Trekathalon TOS: 2-1 Amok Time

The Jiffy Pop Wedding Collection.
This episode shouldn't work.  It's campy, cornball, and to sincere, and yet, it does work.  I got the impression the old Vulcan Gal knew what was going on the entire time, from the challenge, to McCoy's 'treatment' for Kirk.  Very well put together episode.  When Trek was good enough to overcome the big pile of stinky-limburger that it could have been, it's a great episode.

We also get the first appearance of the iconic 'trek fight music (currently my Mom's ringtone), Chekov the lost Monkee appears, and, as is the tradition with TOS guest stars, Arlene Martel (T'Pring) is gorgeous.  She's still acting!

I feel like the biggest dork in the work for getting emotional at the "Parted but never parted" exchange.
