Re: Is Star Trek (the original series) aging really badly?

There's another factor with TOS, in that if you listen to only the audio, it's often much like a radio show with pictures. The plot is revealed through dialogue, not onscreen action. Not sure where I first read that analysis, it might have been in David Gerrold's early background books.
