Staying with the T.V. Land theme, I am writing to praise and not be cynical about American pop culture this time.
In my humble opinion, the Start Trek T.V. series was groundbreaking. Here was a space ship with a crew that included an African American (Uhura), an Asian (Dr. McCoy), and an alien. (Take that Lou Dobbs) Now that bad boy would have been diverse if it was made in 2007 let alone 1966.
Yeah I know those Trekkies can be kind of nutty; but you know what, they can afford to be, because in Star Trek, they chose a pretty good product to embrace.
Besides, that damn Uhura was kind of hot!
