Re: Berman-era v. TOS Pacing: What do you think?
I can't think of any TOS episode that was padded...
Remember that all episodes that get broadcast today have had little chunks taken out to allow more commercial time and seem...incomplete because of that. If there was any padding in those episodes, that editing should have had little effect on the story.
