||TOS produced a few episodes that were too silly for words. Sometimes they got away with it, sometimes they didn't. This, I'm afraid, was the latter. I enjoyed some parts of it when I was a lot younger, but it's simply way too far over the top my current tastes. Apart from that, you get the sense that everyone on the planet, especially Kirk, had lost their heads. Maybe the planet was pumping out some kind of dopamine enhancer, to help people enjoy themselves, which might explain why they all seemed easily distracted, irresponsible and excitable. Otherwise, they were just a bunch of kids out on a day in the country. Being pursued by television aerials did not help, and that looks especially silly from the modern perspective. An accident of scheduling put this the week after Ensign Martine saw her fiancÚ die, whereas months actually passed in stardate time, but it's still an odd way to recover from a loss like that. I also have to wonder about Yeoman Barrows, who seems to be there simply so that Kirk and McCoy can rescue her (and needs some unarmed combat training). Finally, there's the Vought Corsair that changes to a Mitsubishi Zero - the result of someone cobbling together any old bit of stock footage that they could find. Couldn't they have at least made sure it was the same type of aeroplane? Maybe it was entertaining, but that was about all I can give it.
