Well, it's been DECADES since I last watched TOS regularly. In the mid '80's, Channel 9 here in Perth ran the series between 5:00 and 6:00pm, before the 6:00 nightly news. I know I never saw it all but I remember it was my FIX and I LOVED it!
Having recently seen STID, I wanted to wash the not so good taste out of my mouth. That and the fact my partner has never seen a single episode and I decided it would be wonderful to go back and watch TOS from the beginning, to show him where it all started!
I have the remastered versions because I know it's going to be hard for my partner to be watching it as it is. The least I could do was get the upgraded effects.
I started watching last Monday(24/6)and we are actually watching the eps in air date order(starting with "The Man Trap"), something I now regret. C'est la vie, we've started and it's too late to back out now.
Reviews, thoughts and whatever I feel like posting when I feel like it, will follow.
