Is there any moment from TV history that was so outrageously funny / weird that it stuck in your mind years later? Submit your choice. Bonus points for finding a Youtube clip of it!
Well, my selection comes from the cheesy 80s sci-fi American TV show "Buck Rogers":

Picking one specific moment would be hard, but I would have to say generally, the period in which Conan O'Brian was working during the writer's strike. Best shows he ever did. I was sad to see the writers come back and bring the show back to normal, really. Running around the building at random with audience members and cameramen, installing a zip line in the studio, the "spin the ring" series...on and on...I would LOVE a DVD set devoted entirely to that period of the show!

Thanks for the first comment Stuffgamer! I like Conan allot too, but I don't think I caught much of episodes during that time period. I feel like I missed something good...

Easily easily easily this Star Trek episode. I think I can speak for everyone when I say, "wtf".

Brilliant clip clicketyclick! With writing that strong, it's anybody's guess why the show was eventually cancelled.

So where are all my European an Australian friends, from across the pond, when I need them?

@Turbo Genesis 64: if you watch the beginning of the episode up to that clip, it makes much more sense than it does out of context. Also, if you want better writing, watch you some DS9.

Hey I love Star Trek too, but the 3rd Season is generally conisered the worst with episodes like Spock's Brain. True, there was budget problems.
I agree DS9 was probably the best overall Star Trek series.

Whaaat, you're both crazy. DS9 had some great episodes, and I'd list it as the second best series, but TNG's writing and acting was the pinnacle of all things Star Trek.
Also, here you go (yeah, I know, it doesn't really count):

Thanks for the clip Wariowoods! I think I missed that one the first time around. Is Picard gay?
So what did you guys think of my "Off Think" clip? Nobody has even mentioned it in the comments
14. Posted: Sun 26th Jul 2009 05:20 BST
Oh, I found that clip bizarre, and also was brought back to being a youngster who watched that show and found her to be quite attractive. I didn't see that particular episode when I was young, but if I had, I'm sure I'd have been chanting along with them.

Yeah, that episode was a bit strange. Now, how about some Riker self-love?

Ha, yeah this guy's made a whole lot of ingenious edits. Here's another favorite, after which I hope to stop hijacking the thread:

"Brain and brain! WHAT IS BRAIN?!!!"
There are pretty of narms in Star Trek...
I had fun once and it was awful.

Oh my god I hate Family Guy! And that example of randomness is exactly why.
Still haven't thought of mine, so yeah, I should have kept my mouth shut...

OMG I had to stop watching the Riker one, aaaaaaagh!
20. Posted: Sun 26th Jul 2009 20:55 BST
hahaha, i've seen those videos before... that dude doing the edits is hilarious. Episode 5: The NaQed Now is my favorite. :3 anyway...
@Turbo Genesis 64: I do agree that Spock's Brain was absolute crap (and if we're bringing up absolute wtfery at its finest, why not bring up The Savage Curtain? lol, Abraham Lincoln), but Season 3 had some good episodes, and Plato's Stepchildren wasn't the worst by far. :3
@Warioswoods: five years ago, I would have agreed with you, but my husband got me watching DS9 a couple years ago and it is really the better series IMO. TNG (and Voyager, kinda) is more in the style of TOS in terms of exploration and one-shot encounters with alien species, but DS9 deals more with what happens to a region of space after the exploration has (mostly) already happened and everyone's settling in to live with what's going on in that one area... DS9 really fleshed out some of the existing Trek species and gave them life beyond their few encounters with the Starship Enterprise, and I really love it for that.
yes, TNG was groundbreaking, but DS9 was the refinement (if not perfection in some episodes?) afterward. :3
