    I think John was spot on in saying about Obsession that there are: “Worse episodes of Star Trek that I like better”. Literally seconds before this quote came up on the podcast and John and Ken were describing it as flat and unmemorable and I was thinking to myself that it could best be described as rating a consistent 4.5 out of 10 all the way through the 50 minutes. Whereas many ‘worse’ episodes, say “Way to Eden” or “Whom Gods Destroy” or “Patterns of Force” to use a not-season-three example, move above or below this mark as they go along, giving you memorable moments in amongst the *bad* things.

    Maybe these aren’t great examples personally as I love those three episodes even if the average fan doesn’t; although I acknowledge their silliness. (Context: I don’t think City on the Edge of Forever is the greatest ever trek, or even in the top 5 plus.)

    • Good notes, Matthew. As we always say, every episode is someone’s favorite and someone’s least favorite. “Enjoyment” is just one of those subjective things.

    History of Star Trek TOS on Consumer Home Video : This Episode was released as part of “The Captains” series VHS Pack – and as such – had it’s own exclusive cover. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d85d165ffce693aa5da4fb0f066677f5d4f345167ef3ae10626219409d0af654.jpg
