  • EXCELLENT SYNTHESIS OF SCI-FI AND CHARACTER PIECE

    9.3
    While elements of "The Tholian Web" are comically hyperbolic (such as Chekov's over-the-top fish-eye POV shot of Spock, and some of Shatner's floating)-- which is typical of the entire Original Series -- this remains one of the top five Trek episodes, mainly due to the excellent character writing between Spock and McCoy and the great performances by Nimoy and Kelley. The plot -- Kirk being thrown into his own private universe and the subsequent miliatry and emotional crises that result on board the "Enterprise" after he disappears -- is prime sci-fi and classic "Trek" writing. "The Tholian Web" is definitely the best episode of the third season (which isn't saying much considering how bad the third season is), one of the best of the Original Series and of the entire Star Trek franchise.
