Essential Season Two TOS.
When it comes to ranking the "best" episodes of The Original Series, there are Top Ten lists ... and there are TOP TEN lists. Unlike Season One, episodes from Seasons Two and Three are rarely represented. Believing these Top Ten lists are imbalanced in many ways, your Refit Team has revisited all three seasons of TOS to discover what we believe are true "essential viewing" recommendations. In this episode of Standard Orbit, we continue our coverage from Episode 119; delving deeply into Season Two with a more finely tuned eye and critical perspective.
Our goal for this episode, and for all of the TOS "Essentials" podcasts, is to offer a new and perhaps in many ways - different "best of" list for each season so that newcomers to The Original Series can use our recommendations as an essentials starter kit; episodes chosen from each season and not heavily influenced by any one in particular. We believe our listeners will truly enjoy these comprehensive recommendations compiled by their very own Refit Crew; podcasters and friends they have come to know and trust here on Standard Orbit.
