Re: how many of you realy like the TOS tv show

Cool! I get to be "that guy".

I own all three seasons (Remastered) largely because I love Trek in general and I am a completionist.

I think TOS has a handful of truly amazing episodes that easily stand the test of time, but it's average shows are now bad and it's bad shows aren't even made fun of anymore because it is so played out.

A lot of super cheesy and dated material that just never really connected with me. I enjoy the films II, III, IV, and VI far more than I enjoy the show itself.

But I am one of those heretics who think DS9 was the best show out them all so what do I know? LOL

Re: how many of you realy like the TOS tv show

I love TOS. It does have it's flaws, but having grown up with it, nostalgia always wins out, even with some of the poorer episodes (Yes Spock's Brain, I'm looking at you!).

The first episode I can ever remember watching is The Ultimate Computer, simply because my earliest memory of the show is seeing multiple Enterprises on the screen.

The cheese is all part of the fun. It's like watching the 1960s Batman series. You can either dig the vibe it's going for or not. Something like Spock's Brain has IMO got a rewatchability value that goes beyond whether it's good or bad television in itself.

True nostalgia helps, and it's just not with TV and Film, but music etc...

Re: how many of you realy like the TOS tv show

TOS has a few really great episodes, a lot of good episodes, a lot of bad episodes, and a handful of episodes that are just unwatchable.

I grew up watching TNG and later DS9, and never really liked TOS as a kid, but as an adult I've learned to appreciate it. I don't know that I could ever love it as much as someone who grew up in that era, but I certainly think it's a hell of a lot better than Voyager or Enterprise.

It is the best of all of the series, even if not perfect.

I don't like it as much as TNG, but it does have some great stories. I watch episodes on Netflix from time to time .

Re: how many of you realy like the TOS tv show

Although I didn't watch it properly until rather recently, I do really like it. Even though I'd not actually watched it fully, I knew pretty much everything about it, It's just something you know.

Re: how many of you realy like the TOS tv show

I started with TNG. But now I have come to realise that TOS is the best of the shows. It's more ...fun, and less preachy. And TOS didn't set out to make a 'Star Trek' show, but just good sci fi, like the Twilight Zone. It didn't get bogged down in canon.

I have all 6 shows including TAS, on DVD. And all the movies. But I acknowledge a huge debt of gratitude to TOS. Without it, the others would not exist. My age? 30. I started watching Trek around '94 when I was 12

Yes. Even Spock's Brain is funny. Maybe unintentionally so, but it's part of the charm. Hell, I even get a laugh out of Melvin Belli in a muu muu in 'And The Children Shall Lead'.

Yeah. It's stupid but in a good way. Not like "And the Children Shall Lead", "The Omega Glory" or "The Way to Eden".
