I am revisiting TOS right now. To be honest I'm just soldiering through them at this point. My gauge is that about 1 out of every 5 episodes is "good." I grew up on TNG so there is no nostalgia factor to outweigh the bad episodes.
I grew up when TNG was on so I am not nostalgic for the original series either and yet from watching episodes of both TNG and TOS now I prefer TOS (although I still enjoy TNG).
Don't get me wrong TOS has many bad episodes but I think it has many good episodes too. And I think even some bad episodes are enjoyable to me because of fun moments between the characters.
