I've finished season two(2).  I'm winning.
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

She was overwhelming me with texts the other night, describing each and every episode of TOS that she liked, and each one that she hated....

The reason TV networks tend to air shows out of order (or at least in a different order than they were produced) is that they like to air what they consider to be the stronger or more audience friendly episodes first, so that way they'll attract a larger audience, who will hopefully stick around during the weaker or less audience friendly episodes based on the strength of the first few episodes.  Which makes it frustrating if your show has a story arc each season and the network inattentively airs an episode with a huge revelation too early.  Anyway, that's what they did with Star Trek, which is why The Man Trap aired first even though Where No Man Has Gone Before was the pilot.

The reason for all the changes is because that was the second pilot,so they were reusing a lot of stuff from the first pilot but the cast had changed a little.

Roddenberry had been pushing to have Kelly as the ships doctor since the first pilot but NBC wouldn't let him because Kelly was known for playing villains in westerns at the time(He was even in a episode of The Lone Ranger),after the series was greenlit Roddenberry had enough clout to cast the people he wanted in the show because the network was not likely to cancle a new show just because they didn't like some of the supporting actors.

How come Futurama says there are 79 original episodes and South Park says it's 72 or 73?

Actually there's 81.

79 (one hour) episodes aired.

The Cage makes 80

And there is the original version of "Where No Man Has Gone Before" that never aired, it has a longer intro, and each section has titles "Act 1, Act 2, etc.".  It's on the remastered disc set.

Don't know how you can get to 73, even if you don't count both pilots and count the 2 part episode as one that gets you to 77.

Oh, and PS:

It's spelled Odyssey (from Odysseus).

PS: I don't care

Ok I do care, but the iPhone didn't do the spell check and I don't have a computer right now. I am insulted you assumed I didnt know the Greek character it came from

This is like Opposite-World or something.  My head would explode if my mom did this.

Thanks Im. Sorry if I was defensive but I was embarrassed. I have always had a problem with spelling :(


Anyway, as soon as my sister goes into my room, back to more Star trek. Seriously, no one in my family likes it. I'm a freak

I know the feeling in my family it is the same for me and Babylon 5,but at least my mom likes Babylon 5.  I can't watch it when other people are in the room because they will not be quite.

My dad was always watching it... He essentially has every episode of TOS memorized.  Then he and I watched TNG together every, what was it, Sunday night? Saturday?  Anyways....

I'm sure most of my mom's knowledge comes from dad forcing her to sit through it with him,  but she has her own favourite episodes... specifically A Piece Of The Action.

My favorite episodes of TOS:
Conscience of the King
City on the Edge of Forever
The Corbomite Maneuver
A taste of Armageddon
Balance of terror
Journey to Babel
Amok Time
Devil in the dark
Let that be your last battlefield

I enjoyed TNG a lot, but TOS always had the better characters and sometimes
better stories.
