Short Treks: “The Escape Artist”


The fourth and final Short Treks is a lighter take, focusing on one Harcourt Fenton Mudd, starring (and directed by) Rainn Wilson. It starts out entertaining, but screws up the ending. Read my review at the link….

An excerpt:

Mudd tries to inveigle Krit to let him go, or to team up with him, or pretty much do anything but turn him over to the Federation, who have offered a substantial reward for Mudd for a lengthy list of charges. (One of them is penetration of a space whale, a reference to “Magic to Make…” which earns him a confused and vaguely disgusted look from Krit. Mudd’s sheepish response is, “You hadda be there.”)
