Oh dear, it’s Avenger-Trek again…

But first…
Dulltown, UK/Europe: today’s unusual pencil sharpener is the one shaped like a Visigoth – see if you can find the hole that you put the pencil in.

Why do we still like to watch ancient musty old TV shows from the 1960s, like the very American Star Trek and the very British Avengers? Is it because they were well written and they were stylish, and they had some warmth and wit spliced into them?
I’ve seen them all so often I can almost mouth the dialogue along with the actors. If you notice that there’s an episode of one on one channel, and an episode of the other on a nearby channel, you can flick between the two and have double the enjoyment!…

‘I am Captain Kirk!’
‘Do you believe in ghosts Mr Steed?’
‘Decisions are becoming more and more difficult Spock.’
‘Well, I’d had too much to drink I’m afraid.’
‘Give me your phaser!’
‘Super, super-natural Mrs Peel?’
‘You need me, I need you!’
‘Cant and mumbo-jumbo!…’
‘Do you have a point Spock?’
‘Ah, good morning!…’
‘Love, tenderness?…’
‘You are in danger of ruffling my feathers…’
‘But you still have your intellect Jim!’
‘Mrs Peel, it will be a long, cold, fruitless vigil…’
‘The main circuits are burned through captain!’
‘That’s quite impossible Mr Steed.’
‘Scotty here captain…’
‘It’s been awfully nice meeting you.’
‘Enterprise, this is Sulu… Enterprise!…’
‘There’s something nasty in the wine cellar…’
‘Survival procedures Mr Sulu!’
‘He does it all by science Mr Steed.’
‘A thoughtless brutal animal Spock?…’
‘He paid me to say I hadn’t seen it…’
