________this happend on the planet of foam so the rock is very light, duh..
I`m a huge TOS fan, this is a great episode, and it`s even funnier out of context.
A) This was in the mid to late 60s...CGI and computers for that matter did not exist in Hollywood for movies, much less TV shows
B) They had a miserable budget because the studio higher ups never figured the American public would get into a sci-fi series
C) The reason he has no weapons is because both Kirk and the Gorn are on the planet against their will - a more advanced species put them there to settle their differences hand to hand
Of course I admit it would not have killed the guy in the Gorn suit get into his role some more, but then again maybe he couldn`t move so well in it.
"Big space ship? Check""Supplies? Check""Writing our wills in case we encounter enemies? Check""Map to a planet we`ve never ever been on before. check""Weapons? nahhh we dont need em"
AND THAT HISSING WAS THE SHAT!
My favourite moment is.. when the lizard picks up a bigger boulder and kirky is just like.. "ahhh for f**k`s sake, i could go back to the ship, take a s**t, and come back and you still wouldnt have picked up that boulder, im not taking this kind of crap from you slow lizard mofo, im f**king off"
I did love the slow mo punches.
yeah, that`s the best part!
