TOS is more theatrical, but that can be a great thing in its own right.
I've always thought science fiction is the most theatrical form of visual presentation, and Star Trek (in all its incarnations) does the theatrical aspect best of all.

There's a stylization of performance in Star Trek sometimes missing in other filmed science fiction, possibly aided by the franchise's frequent use of actors trained in theatre for regulars and guest stars.

One of the cast members (I don't remember who or which series) compared it to doing a period piece, which sounds pretty accurate to me.
