January 6, Great, but watch out for male and female sexual stereotypes I started watching this with my 9 year old son. The series is very entertaining for him and me and we will continue to watch it.
I appreciate that the series was progressive for the era, but this show reminds me how far we've progressed since then. I don't have a problem with my children watching positive but age appropriate sexual role models, which in my mind means people hugging, kissing, a little passion and treating each other with respect and acting maturely. However, Star Trek is almost comical in it's view of woman as sexual creatures. Watch out for the outdated sexual stereotypes-- all women wear sexy miniskirts, and two out of three of the main woman characters are assistants to men and often do little except stand there and look attentive, such as Yeoman Rand nor Nurse Chapel.
Uhura's shapely legs are often framed quite conspicuously and wow are those skirts short. We're only on episode 8, and I've already had to pause and talk about the sexual allure presented in "Mudd's Women", Charlie slapping a woman's rear and the almost-rape scene in "Charlie X", and in "The Naked Time" why Janice rand naked Yeoman Rand need a man's help Spock to get past the drunk man into the elevator when I'm sure she's strong enough to figure it out on her own, etc. These topics are presented in an innocent and light way, as was appropriate for television in But I had to pause the show a couple of times and comment about why those things were wrong and 'outdated'.
And I'll tough briefly on the male stereotypes: men must always Janice rand naked a strong, tough face to the outside world. Forget your true emotions, let's fix this with a fist fight! While the women seem lose their he too often, men are always able to be strong and quick and can fix any problem. Clearly each episode tells us a moral story, but the moral may not be understood by some children. Other then that, we've seen about 5 corpses. I guess it's okay for a 9 year old to see that, and he's seen worse elsewhere, and I can't shelter my kids forever, but I'm not sure I feel good about that.

September 26, Honest review from the biggest Trekkie: Bad lessons about women for modern kids This isn't an easy review to write. I am a long time trekkie - since the age of five - and the original is my greatest love. But this show just isn't for modern. Star Trek may have been progressive for the 60's but it wreaks of Mad Men era politics today.
Nearly every single episode has a slight against women who come in four flavors: damsels, secretaries, vamps, and traitors. Main characters say things like "women are biologically more prone to fear" Wolf in the Fold and "female service members always leave to start Janice rand naked family" Who Mourns for Adonais.
One episode features a female crew member falling in love with a bad guy, being abused by him, and betraying the crew for him Space Seed. Another features a female robot described as a "geisha" who kisses men on command What are Little Girls Made Of. Most of the outfits women wear are scant to nonexistent. At one point one of the more prominent women on the main cast the captain's secretary asks the captain why he never looks at her legs Miri.
One professional woman is actually sexually harassed by the entirety of the male cast Is There in Truth No Beauty. One of the first episodes features three prostitutes who use a drug to make themselved prettier and marry lonely miners under false pretenses Mudd's Women.
And on, and on, and on. It really is a nightmare at times. And it's a shame because much of the messaging on war and conflict at as relevant today as 50 years ago. Janice rand naked action is always exciting. The chemistry between the three le is legendary.
It is the only sci-fi franchise that is optimistic about the future.
But, gosh darn it, it comes at such a cost. While TNG has it's faults it is a better show from an egalitarian standpoint. Start your kids on that one. This title contains: Sexy stuff. Helped me decide. Read my mind 1. Adult Written by CaptainSensible December 28, Ignore the virtue-allers - it's great fun! There's a lot of pious types on here showing their moral worth by complaining about some very minor issues that they have discovered. Like with all witch hunters, if they look hard enough they'll find a witch. The rest of us, young and old alike, can get on with enjoying classic entertainment like this.
It really is timeless, imaginative, unsanitised TV. The role model traits of heroism, self-sacrifice, taking responsibility, non-harm, courage and strength are all there, as well as a lot of very deep philosophical concepts. Just enjoy it and don't fall into the miserable censorious reality of the neo-puritans who will soon be sitting staring at blank walls in case they view something sinful. Read my mind. Adult Written by AllAges August 13, The Original Adventures Occasionally sexist undertones, but wonderful series for all-ages. Parent of a 9 and year-old Written by Jenny C. February 25, A revolutionary tv show I grew up watching this show on a black and white tv from age 6.
Some episodes scared the crap out of me but that's how caught up I was in the story, especially for watching it in black and white! My imagination filled in the Janice rand naked And that's why I consider this one of the best tv shows out there: it conveyed the story without flashiness and completely engaged the viewer.
That being said, I want to point out after having read many of the comments here that one cannot view every aspect of the show through the eyes of someone in It wasn't done in that year so it's unfair to judge it that way. It was written and produced in originally, a time when women were still trying to find a foothold in making their own way, in making names for themselves.
Yes, unfortunately, there are some stereotypes seen but that was, again, due to the times and mindsets of those in charge at CBS. Roddenberry wanted to give women their due, and that's obvious in his casting a woman as second-in-command, something plainly seen in the original pilot "The Cage". Majel Barrett was that officer No matter how Roddenberry fought for it, they turned him down and asked for a different pilot. Roddenberry had to choose his battles, and Janice rand naked the way during the three year run that they had, he was able to sneak in women's lib, political messages, toleration for people different from you, and minor cursing, which was absolutely unheard of in those days.
Honestly, the only word I remember was "hell", and it was extremely appropriate for the episode.
Kirk had just allowed the woman he loved to die to preserve the timeline they had accidentally gone into the past They couldn't risk it. After suffering this, Kirk had every right to say to the crew, "Let's get the hell out of here". Roddenberry was fined for it but to him it was worth it. Some other notes: visible navels weren't acceptable to CBS standards, which is why costumes were strategically deed. Only in the third year could navels be seen bc finally viewers and censors didn't flip by seeing a belly button. The mini skirts were loved by the actresses.
I read Nichelle Nichols comment in an article that the ladies found them liberating bc for so long they'd been forced to cover their legs, pretending that they didn't have a femininity. They were women looking for husbands Mudd was a con man, plain and simple, and was looking to make a buck.
These women, in their natural state, were rather homely and had had no luck in finding men who wanted them, so they fell for Mudd's ploy. The point is, it was pointed out as being wrong and the wrong was righted, AND the women still found love and their "happily ever after" Personally, I felt that the episode was a kind of setup for another show to spring from Star Trek but it never came to fruition. Yes, the "weak" and "helpless" women in the crew Janice Rand needing Spock's help with the amorous crewman were a bit annoying and still are today bc really, what military person is going to be unable to defend themselves but again, I remember when these Janice rand naked were written and the backwards mindsets existing at the time.Janice rand naked
