True to an extent (Wrath of Khan is pretty similar to Balance of Terror, really) but ST V is easily the film that most resembles TOS which is why it's a shame fans hate it.
I don't know why you'd think that. Maybe it resembled third-season TOS, but at its root, TOS was intended to be a naturalistic drama with believable characterization, while TFF was a broad, self-mocking action-comedy whose priorities did not include believability.
Well, I strongly disagree on that one. It resembles a low-tier second season episode to me, from once the show had established its traditional Star Trek formula.
