So, I am fairly certain that The Empath is the WORST episode of TOS.

No, that would be "Spock's Brain."

I'll try to get this thread back on track by saying I love that anais is getting to watch this stuff with fresh eyes. A friend of mine started on the same trip back when the 2009 Star Trek film came out (and don't start on that one again!).

I will watch another episode tonight. Netflix wasn't working on Sunday and I had to work late yesterday (lame)

Also, I don't care if the thread is off topic, I was just being silly

And they're not all that bad.... sometimes it seems a bit too out of place, like the explosions in space for instance seem WAAY too digital.  But there are some nice shots of planets that have been re-done.

I am on the beloved space hippies episode now.  I'm fairly certain the hippies are supposed to annoy the hell out of us... social commentary.

Maybe I'm wrong, but all they remastered was how the planets looked from space.  You wouldn't even notice it if you hadn't seen the original cave drawing images.

Did the correct the scale of the ships from Doomsday Machine?  I remember watching that when I was little, before I knew what a continuity error was, and thinking "Why isn't that ship that looks like the Enterprise any bigger than the shuttle I saw earler?"

Yes, that one they did a great job showing a small Enterprise flying around a massive planet killer (a dozen starships could now fit into it like Decker says at one point).  I think they scaled the shuttle appropriately but I can't picture that scene in my head now...

There are a few matte paintings where I like the originals better, and still look good when you switch to the original shots on the Blu-Ray, like the refinery in the window of the office in Devil in the Dark, but most of the new effects are well done and maintain the feel of the original shots, and some improve on the originals like the ones in The Doomsday Machine.  On a big HD screen the original effects look terrible, they used a lot of layers of optical printing on those and the grain looks real bad on anything larger than about 20 to 25 inches.

We may be nerds,  but we're also non-conformists. If you want to be one of us you have
to dress like us and listen to the same music we do. So lederhosen and Devo albums
all around!

The shuttle going into the planet killer is at 5:13 in that youtube clip, and looks like a dot,  the enterprise battling the thing is in the 3 to 4 minute area.

The Enemy Within

What the hell is that unicorn dog thing? Is Kirk supposed to be evil Kirk? Because he has no goatee

Ok, ya know what is annoying? That the captains log is omniscient. Unbeknownst to us at the time, an alternate Captain Kirk was created by the malfunction.
How the fuck do you know, Kirk?
