Pods and Monsters (Germinating “The Seeds of Death”)

Instantaneous teleportation between any two points on Earth? Sounds pretty convenient — so convenient that it might lead to a stagnant society ripe for conquest by the next passing alien force. Yes, The Seeds of Death tees up the planet quite nicely for the Ice Warriors, but it’s hard to close the deal when your troops faint when they get close to a radiator, your diabolical bioweapon fizzles the moment it starts to rain, and your space fleet is being steered by Mr. Magoo. Sure, it doesn’t take a genius to see that Earth got way too complacent, but what’s your excuse, Mars?

Commentary for The Seeds of Death begins at 28:30.
