Re: Can TOS be appreciated by younger viewers?
The series is of its time, the pacing and style really is little different from any other series of the period, so if you're predisposed to dislike it because it isn't made to current artistic form there's not much to tell you. Possibly, you might enjoy a different TV series of the era where the actors and stories would be engaging enough to overlook the aspects that make TOS hard to enjoy for you. Also, that could help bridge the hard to take aspects by allowing an appreciation for the film making of the time and help make TOS a bit more easy to swallow.
I wouldn't recommend 'Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea', though. If TOS is hard to take that might make you wish for the joy of a migraine headache.
