# 1 TOS epidode list?
02-18-2010, 08:16 AM
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.

It doesn't really matter what order you watch them in -- each episode is essentially standalone, with a few very minor exceptions.

In general, I would:
1.) Watch one season at a time.
2.) Watch "The Cage" first, if at all.

But even these aren't really hard and fast rules.

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.
