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

TOS was also my 1st trek experience and to me the quintessential Trek... that being said, there have been others that have been good and a large part of my life.

So Yes. I liked it... loved it!

In my opinion you need TOS to appreciate all other forms of Trek.

Not exactly dying of suspense here, but am vaguely wondering the hell you talking about there.

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

TOS is brilliant. One of my all-time favourite shows.

That said, I wish they didn't call back to it so often. Even fan productions are mostly exact replicas of it. Would someone do TNG, at some point ? Or STO. That'd be nice.

I would venture that every STAR TREK fan above a certain age likes TOS. By definition.

To a guy like me, 51, asking if a STAR TREK fan likes TOS seems like asking if the Pope is Catholic.
Honest question, does anyone think theres an age cut off where people generally would prefer one of the later Treks or even not like TOS altogether?

As a 28, almost 29 year old, I always preferred TOS reruns to TNG first runs on BBC2

Its a shame that all the TOS productions put in the time and money to build physical sets, where as fan productions of later shows all use CGI.

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

Like most fans of a certain age, I grew up on TOS and it's still my touchstone where Trek is concerned. It's the only Trek series I own in its entirety.

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

I'm a TNG era boy, I grew up watching Picard and co. But in most respects I actually like TOS more. It's got an infectious feel that appeals to me. I think you need to be "in the zone" to watch it with that kind of hindsight that it was very much a product of its time and make allowances for that, which is something that not everybody seems able to do. But speaking personally I do find it very easy to just pop an episode of TOS in and just let it take me on an adventure.

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

I may only be 26, but reruns of TOS are what ingrained a love of Star Trek into me.

The only response I can give to the questions about whether I love TOS or not are these questions;

Does the Pope shit in the woods? -or- Are bears Catholic?

Call me silly, but I think TOS has aged better than TNG. For a while it looked dated but it seems to have become timeless along the way.

I grew up watching re-runs of TOS on the Beeb and that was the only Trek show, so yes I do enjoy watching.
