So I've started watching Season 3 and just finished "Is There In Truth No Beauty?" So far, I don't think the 3rd Season is anywhere near as bad as its reputation, though the slashing of the budget is obvious. The Third Season of Star Trek kinda reminds me a bit of the third season of Kung Fu in that both of these third seasons seem to go for trippy, mindbending stories. Spectre of the Gun was a good episode IMO. I really liked it. I also enjoyed Elaan of Troyius. Paradise Syndrome, I loved. Great locations, music, and I enjoyed the story. A couple of over-the-top Shatnerisms not withstanding, such as the infamous "I am Kirok!" Is There In Truth No Beauty was great. It feels worthy of the best of Star Trek. Spock's Brain is as bad as its reputation: embarrassing dialogue. It's like The Alternative Factor. The Empath is next for me, which I haven't seen since the mid-90s, but I remember it being very good. I'll watch it tomorrow and let you guys know what I think.
