WHO MOURNS FOR ADONIS?
Greek God Apollo meets crew of Enterpise. Yep, it is as good as it sounds. Actually I find it funny. You got to love an episode where a giant hand grabs onto the Enterprise! Not exactly a Masterpiece of an episode. However it is still fairly fun to watch.
This is definitely in the list of "Must See if you want to know anything about Star Trek" It is poetic, well acted, and one of the episodes that defined later Star Treks.
It was the first time people saw Vulcan. Although it isn't much to see... a red background and some sand. Wow.
This is the classic: It has Spock and the fight to the death with Kirk... and Spock's smile.
The plot was also pretty mature. It was probably pretty "out there" for the time. I mean... Kirk says "Reproduction" GASP! (Actually, I watched it as a little kid and had NO IDEA what they were talking about or even what was going on. All I got was Spock was getting married. So you could probably watch it with your kids and they wouldn't be shocked.)
Definitely worth watching.
