Re: Is TOS the best sci-fi TV American series until 1985?
I don't think anyone here is bad-mouthing TOS.
I love the show, but I don't think it would've gotten the same traction in the 500-channel universe that it did in the 3/4-channel universe. So I don't think it's fair to bash TNG and the later spin-offs for existing in that universe.
