Which ones?
City on the Edge of Forever and Amok Time. Watched "City" already, and honestly felt a bit more positive towards it than I remember my TOS feelings being. The beginning was unintentionally hysterical but there were some interesting ideas especially towards the end of the episode.

City on the Edge of Forever is pretty universally agreed to be one of the best, if not the best, of TOS. I love it a lot, but I don't know if I'd put it in my top five. Amok Time is more famous for its premise than its execution, but it's still good. Both solid episodes to get an impression of the series from. Although if you have time, I'd recommend The Doomsday Machine as an example of a "the planet is gonna blow up" premise that is actually done well.

Honestly, Star Trek just isn't really up my alley (virtually all pre-HBO TV isn't, to be fair), but I was still fairly impressed with that episode overall. Interesting moral conflict.

Retards love to rag on its production values, even though that's (at best) not even in the ten most important things when making a show/movie. The fact that the show accomplished so much despite its limited budget speaks volumes for the creator's imagination. If anything, they had to compensate for low production value by making the show extremely engaging and intelligent. It's quite possible that if they'd had more money, the show's writing would have suffered for it.

I mean, I normally agree with you that production isn't huge, but I think that only applies at a baseline level. Fundamentally, production values are really what makes student films and stuff like that inferior to a Hollywood product; it's just impossible to be absorbed by something in the same way when it doesn't look convincing. Personally, that means for me that the difference in production between modern studio output isn't too relevant (although great effects can certainly help), but when older stuff has distractingly bad production it makes it impossible for me to really immerse myself in the product.

The premiere was solid tbh.

But it was more Abrams than it was Roddenberry. Although the season has potential to delve into the true Star Trek themes, it does look like it's going to be a lot more similar to Battlestar Galactica than anything else.

The premiere was solid because it honestly was different from any other Star Trek before it. The way the main character plays out and where she ends up at the end of the premiere is extremely intriguing.

Bryan Fuller did have a hand in writing the story for this show, so I definitely have some faith in it and the premiere didn't really take any of that away.

The oddly overdone camerawork and excessive lens flare apparently all goes away after the first two episodes. Everything after those two episodes looks exponentially better.
