Re: Amok Time doesn't make sense.

Pon Farr in the episode partly works as it's treated as something mysterious, not just in the script but the way the scenes are played. In Search for Spock, it's just like they said, 'Well, he's living his life over again, so we need a Pon Farr sequence here.'

The only time Pon Farr seems treated with the same mysterious quality to me is ENT: Bounty, but there it's mostly played for laughs.
