    It's definitely in the running for my favorite episode of the series thus far. The A and B plots worked well together and the humor wasn't awkwardly thrown in. Also, getting back your kidnapped crewmembers from an alien society is about as Trek as it gets.

    I rewatched S1 ep1 and 2, apparently favreau was listed there as well, so not a new development

    The backpack Mercer got lumbered with in S02E04 looked surprisingly similar to a MACO backpack from Enterprise Season 3

    Holy shit, that was a genuinely funny and fascinating episode.
    The humor was subtle and spontaneous, just some recycled cliche's we would expect from the show.

    Mustache part was funny and silly, and the table part had me laughing hard.

    Really damn good. Every scene in this episode was a joy. It's perhaps not the most Star Trek the show has ever been, but no other episode has executed so consistently from start to end. This is going to make it into top episodes lists for sure.
