Star Trek The Original Series Rewatch: Second Season Overview
A look back at Star Trek's middle period as the TOS Rewatch does the Second Season Overview.

An excerpt:
Worse, though, is that there is almost none of the humanism, the compassion, of the first season. The theme throughout season one was that there are no monsters, only people of different types. But the second season is almost all monsters, from the extragalactic creeps in “Catspaw” to the titular “Doomsday Machine” to Redjac in “Wolf in the Fold” to Nomad in “The Changeling” to Vaal in “The Apple” to the giant amoeba in “The Immunity Syndrome” to the cloud creature in “Obsession.” The exceptions—the giant floating omelette in “Metamorphosis,” the Kelvans in “By Any Other Name“—are few and far between. The Enterprise spends way too much time defeating enemies and not enough time seeking out new life and new civilizations.
