OLD SCHOOL STAR TREK RETURNS TO THE NEW YORK AIRWAVES (ABOUT FUCKING TIME)
Fellow East Coasters, rejoice with me at the news that WWOR, Channel 9, has brought the original STAR TREK back to the airwaves.
A mainstay on NYC's Channel 11 throughout the seventies and eighties, STAR TREK has been absent for too long from local syndication across the country for a variety of reasons, most notably the Sci-Fi Channel getting it and padding each episode out to an hour-and-a-half (!!!) with cast interviews and other unwelcome geekery — that's what extras on DVDs are for, fucksticks! — but now it's back in the gorgeous remastered prints spruced up for the insanely expensive DVD releases. I don't have to tell you it's good shit, but in case you don't already know that, TRUST YER BUNCHE and watch the motherfucker already if it's airing near you. So check your local listings and be thankful that something good is on Sunday night TV, post-prime time.
Oh, and New Yorkers? STAR TREK airs on Channel 9 on Sunday nights at 11PM. They just started running this past Sunday, so you've missed "The Man Trap," but it only gets better from there.
Maybe now I'll finally get off of my ass and get back to working on EL BUNCHO'S BALLS-OUT STAR TREK .
