YES. I just watched that episode of ENT the other day and almost shit my pants. I'm usually opposed to CG unless you have a huge budget for it, otherwise it sometimes ends up looking absolutely ridiculous.
True, but let's not forget that the original Gorn was absolutely ridiculous as well.
By today's standards, yes, but I can rationalize the Gorn in TOS to an extent. I much preferred the almost inectoid like eyes because it suggested something other than an Earth like reptile. Also some reptiles might get sluggish in lower temperatures than what is optimal for them. The Metrons might have provided such an environment just to even the odds a bit more. Neither Kirk nor the Gorn were truly in their comfort zone.
