I'm going to introduce a term here, for convenience sake for the remainder of the thread. It's a term I keep seeing being used in many different ways: mise en scene. Technically it refers to staging, the placement of items in a set, etc. The other way I see it being used frequently is more along the lines of "everything but the acting, directing and writing". I had a short, incomplete list upstream of the things that, for me, made TOS. It does include the acting, the directing and the writing, but it's also the mise en scene. In the second, broader definition, all those things would fall under mise en scene. The reason I bring this up is that folks keep bring up narrow definitions, and the sum of the TOS parts are definitely more than those narrow definitions, and a major part of what brings pleasure to fans of TOS when watching.
