I love old Star Trek

"What caused it?" - Captain Kirk
"Unkown captain. It's like nothing we've dealt with before!" - Spock
Joost has a ton of the old '60s episodes you can watch for free (with some mildly offensive Cadillac ads atm), and I'm very much enjoying the juicy colors of late '60s film; the hilariously ridiculous costumes (check out the spacesuits on the top image!); the saucy female uniforms (who needs to cover them polyester underpants?);
the greasy, pointy hairdos; the plethora of chirping, whining plastic devices that can scan and interpret just about anything; the high-cut shirts and pants and saucy lil' boots; the multiuseful electrohypodermic needles that go "woosh";
ye olde spock two-finger shoulder stun with Kirk's ubiquitous "you've got to teach me that"; the undeniably sexy Uhuru; Kirk's flat delivery yet somehow engaging presence;
angry Bones and his perpetual battles with Mr. Logic; Sulu and Scotty and their goofy breakdowns -- it just doesn't get any better, does it?
