One of the horror genre's "most widely read critics" (Rue Morgue # 68), "an accomplished film journalist" (Comic Buyer's Guide #1535), and the award-winning author of Horror Films of the 1980s (2007), The Rock and Roll Film Encyclopedia (2007) and Horror Films of the 1970s (2002), John Kenneth Muir, presents his blog on film, television and nostalgia, named one of the Top 100 Film Studies Blog on the Net.
This week on the blog will devoted to a celebration of Star Trek's anniversary. The classic Gene Roddenberry series first aired 51 years ago, September 8th. So I will post reviews of my top twenty episodes, as well as reader lists for the top 20 episodes this week. On Friday, I will tally all the lists, and provide a definitive list of the top 20 episodes (as decided by those who read this blog).
Although last year was the fiftieth anniversary of Star Trek, this year is a big celebration for another reason too. Star Trek: Discovery Bows on the 24th of September, in just a few short weeks, and it's the first series since Enterprise ended in 2005.
Also, I am nearly done with my review of every episode of the original Trek! (I should finish up by mid-October, I believe.)
So, I hope you will join me this week to celebrate 51 years of Star Trek in the pop culture. The first reader list will be posted soon (at a rate, this point, of 2 a day).
