From when I first saw a clip of the forthcoming (to British Televison) Star Trek on the national news on BBC1 in most probably late 1968 or early 1969, I just thought "Wow".
Kirk fighting the Gorn was the clip, and being an impressionable and slightly out there 9 year old, that memory will always live with me.
It was fresh, different, clever, even cerebral as some American TV critics said, but it was just amazing.
Still watch it to this day, well Kirks Star Trek, and still love it, but as a middle aged adult, I can now see its sometimes ridiculous flaws and I can nit pick with the best of them, however it will always be my favourite television programme, good or bad, always.
So shoot me
