I gotta take out Arena at this point for the distractingly bad effects and even worse scenes of the crew watching the fight.

Re: The least disliked episode of TOS - Season One

Let's just finished off the second half of the clip show of TOS "The Menagerie (II)"
It's not bad, but at least in today's world, you can see the original thing (The Cage) without needing the Kirk and Co. story wraparound.

Okay this has gone around a few times so I am taking out Errand of Mercy. It doesn't have McCoy so that is reason enough for me to vote it out.

What is WRONG with some of you people?? Some of these eliminations are head-shakers.

Out of what is left...I'm going with Tomorrow is Yesterday...just a tad boring compared to what is left.

The Devil in the Dark - It's a good episode (much better than TNG's Home Soil), but the Horta design makes me laugh, especially when Spock mindmelds with it.

Removed Dagger of the Mind. It's the weakest of those left. Marianna Hill is gorgeous, but Helen Noel is an awful, unprofessional character. James Gregory also rubs me the wrong way with this.

Well, seriously, how many honestly bad episodes are really in the first season? Like, two? There's really no stinky cheese episodes left on the list.

Should have done with for the 3rd season.

Re: The least disliked episode of TOS - Season One

I'm gonna do something really controvesial and ill probably get shot for it.
I'm taking out City on the Edge of Forever.
Now WAIT WAIT, hold your fire! I do NOT dislike the episode. It's a perfectly good episode and a perfectly good plot and perfectly good writing. I just, personally, don't find it especially watchable or entertaining. It's not on of those I rewatch over and over and over. It's one I think 'hmm others seem to think that's a classic trek episode. I better put it on while I do this other more important thing so I can say I've watched it recently'.

Don't feel bad. People knocked out episodes like Best of Both Worlds, The Inner Light and All Good Things pretty much right away.

You're not alone with those feelings. I see why people like it, but I'm not usually drawn to re-watch it.

I'll kick out "The Enemy Within", while it's a fun conceit, it really isn't as great as some of the others on the list.

Re: The least disliked episode of TOS - Season One

Getting to to the reallty tough episodes to eliminate so it's going to be "The Naked Time". I can't really say the episode had any major faults, it's just that I would rather re-watch the other episodes that are left.

Where No Man Has Gone Before
The Corbomite Maneuver
The Conscience of the King
Balance of Terror
The Galileo Seven

Say goodbye to: The Conscience of the King. I do like Shakespeare, and it was fun that it added some backstory to the character of James T. Kirk - but overall, I've honestly never really cared for it.

I'm glaring at you from across the internet.

But it is very difficult from now on.
