Since MeTV began running TOS-R episodes, I rarely pull out my DVDs. It is like being a kid again, waiting every week for ST to come on TV.
It definitely takes us back to the syndication days when episodes were butchered to add more commercial time. I tried to watch the MeTV broadcasts but the cuts are just brutal. YMMV.
While I agree with your point, when I saw TOS in my youth, it was cut the same way. The sheer joy of waiting each week for another episode outweighs the editing, for me. 1080p color television now wins over my blurry 13" black and white experience back then, as well!

Re: Last Star Trek Episode You Watched

1966-69: 50 minutes (51 with next week's brief teaser)
1970s and '80s: 46-1/2 minutes
1990's: 44-1/2 minutes
2000's: 43-1/2 minutes
2010's: 43 minutes

Any chance to slip in another jeans or car commercial. 7 minutes of a fifty-minute episode is already gone and that's one-seventh of the entire story content sacrificed for a little more ad revenue. I like MeTV a lot and watch TOS Remastered on the channel pretty frequently, but the original show is so butchered to pieces with missing scenes and bad editing that you're better off streaming on Netflix or getting the discs.

VOY: Unforgettable

A greally great episode that doesn't get talked about much.

Hear, hear. And I'm noticing this new trend where, in the second half of an episode, the channel will have a commercial break, show 3 minutes of the episode, and then cut BACK to the commercial break. DVR doesn't lie! Talk about taking people out of the show.

Anyway, back on topic:
"Where Silence has Lease," thanks to the TNG boards.
