i get to play at being irresponsible

i have become a trekkie, and it's scaring the crap out of me. i mean, it was bound to happen sooner or later: what with my exposure at a young age to the original series via my dad's own shameless obsession, and my obsession with all things kitsch, and all things sixties, and all things kitsch from the sixties.

no interest in next generation/voyager/whatever spin-offs they run these days, though. the original series is the best for the same reason that the 2009 reboot was awesome: the original cast. there's a reason why so many sci-fi nerds prefer kirk over picard. and let's face it, walter koenig's chekov was the most adorable character ever, it takes a lot to make that davy jones wig look attractive.

i don't care if anybody else thinks i'm a nerd, star trek: TOS is pretty much the most entertaining tv show i've seen ever. also, ontd_startrek is the best livejournal community i've ever been in, ever.

"Give Him a Great Big Kiss" has one of the all time great lines - "He's good/bad but he's not evil."
