going to have to link to the wiki, i can't remember the plotlines from the wondrous New Wave/Sci-fi of the 60's naming schemas

Season 1 episodes

Voted for "A Taste of Armageddon". I always liked the way it takes off the implacable stupidity of war.

Devil in the Dark over CityForever, Balance of Terror, Space Seed.

(I haven't seen any of these in 15-20 years)

Dr Morbius, Monday, 14 July 2008 13:16 (ten years ago) Permalink

I've seen about two-thirds of these. City on the Edge of Forever gets my vote - it's amazing how so much story gets packed into a mere 45 minutes, and yet flows perfectly.

Duane Barry, Monday, 14 July 2008 13:30 (ten years ago) Permalink

(probably 52 minutes uncut. ah, '60s TV and its 'limited' ads)

that's the accelerated aging one, yeah?

no its shirtless Sulu and Spock with emotions

I really *want* to vote "Where No Man Has Gone Before" just for glowy-eyed Sally Kellerman and Gary Lockwood, but my heart says "City."

Naked Time!

I could pretty much watch any of them though.

jel --, Monday, 14 July 2008 16:31 (ten years ago) Permalink

yeah very few clunkers in Season 1 (Charlie X is pretty meh, Shore Leave is too silly even by Season 3 standards). I do like that in Season 1 all the minor characters (Uhura in particular, Nurse Chapel, Sulu, etc.) get waaay more screen-time and attention, they cast has way more of an ensemble feel than later episodes.

Shakey Mo Collier, Monday, 14 July 2008 17:16 (ten years ago) Permalink

Watching through the full series still, almost at the end of Season 2 I can safely say S1 is way way way better, and Shakey OTM about the "minor" characters getting more screen time. There was a stretch I just passed where I didn't even see Sulu (arguably my fave character) for about 7 eps. Very bummed as I like Uhura and Sulu a lot more than, say, Scotty/Chekov.

Will M., Monday, 14 July 2008 17:43 (ten years ago) Permalink

Chekov's inclusion was pretty lame at first - altho the attempt to obscure a Monkees/Beatles cash-in character by making him Russian is pretty funny

Shakey Mo Collier, Monday, 14 July 2008 17:46 (ten years ago) Permalink

and Season 1 may be better in general, but Season 2 is where the series hits its real high points (Amok Time! but also Mirror, Mirror, a handful of others).

i have seen all of these in the last two months since i recently got the DVD set.

I really *want* to vote "Where No Man Has Gone Before" just for glowy-eyed Sally Kellerman and Gary Lockwood

great episode + one of the awesome indelible images of the series

balance of terror, squire of gothos, arena, corbomite maneuver, conscience of the king (aka perry mason in space) and court martial were all great

I thought I'd seen all of the original series, but this thread has made me realise I've seen hardly any.

Just watched the "City on the edge of forever" for the first time since 1967, probably.

balance of terror, squire of gothos, devil in the dark, the corbomite maneuver, arena, even miri all shamefully robbed here for the novelty of spock in jeans

Gotta say that image at the top from Charlie X gave me motherfucking nightmares when I was a kid.

Ian from Etobicoke (Phil D.), Sunday, 26 January 2014 20:32 (four years ago) Permalink

Yeah, that episode also stuck with me, Charlie X innit?

Charlie X on right now, I'd never seen it before. Uhura improvising a coquettish love song about Spock, to the tune of Charlie Is My Darling, while a smirking Spock accompanies her on his Vulcan space harp - one of the highlights! Robert Walker (Jr) is good in this.
