My television is showing the same show on every channel. I really don’t mind watching ____________ (from the 1960′s) and I really love this show because…
It is what I think started my love for science fiction. There is not too many years between my sister and I however whenever she was afraid to watch a TV show alone, I was always forced to endure it also. Thanks to her I suffered through many many nightmares. We watched reruns of Dark Shadows, Twilight Zone, and believe it or not I still (to this day), have flashbacks of a movie she forced me to watch about aliens that had really long fingernails, like hypodermic needles and really huge heads. I have the link to this movie somewhere in my bookmarks but I have too many un-categorized links to even begin searching. If I find it I will post it later in the comment section or something.
Aside from her torturing me, I found a show on my own that I would and have and still do watch over and over and over and over again. It is the original Star Trek series.
I was fascinated as a kid by the world Gene Roddenberry created. All grown up now I do not believe such a society is possible. People going to work because there is a necessity for a job to be filled. A society that does not use monetary rewards. People getting along not only with the other races and religions but also with alien civilizations (which I don’t believe in) is too much to accept. Even though it is more like science fanta-fiction, I still love the show and most of the other incarnations and movies. On a cold winter night I could grab my remote and my DVDs and be very content to see Kirk, Picard, Sisko, Janeway and sometimes even Archer. If you need me and can’t find me; I’ve probably boldly gone!
