    I'm not a slash fan, but I do enjoy the Kirk/ Mc Coy community myself.

    CBS not available in Canada either. Joost doesn't seem to have any episodes.

    CBS would be a great place to watch the remastered episodes too. :(

    i have been saying for awhile this is how something lives in the future.

    when jeremy bretti did holmes it bought a whole new group of people into that fandom.
    and many of them went back and not just read the original canon ( where the word as far as i know first came from) but a lot of them went and seeked out the earlier versions of holmes in the media.

    I wasn't sure about CBS being viewable in Canada, but I figured it was worth a try. As far as I'm aware, they only have the original, un-"remastered" eps available.

    They're all there for me, but upon checking I find that a lot of their content (and particularly that owned by Viacom/CBS) is restricted to US users only (for the usual licensing reasons); I'd been under the (apparently mistaken) impression that it was available globally.

    If I think of another way, I'll post something here.

    [How about we just link to the post, okay? A huge block of text without quote tags to clearly delineate who said what is just asking for confusion. -M']

    ^^^ Just wanted to repost 3 D Master's response to my observation that fans of Star Trek XI were infact becoming interested in past TOS episodes, because of the new Trek movie...

    :) This thread lends more weight to my observation.

    I'm also seeing TOS eps on a local broadcast television channel weeknights at 9 PM. I can't think of the last time that's happened -- must be 20 years ago or more. (This, in addition to the remastered eps showing on a different channel every Sunday.)

    Anecdottally speaking: I just started a new job recently, and I "decorated" my cube with a lot of my Star Trek stuff. I can't tell you how many Gen-X'ers would stop to comment/compliment me on my stuff- and to ask for details from the TOS eps. Apparently they saw the movie- and wanted more details.

    I will say that several of them were TNG fans from their childhoods (which made me feel slightly older than normal)- but they were now wanting more stuff on TOS. City on the Edge of Forever and Trouble with Tribbles seems to be good introductory material. I've had a couple of the "kids" say how much they enjoyed it, and didn't realize it was out there. Of course, I was in my late teens before I ever heard about Forbidden Planet and Metropolis, so ignorance of SF canon is hardly a new phenomenon.

    I've deliberately avoided recommending episodes with too many styrofoam boulders.

    Do you use firefox? You can proxy your IP. That's what I do and I am watching The Man Trap as I type (I'm in Canada). Here's a little guide to show you how.

    Just remember to pick a proxy for the USA.

    Cheers.
