Re: If TNG/DS9/VOY were never made, would you have watched TOS?

I don't know, it's nice to see a movie whose architecture has influenced many other movies but it is kinda like reading the early work of an author, in and of itself not that great.
Lang's stuff is interesting because his work unconsciously reflects many trends: Metropolis is fascist propaganda, M is anti-fascist, the silent Mabuse neatly show this post WWI moral and ideological emptiness. If it were more self-aware it wouldn't work.
