So I have just recently been looking at watching TOS for the first time. But the episodes that I have are all out of order. I looked at the list here:Wikipedia Article
These are all jumbled up because they are catlouged by chronological order. Should I watch them in this order or should I watch them in the order they were originally aired. Does anyone have the list of episodes as they were aired? Thanks.
I usually watch them in the order they were produced not the order they were first shown. You could also watch them in the order of their stardates - which I assume is the order they were written.
In truth, they are mostly standalone and rarely build on a previous episode. I think some minor characters are better introduced if you watch them in order of production - plus, you don't have to switch back and forth between Enterprize-models they used.
I really recommend watching "The Cage" - I think it's a good episode. Most of it will be shown again in "The Menagerie" though.
