Re: Terrible TOS performances....
Like I said, I love TOS.
I sometimes wish contemporary actors would be braver in going for 'bold' performance.
I just don't think their as capable. So many of those actors from TOS grew up on the stage, one of the reasons Stewart really sticks out among Modern Trek
One of the reasons modern dramas don't really grab me the way those in the sixties and seventies did.
J.J. Abrams didn't change Star Trek, audience expectations did.
