I, Mudd of course. One of those strange trips into comedy that Star Trek was able to make without totally shattering the belief that it was the same world in which Doomsday Machine or City on the Edge of Forever took place. The wildly illogical performance to disable the robots is very funny. Of course, the best part of the episode is "Stella, dear." The terrible cruelty of having 500 Stellas looking after Harrry Mudd at the end is funny and scary. We all know someone in our lives who the idea of 500 of them harping at us constantly is beyond frightening. "I, Mudd" is mostly just a heck of a lot of fun.

What Longtime said, I can't really top that. It's fine character work by Roger Carmel and good writing... both times.

It was a great episode. I loved when the crew went about confusing his androids, but Mudd's performance was clearly the best. Again, teh awesome!

I'll bet it was a fun episode to film w/all the humor built right into the script towards the androids.
