Started Star Trek TOS with The Man Trap.

This is actually incredibly engaging so far. The outdatedness doesn't take away from anything. Very impressive.

One of my favorite episodes of the series right there.

Just finished it. The climax was obviously very hokey and there's some unintentional humor because of the budgetary restrictions, but the strength of the story shone through.

That's pretty much the way it is with all TOS episodes. There's always a few moments that'll make you laugh unintentionally (the intern in the Horta costume always makes me chuckle a bit), but at this point that only adds to the charm. Meanwhile, it tackles some really deep and interesting subjects... well, most of the time, at least.

Is anyone else watching the Ken Burns documentary on the Vietnam War this week? The first two parts were good, although I'm hoping part three gets more into what happened on the Viet Cong side.

Watching Ep. 3 of ST: TOS. Charlie X.

So far, it’s pretty good. Once again, despite the budgetary restrictions and technical shortcomings, the story pulled me in.

Also, I’m reminded a lot of Dommy by Charlie’s character...

My parents are huge Star Trek fans, so I watched this when I was about five years old. It freaked me out so much.

Watching E4. Why... um... what the **** is up with Spock's eyebrows? And why does he sound like he's doing a very very, slight, subtle Asian accent?

Nathan For You's season premiere was stellar.

Can't wait for the next one.

Also watched the third episode of Star Trek: Discovery and the pilot for The Orville.

Discovery's still going strong and The Orville... truth be told, I actually didn't think it was that bad. The humor falls a little flat, but everything else made up for it. I liked how it managed to capture the feel of classic Star Trek.
