Since those reviews were mostly my posts then I guess you need to blame me. Sorry if I seemed overly critical, it is the only ST series I find that I can watch again and again, although the Next Generation is probably my favourite.
You do make very valid points: How can anyone compare a sixties TV show, on a sixties TV budget, to an '80's, '90's or '00's TV show?
Yet it is only because of it's success that the later ST series even exist. Please feel free to add your own reviews.
I still feel that there were some really poor storylines in the original series though, particularly in the third season when it had already been cancelled. However, your points in those threads about the Character interactions making the story a well-made. ST has always been about the characters, something they forgot in 'ST:Nemesis'.
