See, I was able to handle those things. What ruined it for me was Nona doing her little oversexed healing ritual of putting what looked like a fresh dog turd on Kirk's chest while hubby banged a drum.
Oh, me too, certainly. It's one thing to find some amusement in something, but for it to dominate the episode is the choice of someone with a distinct inability to suspend disbelief.
My favorite part of the episode was the Kirk/McCoy argument in the cave. But I tended in general to enjoy those two locking horns over an issue. It gave their relationship a nice depth.
