Re: "The Trouble With Tribbles" is the most overrated episode of TOS..


I am a die hard Trek fan and have been for 40 years but this episode is just embarassing. Some episodes have grand intentions but flop ( Alternative factor, etc. ) but Tribbles just sucks.

People who like this episode likely feel that "Three's Company" is the epitome of the comedic art. Its BAD, poorly written, schlocky, bad. Yes cut pieces of fabric are adorable but it is BAD.

William Campbell was brilliant as Trelane but does anyone for a moment take him seriously as a fierce warrior Klingon ?

This episode tries too hard to be cute and it is BAD.

Hey, lets end the episode with a pun, brilliant......."no tribble at all" makes me cringe.


Too subtle ?
