Re: Characters Spirit - Reboot compared to TOS (Possible spoilers)

There isn't any of the spirit of the old characters. Abrams' characters are two-dimensional, thinly-veiled caricatures of the original crew, at best. McCoy does nothing of value, ever, and every time Karl Urban utters a one-liner it is painfully evident the scriptwriters are trying to make him a grouchy old man without ever having watched Kelly DeForest.
I find them appropriate for the ages that are being shown. Been watching TOS since 1975. McCoy did nothing but save Kirk.
And it's DeForest Kelley.
