Re: Is TOS the best sci-fi TV American series until 1985?
And in response I offer "Wolf in The Fold," where the chief engineer of this wonderful sci-fi series of starring and trekking is possessed by - wait for it - the ghost of freaking Jack the Ripper!
It's worth noting that he's not possessed by the ghost of jack the ripper per se
, but by the alien that also once posessed the killer(s) known as jack the ripper. I think it's a small detail that makes the idea a little more interesting because it has nothing to do with afterlife and it means aliens were messing around on earth at least as far back as the 1800s..
Not more interesting, just slightly less silly...
