Re: Can TOS be appreciated by younger viewers?
It didn't make sense to me that he was always taking Spock and McCoy away with him on ground expeditions. Its irresponsible.
Shatner and Nimoy were the stars of the show. They weren't going to pay them to sit around while other actors went into the action.
It's TV. Even Patrick Stewart wanted to get more involved in the action as TNG went on.
