Trekkies Bash New Star Trek Film As 'Fun, Watchable'
If I were to start watching Star Trek with absolutely no past experience with it, which series would you guys recommend I start with?
I'm getting very tempted to start with the original series, since it's on Netflix.If you're in the US, TOS is all free on YouTube.

For instance, there's supposedly an episode ofTNGin which Picard "lives" through a whole life as an alien in a kind of a dream sequence. I'd like to see that.
I'd like to see just about any Borg-related episodes of any series
Maybe a spoiler:Simon Pegg was excellent.
Saw the movie Friday night. It was my first Star Trek movie ever. I had some knowledge about Star Treks, but in no way I'm a fanboy. Still the movie was quite enjoyable. it was a lot better than I expected. Only thing that bothered me during the movie was that I felt that I missed things because my knowledge about Star Trek was lacking.
Maybe a spoiler:Simon Pegg was excellent.IMDB exists. There are no casting spoilers.
I didn't think it was all that cheesy or campy, either.
I watched it on Sunday. Loved it. It was a great movie. I didn't think it was all that cheesy or campy, either.
I must say that the way Abrams seamlessly wove in classic quotes and behavior with the new story was artful.
I was just saying that in my opinion, it wasn't over the top. It was close, but not over. Never said that everybody else was required to feel the same. I felt there was a lot more to it than just a giant wink.

I think it's easy to criticize the original series from a position of hindsight. The reality, though, is that they tackled some very tough issues that couldn't be tackled in a non sci-fi setting. Sure, there was some cheese on that cracker, but at the core, the show was deeper than most people give it credit for.And I say this having never really cared for the original show - or any other subsequent TV series.I saw the movie on Saturday and really enjoyed it. Five or ten percent was "over the top" Hollywood crap, but as a whole, the movie entertained me thoroughly for two hours.A couple things that were WAAAAY too Hollywood for me:SPOILERS:
