And why do you think they belong in the terrible turkey episodes category.? :D

Deconstruction of Falling Stars.

This was a filler episode for the series 4 finale of Babylon 5. It’s a little out of sorts with the rest of the series, but It is totally understandable as the 5th series was approved late and the finale had to be pushed back to it’s natural ending.

A lot of people criticise this one, but I always felt that it reflected J.M.S’s faith that mankind, for all it’s flaws, would make it. A weak episode, to be sure but I wouldn’t call it a turkey though.

They did a wonderful homage to Walter Miller Jr's novel A Canticle Leibowitz in one segment of that episode.

Spock's Brain One the most infamously bad episodes from season three of the original Star Trek. This has so much wrong with it .

Maybe the episode, but Leonard Nimoy's acting was excellent.
Lost In Space abounded with badness, but I remember exactly when, as a kid, it stopped being science fiction and became just a sitcom like Gilligan's Island for me. It was the one with the Norse Gods. Odin hollers COME HERE! and Dr. Smith comes running, his legs spinning like a flintstepping cartoon character.

The First season of Lost in Space is the best, It's gritty, dark and stays somewhat in the bounds of science fiction and plausibility. Season 2 is not as good and, at that point, the series was starting to slide into realm of fantasy and the campiness which culminated in Season 3.

Irwin Allen once said that he had enough ideas for twenty years of episodes of Lost In Space. The trajectory the series followed in just three years I figured seventeen more years would collapse Western Civilization into a new Dark Age.

And the Children Shall Lead A third season trek episode which had some interesting story elements . But overall , this episodes is a silly pointless mess of an episode.
