Just about everything seems cheesy when the styles change dramatically in 5-10 years, especially to anyone under 20 when the time hits. Wait a decade for people to shake their heads at all the interest in a show like "Lost."
Yes, very true. It's only a matter of being able to look past the anachronistic appearance of a television series and enjoy the story at its core. If it is a good story, it will be a timeless one.
That's the thing.

What's funny is it wasn't too long ago that I recall people on this very site complaining that nobody would ever take the costumes on TOS seriously today because they were ridiculous in color and design . . . and here we are with virtual copies of those costumes in the latest film, and I don't hear anyone complaining about them being "cheesy." All it takes is for something to be popular and no matter how ridiculous it might have seemed before or will after, people will get on the bandwagon and celebrate or adopt it.
