    Because TOS is...human...and not some stiff politically correct joke like TNG. The men act like emasculated weeners and the women act like they're frigid...except for Deanna Troi and Beverly Crusher...and the uninhibited Lwaxana Troi ain't too shabby either.;) There is nothing real about it. People are gonna take the TOS women anyday in their uniform skirts as opposed to TNG "women" in their unisex longjohns. :guffaw:

    I think they made more TNG episodes than TOS episodes, but I may be wrong...

    Picard is just more stiff, he has a different command style.

    Honestly I think TNG will never surpass TOS because when i was growing up in the 90s I noticed that pop culture seems to be more familiar with TOS than TNG and I'm not getting any feeling that this has changed much if at all.

    TNG has surpassed TOS in terms of my own personal enjoyment, and that's all that really matters to me.

    Yeah right, whenever somebody says the truth they're a troll. What I'm sayin' is pretty damn obvious. Why then the slouching back to TOS with the 2009 Abrams movie??? Why the half-assed attempt to get back to basics? I'll tell ya why. Because the liberals in Hollywood and paramount went too far with the cerebral unisex longjohns HS, that's why. You got women acting so uptight they seen frigid and men scared to death to look at any woman in a sexually suggestive way for risk of offending their human dignity. What liberal hypersensitive HS. You sure didn't have that hypersensitive politically correct BS overshadowing the production of TOS back in the 1960s. That is why TOS will always be better. But that's the way paramount wanted it. Who told them to put TOS out to pasture with Undiscovered Country? Nobody. Who told them to knock off Kirk in Generations? Nobody. Now Shatner is too old and fat to play Kirk. I'm open-minded. Put some 30-ish actors in front of some spiffy ipanels and have them act like men and I'll buy it....and some space babes with enough basic intelligence to keep their mouths shut while the men handle things and I'll buy that too. This hyper-progressive Aldous Huxley crap just ain't gonna work anymore...but you can't tell paramount that. They'll blow another 200 million on a 2nd Abrams movie before they'll learn.:lol: p.s. I'm a troll for sayin' all this, right?:devil:

    An opinion is one person's truth.

    Both shows are a product of their time. I love them both. If you like one more than the other, good for you. For me, they both offer something different to ponder.

    To show that it wasn't the 20th-Century anymore and that people in that time didn't make a big deal about it.

    They did that in many other ways. They hit you on the head with it in The Neutral Zone.

    Right. But I'm confused. Are you implying that it was HS, or BS, or both, and how do they differ?

    I would think that someone with antiquated views of gender roles such as yours would also oppose gay marriage, but with that double negative, I'm not sure if you mean it or not.
