Re: Does anyone else find McCoy annoying?

Hi all - back on the trekbbs after a long hiatus.

Have been re-watching TOS after a long time and have really been annoyed by McCoy in almost every episode. Here are some of my reasons.
For one thing, every time Spock is in command he questions all of Spock's decisions and makes his job harder.
He also seems to be pretty dumb, almost always preferring his gut to scientific analysis and usually wrong.

Anyway - just wanted to see if I was the only one.
It took me some time to warm up to him. When you first see TOS he does indeed appear to be just a rude, ignorant old man but after some time you realize that he is actually friends with Spock and deeply cares about his patients.
