Re: TOS On MeTV?

Some syndicated stations actually received uncut episodes from Paramount back in the '70s and '80s and stations had to make their own edits in order to add extra commercial space or run the episodes unaltered and air only ten or eleven minutes of ads. Some did the former, others the latter. Author and TREK fan Phil Farrand writes about these "Unsyndicated Episodes" in his 1994 Nitpicker's Guide.
