I’m a Trekker. Have been since the latter half of the 1960s. TOS was a wonderful show, full of things both stupid and fabulous. The 1970s had all of us salivating for a new show. We didn’t know if we wanted an all new series, or a continuation of TOS (which we didn’t call TOS back then, btw, it was simply Star Trek). We got a couple of movies out if and then, all of a sudden :dubious: , we get The Next Generation. An all new series to satiate our Trek monkeys.
But, That first season kind of sucked. Hell, we didn’t really get a consistantly good weekly series till sometime around the third season. And then came DS9, which started of so well, then fell in boringnessativity. A few good eps every now and again, but way too much soap opera crap. Voyager tried to kill all things Trek, and Enterprise actually succeeded.
Battlestar Galactica also comes to mind. Some prefer the MTV edits and gutsy feel of the new version, while others still prefer the campy fun of the original.
Doctor Who gets mentioned here as well.
Should new series keep on being made? Why or why not? Any thoughts, suggestions, complaints, etc…?
