The advantage of being fascinated by science fiction series is to have seen many of the Star Trek episodes while our childish eyes made us immune to the “reality” of what was presented on the screen. At that time, we saw only what our imagination made us see; but that doesn’t make it uninteresting to revisit some epic moments, such as the mythical battle between Kirk and the Gorn creature in the episode Arena that was initially aired in 1967.
I remember seeing this episode, but I confess that I really had no notion that it was that epic.
Forget all the stunt doubles you’ve seen in every action movie; forget all the digital effects that turn a hand-to-hand fight into violent carnage; nothing compares to this fight sequence between Kirk and the Gorn… which you can see. Right now!
(This is one of those cases where it’s so bad, so bad… that it turns around and becomes exceptional! :))
