Re: Berman-era v. TOS Pacing: What do you think?

The problem with TOS's approach is that it often took what would have been a perfectly good half-hour episode and padded...it...out to fill that hour. TNG-era's A/B story approach seemed to be an attempt to improve upon this. I generally have no problem with it in TNG, which remains the most "comfy" Trek series to me...but by the time VGR and ENT had come along, they had problems holding my attention because it seemed like I'd seen everything they were doing a time or two before.
