I'm a TNG era boy, I grew up watching Picard and co.
But in most respects I actually like TOS more. It's got an infectious feel that appeals to me. I think you need to be "in the zone" to watch it with that kind of hindsight that it was very much a product of its time and make allowances for that, which is something that not everybody seems able to do. But speaking personally I do find it very easy to just pop an episode of TOS in and just let it take me on an adventure.
