Well, I've been watching through Deep Space 9, so dated sfx aren't a shock to me...
Worse yet, I've watched a few original series Doctor Who eps in the past few weeks.
I’ve got to try watching DS9 again it‘s the only “Trek“ series I don‘t own. When it was first on it was a sort of love/hate thing for me. I liked the predominance of “alien” characters (Dax, Quark, Odo) but not so much the humans especially Jake. Did they learn nothing from the near universal fan hatred of Wesley Crusher. Also the fixed nature of operating from a station and the generally darker theme didn’t fit with what appealed to me about all the other Star Trek series. The Bajoran “question” seemed way to preachy and I completely lost interest when the Dominion showed up. Head to head I’ve preferred “Babylon 5” which having been made as a serialized story from the start was more cohesive with my friends and I calling the Star Trek version “Deep Sleep 9.”
I’ve completely lost interest in the new “Dr. Who” after the first season. To many changes of characters and the more “ongoing” vs several episode story arcs caused me to loose interest in trying to watch it weekly. I’m sure I’ll go back and see the all once they’ve run their course but after the first episode I still prefer any of the older versions.
