Re: Season 3 is a great season

"All Our Yesterdays" and primarily Spocks interactions with Zarabeth, is one of my favourite Star Trek episodes of all time.
I think I've suffered from "Third Season episode post traumatic syndrome" (3SEPTS) for many years as I almost never watch the final handful of episodes of the season. It's almost like watching the TOS version of a death march or the last days of a loved one with a terminal illness. It's a shame as I bet there are a few good moments mixed in there as well.

The exception might be "Turnabout Intruder," which I do watch on occasion as it has some quirky parts I like (as well as a interesting guest star).

But even that is sad.... the last line spoken in the series is delivered by Shatner, and it is the perfect epitaph for TOS:

"If only.... if only...."
