For some reason I decided to start watching the original Star Trek series tonight. I've never seen it, at least not to my knowledge. As far as opening episodes go "The Man Trap" is quite good, but goodness, some of the scenes are overdone. There was this one near the end where McCoy is being attacked by an alien, Spock is trying to fight her off, and McCoy (for reasons I can't go into for spoilers) was just standing there not reacting, and it was the worst fake-fighting I've ever seen. Followed by the worst overdrawn angst.

It was awful, but gloriously so. Clicking next episode in 3, 2....
