    IMO, Miri is the least offensive of those three, although admittedly it's a close call with PS.

    Plato's Stepchildren is at least unintentionally funny at times, which is more than can be said for the other two.

    MIRI - 1
    AND THE CHILDREN SHALL LEAD - 0
    PLATO'S STEPCHILDREN - 2

    "Miri" is gone. It's not a great episode, but it's definitely a cut above the other two. Resetting for the final round...

    Like I said in the S3 thread, I firmly believe that And the Children Shall Lead is the only episode of this show without the slightest redeeming factor. No unintended comedy, no worthy ideas executed poorly, just 50 minutes of absolute garbage.

    AND THE CHILDREN SHALL LEAD - 0
    PLATO'S STEPCHILDREN - 2

    I was THIS close to saving "Plato's" in the season 3 game, I can't believe it's one of the last two things left here!

    Kind of like choosing between a root canal or a proctology exam...

    I’ll be the Devil’s Advocate and give ATCSL a mercy point. :devil:

    I'll save Plato's Stepchildren then. It's a tad better than ATCSL, and it also has the Uhura/Kirk kiss going for it too.

    And the Children Shall Lead is the, erm, winner. :D

    I also thoroughly dislike The Way to Eden and The Lights of Zetar, but it seems they have one or two fans. Those two along with ATCSL is a real stink-fest. :techman:

    I hope for his sake that he got better roles.

    I actually just watched "The Way To Eden" for the first time yesterday. So terrible! Why is it just bad songs?!?

    Will "And the Children Shall Lead" ever manage not to win?

    I don't think it was even an actual dress - it looks like an old shower curtain that Bill Theiss was about to throw out, until he decided he could save time on creating a costume for Gorgan by just cutting out a hole for the actor's head and calling it a day.

    I'd be surprised if it didn't. There was when it was in a virtual tie with "Spock's Brain", "The Way to Eden" and arguably "The Alternative Factor" as TOS's worst episode, but fan opinion now seems pretty unanimous on it being clearly the absolute bottom of the barrel for TOS.
