The 10 least successful Christmas radio/TV shows
I admit I ‘get’ the details of the ‘Star Trek’ one — almost every plot device they ever used (including: crewman you’ve never heard of before gets killed early on, Capt. Kirk ‘uses’ and discards a woman to get what he wants) to push the same agenda: Capt. Kirk bringing the American way to the galaxy, by force if necessary... just like the wildly successful adventure of the liberal US government in Vietnam at the time, and in Iraq today. (I think the only one missing is the tilting camera with everybody on the ship falling out of their chairs.)
