TelevisionStar Trek: The Animated Series - "The Eye of the Beholder" (01x15) - Not Recommended
Official synopsis: Spock, Sulu and Uhura are captured by the Kzinti, who are trying to learn the secret of an ancient weapon.
This episode is fun, but not anything ground-breaking. The aliens kidnap the humans and put them in a zoo, which is familiar to Star Trek fans. They have superior intelligence, even to Spock, and treats them like animals. This is familiar too. Spock and McCoy bicker which is normal. So there's nothing really to recommend although it is a gorgeous episode with wonderful alien designs. The writer David P. Harmon also wrote the original Star Trek episodes "The Deadly Years" and "A Piece of the Action" and those are much more fun to watch.

MoviesHercules in New York (1969) - Recommended
See Arnold Schwarzenegger as the mythological Hercules! Toga clad and ripped to Mr. Universe proportions, Hercules is bored with life on Mount Olympus. When he declares his desire to live among earthly mortals, his father Zeus hurls an angry thunderbolt at Hercules and sends him plummeting to Earth. A freighter bound for New York picks up the water-logged demi-god and thus begins a raucous, muscle-bound adventure that pits New Yorkers against the godly denizens of Mount Olympus. You have your choice of either the real Arnold or the dubbed version!
This low-budget movie stars 22-year-old Arnold Schwarzenegger (billed as Arnold Strong) in his first feature film. If you love bad movies then this is a gold mine. Almost every scene is filmed in New York's Central Park and hotel rooms. Schwarzenegger's accent is so thick and heavy you can hardly understand him although he does say "I am Hercules (Hah-coo-leees)" a lot so we know who he is. His accent was so bad it was originally dubbed with a more heroic voice, but it's been restored. Oddly enough, Schwarzenegger's youth works for him and is a wonderful contrast to his later gun-toting macho roles. In this one he's simple, sweet and kind and that's wonderful to see. My favorite part of the movie has Hercules fighting an escaped bear in the park. The best part is the guy in the bear suit either has no idea how bears fight or is genuinely angry because he starts punching and kicking Schwarzenegger in a very un-bear-like manner. Watch it below and enjoy the show. I am Hercules!
