Watched with my girlfriend last night, and again I had to explain all the cuts to her. We had just the barest glimpse of Kirk looking at a single medal in his quarters, and she didn't understand at all why he then got so angry in the transporter room, immediately afterward.
Syndication and commercial edits suck. They always have. Always will. The lust for more commercial revenue is going to eventually reduce a one-hour television program to barely thirty minutes of actual content. Just because I understand the networks' and local stations' logic in making trims doesn't mean I agree with it.

I'm just glad I have DVDs and Netflix. TOS is always better uncut.
