Re: Star Trek [TOS] is Cheesy!

This cheese argument is the exact perspective that kept me from watching and appreciating this show until last year! I had many chances to get into it over the years and always rejected it and not just over the aesthetic things like costumes. I was also turned off by how grating the music can be...like they flare up a LOUD dramatic sting every time something happens that supposedly makes the situation more DIRE. But I don't care about stuff like that anymore. I had to get older, more patient, and more open-minded before I could perceive the hidden treasure behind Star Trek's cheesy, cornball surface, to see the rich, creamy dramatic and/or comedic goodness underneath. Why do I feel hungry now?
