I'll defend "Catspaw" to my dying day. It's a spooky Halloween episode written by Robert Bloch, no less. What's not to like?
There's so much to like! Korob and Sylvia have a fascinating rapport, and Korob is intriguing because I'm hard pressed to pin the label of villain on him; it's only Sylvia who's doing the really grim stuff. Korob comes across as a kindred explorer, being more interested in conversation and understanding, with threats (just an impression). The image of the Enterprise-on-a-chain being held over a candle and it's effects; followed by that symbolic-Enterprise encase in a crystal block were memorable from when I was a kid. Love Spock's critique of the spooky poetry, too.
