Re: Being a TOS fan back in the day...

Yep I was a fan back in the day catching the 70s rerun.

No-one, no-one I knew was a fan. I used to bring the Blish or Alan Dean Foster books to school to read at lunch time. My friends just humoured me.

I went to the bookshop every few months or so waiting for the next Blish adaption to come out. I even bought a model Enterprise kit. I still have the decals but must have used some evil glue and dissolved the plastic.

I liked 'Planet of the Apes', 'Blakes 7', UFO, 'Land of the Giants', even when I was desperate Space 1999 and Original Battlestar Galactica.

I was less enthused for a whie while TOS was off TV (not even in re-runs) and thought I would come back to it and not find it as good as I remember when the DVDs came out. However I found it was even better than I remembered.
