Advertisements So I've been watching the cleaned up and FX enhanced version of Star Trek:TOS. I'm being reminded how hokey some of that series was, but I do have to say that the updated FX do flow really well. Except for one place: The Clock. A couple of episodes (The Corbomite Manuever being one) have a countdown clock that the camera "cuts" to on occasion. In the original broadcast, the clock had numbers printed on cylinders like many clocks from the 60's and 70's had. Since these shots were always just of the clock, they were easy to replace. But the way they did it is just odd. Instead of just cleaning up the shot, or replacing the clock with something a little less archaic, they show the clock on what appears to be a screen, but with the numbers rotating as they did on the older version of the clock. Not only is it a strange way to pay homage to the original shot, but it's really fake looking. So that's my gripe for the day.
