Any good episode where the stunt doubles are nowhere near the look or shape of who they are doubling.
THIS!! Especially in the HD age, where you can actually make out the stunt guy´s face.
I've got to go with this one as well. Every time it happened, which was fairly often, it really took me out of the episode.

It's more obvious now then when we watched the show on a 24in. CRT television and most likely with interference or ghosting on the screen.

I used to think the guy who doubled for Kirk when he fought himself in Enemy Within and Whom Gods Destroy looked closed enough to Shatner to be his twin. In HD,even though he's mostly shot from the back its clear its not Shatner

One of the worst was Finnegan´s double in "Shore Leave" - the guy is an old man and looked nothing like Finnegan!

Re: Embarassing moments during good episodes

When I was a little kid, I was kinda embarrassed by Kirk being apparently naked in the android creating machine in What Are Little Girls Made Of?

The constant kissing on the show bothered me also. Glad I outgrew that part.

Speaking of "What are Little Girls Made of": that Kirk can break off that massive stalagtite is simply ludicrous - and I´m not even talking about the shape of that thing

Considering how anal the censors and the network could be in those days (hell, they thought Vina's slave dance in "The Cage" to have been too provocative) it's amazing that stalactite got through the censorship.

That was the scene where I first tuned into Star Trek. The cave looked fake, the big ugly guy with a woman's voice calling to him, and a phallic cave rock. It looked so ridiculous to me at 15, it put me off for another week.

Re: Embarassing moments during good episodes

You asked for it.
Just so everyone knows what we're talking about.



I saw this episode so many times and didn't notice anything untoward until this was pointed out to me.

Now I watch this episode in anticipation of this scene

I also somehow never noticed this as a kid or teenager either. Not until I was into my late twenties or so.

I seem to recall Mirror Spock sporting curly hair for his fight scene in sickbay....

I also never noticed it until it was mentioned. Now I can never forget it.

Re: Embarassing moments during good episodes

I love Arena, but every time I watch it and hear Spock say "hot pursuit", I laugh. It just seemed so out of place.

In Obsession: Spock trying to plug vent with his hands. Someone as smart as Spock had to know this wasn't gonna happen, right? ""I'll spread my fingers out to cover more of the vent! that'll be even more effective!"

Obsession is a good episode? A living creature that can travel at high warp speed, penetrate shields and screens and then a simple 'reverse the fan' in a crewmembers quarters sucks it out of the room?

As soon as the creature left the planet----it stopped being a good episode.
