TrekRanks Episode 79: Top 5 Comfort Food Episodes (Redux)

Originally released on March 26, 2020

Listen to the show :

It's a milestone episode for TrekRanks as we reach Episode 79 (the same number of TOS episodes produced). To celebrate we are tackling our first-ever do-over topic, going all the way back to Episode 1 of TrekRanks with our Top 5 Comfort Food Episodes (Redux). A "comfort food" episode speaks to you personally and can literally be anything to anyone! Host Jim Moorhouse and husband-and-wife team Matt Finbow and Dana Kenedy cover all the basis in this cozy, warm blanket of an episode.

The final picks from our panel include several classics and quite a few deep cut selections that are sure to surprise. This week's show begins with our Diagnostic Cycle as our guests pick a favorite non-Trek comfort food item from the world of television and film. We then move into our Prime Directive where each of our guests defines how they narrowed down their selections and made their final picks.

Jim, Dana and Matt then break down their final picks in The Order of Things by revealing their "Five Words and a Hashtag Summaries." We close out the picks with a few more deep cuts and popular classics in our Secondary Systems.

In this week's Regeneration Cycle we not only recap all of our picks, but also run through a quick look at the predictions that Dana and Matt made for each other's picks to see just how well they know each other's comfort favorites. (Hint: they both did pretty good on their predictions!)

From there, the show dives into this week's Temporal Causality Loop as we flashback to Episode 73 and our Top 5 Crossover Moments.

As always, make sure to hail us at 609-512-LLAP (5527) and record your own personal TrekRanks log to let us know your Top 5 Comfort Food Episodes (Redux). Your comments might be used via a Temporal Causality Loop in an upcoming episode. And your recording might also be considered as an audition as a future TrekRanks' guest host!
