Hilarious, Unmade Episodes of Star Trek

The concept is not new. Mike McMahan, the comedy writer who created the Star Trek sitcom Lower Decks, spent years proposing funny ideas for Next Generation episodes in @TNG_S8, which later became the book Warped: An Engaging Guide to the Never-Aired Eighth Season.

The Twitter feed @FoundEpisodes likewise has many odd 90s-era Star Trek episode pitches from an alternate universe. He photoshops them into print listings from TV Guide, the backs of VHS cassette cases, and on-screen cable TV show times.

What sets Found Episodes apart from McMahan's work is the partial listings of other TV shows and movies teasingly offered below and above the Star Trek listings. Never mind Star Trek (I can't believe I'm saying that)--I want to watch a Richard Pryor/Gene Wilder comedy set during the Jefferson administration. Then I'll try to record Marc Singer of Beastmaster fame in a Muppet movie.

ā€‹Ben Sisko famously punched Q, to Q's complete shock. After I watch that episode, I'll listen to Bon Jovi's contribution to a Batman movie soundtrack.

I really want to see Denzel Washington's costume as Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

Paul Reubens in an action film? Count me in!
