Not Going To Be As Enjoyable Watching TOS With Leonard Nimoy Gone

For a long while at least. I always found a bit of comfort knowing Nimoy and Shatner were still here while watching TOS. That comfort is now halved. IU wish I would have watched a few episodes in the year but to busy working. Well I will watch some Spock centric episodes this week to honor Nimoy. I hope the rest of you all do. RIP Mr. Nimoy.

I will probably watch Amok Time and Journey to Babel.

What about the rest of you?

He did so much. It'll take a while to decide. I thought about his long career when the sad word got out, and for some reason I thought of BAFFLED! and ''Bonanza'' second and third.

Re: Not Going To Be As Enjoyable Watching TOS With Leonard Nimoy Gone

I actually felt like this in 1982 when SPOCK died. It was different because the character was dead, even though the actor lived on. Now, the actor is gone, but the character has long returned. I'll be able to watch Trek as always. We've already lost Kelley and Doohan, but Bones and Scotty are still in space, seeking out and going boldly. So is Spock. That's just how my brain works.

But I totally get where you're coming from.

He's not really gone as long as we remember.

Re: Not Going To Be As Enjoyable Watching TOS With Leonard Nimoy Gone

I plan on watching TWOK, TSFS, and TVH this weekend. It'll be bittersweet with Nimoy, Kelly, and Doohan, all gone; but I appreciate their contribution to giving me so much joy and entertainment for much of my life.
Sadly it's not uncommon now to hear of the passing of a cast member, guest star, writer, producer, etc... Time marches on.

I do amateur movie reviews and was about to start a Star Trek marathon this weekend. Seems even more fitting now. So sad.

I am on Season 3 of the next generation as I weave my way through that series. But I will put that on hold and watch TOS and all their movies.

ST VI for me. I need to again hear him say, "I've died before."

Spock has died before, and will die again (when Quinto passes).

But Nimoy....only once....

I've watched Star Trek several times a week for the last several years, so not planning any special memorial marathon or anything.

Re: Not Going To Be As Enjoyable Watching TOS With Leonard Nimoy Gone

Its often strange to watch a show with a recently passed cast member. I remember how weird it was to watch Hogan's Heroes just after Bob Crane was murdered.

I don't think Nimoy would want any of us to feel down. I think we should appreciate all of the work he did. His skills created a following that has created 5 series and spanned 12 movies and counting. We should be thankful for the memories.

Trek will always be enjoyable, in part, to all the wonderful performances Mr. Nimoy has left us with.
Tonight, I think I will enjoy what should have been an Oscar nominated performance in TMP. (if the DC had been around in '79, it would have)

I'm rewatching the first season right now for the memories it stirs in me.
