Re: Which movie is most like a TOS episode?

They all have their classic ST moments but another check-mark in the ST V column from me.

I was at an event showing all five films and the trailer for VI, (billed: "Sit Long and Prosper") during the intermission between IV and V, I was taking with some neighbors in the row ahead of us about V. They were expressing their dismay at now needing to endure the Abomination that is ST V. I suggested they try to pay more attention to the soundtrack, may enhance their viewing. They doubted it but agreed to try. As the film was playing out I noticed them sitting still as statues during the most emotional music cues. Afterwards I asked, well? They admitted it wasn't as bad as they previously thought. They had been judging it to ST IV rather than on its own merits.
