The Original Star Trek Episodes

I am probably going to piss off a lot of people with this, but I am wondering why the 1960’s version of Star Trek is a cult classic. Really painful to watch. Far more than the awful acting of the Shatner, the stories just suck.

I just began watching it again via Netflix streaming, and the first three episodes are just plain awful.

Huge plot holes, bad acting, awful story lines, it really is crap, and painful to watch.

However, it is intriguing to see how many South Park plot lines came from the series. I keep connecting the dots.  Those boys sure were fans of both Star Trek and the Twilight Zone episodes.
