Now that I’ve finally left the sexist and oppressive visions that the 1960’s had for future space travel, I can move on to the rigid and unrealistic views encountered in the 1980’s. I shouldn’t be that harsh, considering Roddenberry did indeed have very advanced notions for the show, but I am beginning to wonder if being a Trekkie means enjoying a science fiction oriented soap opera. Yet there were some more enduring and enjoyable themes in this series when compared to the original. So far I would say I enjoy it significantly more than the original. This time I’ve decided to delve in to that taking an episode by episode approach, so that you might be able to pick and choose which episodes you want to watch in the future.
I’ve got a two for one today. Two reviews for the price of one! I’m quickly getting finished up with all the Star Trek movies, ready to move on to TNG if you ask me. I watched #4 and 5 this past week and want to tell you all about it! Especially since the 4th movie is considered one of the best of all the Star Trek films. Warning, spoilers to follow, but you probably should have already seen these films if you are a Trekkie.
