Happy 50th anniversary Star Trek!

I've been making my way through season two of Star Trek at a much slower rate than season one, so I'm only half way through the season, but I figured that today would be a good day to get my thoughts down. I know, "The Man Trap" aired September 8, 1966, but it actually aired two days earlier in Canada on September 6, 1966, so as a Canadian, I'm celebrating early. :-)

What I've noticed so far is how they emphasized the characters this season. First season, the main focus was on the trio of Kirk, Spock, and McCoy, but this season, you see more interaction with the other main crew. Scotty's had more to do, Uhura doesn't just sit there and say "Hailing frequencies open", and Chekov, while introduced this season, has more personality to him than the random navigators they had come through the bridge. I feel like Sulu hasn't had much, but George Takei was absent for a bit while filming The Green Berets so maybe that has something to do with it. I guess it reflects how life would be aboard a starship. As you spend more time with people, your relationships grow deeper and everyone gets a lot closer.

Review of Star Trek season two, episodes 1-14 (spoilers I guess) )

I feel like the majority of the TOS episodes that I had seen before this re-watch were from season two. Maybe this was TOS' best season. Looking ahead to season three, none of the episode titles look familiar.
