My absolute favorite TV show of all time is the Original Series Star Trek. I don’t know why. I’m not crazy about any other space shows, and I don’t really care for the extensions of the Star Trek story idea that came along in later years. There was just something about the original series that captured my attention.
I’ve probably watched every episode they made at least a dozen times, maybe more, and I have whole sections memorized. My favorite one is about the Tribbles. It was so silly, but just plain fun. Maybe that’s why these shows appeal to me; they are simple and down-to-Earth (pardon me, but I couldn’t resist that one).
I think the people involved with producing The Original Series demonstrated substantially more creativity than what is seen today, but that’s just my humble opinion.
Do you love Star Trek, too?
