Star Trek The Original Series Rewatch: "The Paradise Syndrome"
Kirk shouts "MIRAMANEE!" and "I AM KIROK!" a lot. Plus racist Native stereotyping, atrocious acting, doofy-ass voiceovers, and plot holes you could fly the Enterprise through. The TOS Rewatch suffers from "The Paradise Syndrome."

An excerpt:
The bad one is that lost in all the hugger-mugger of racist stereotyping and bad acting (not just Shatner’s doofy-ass voiceovers and screaming “I AM KIROK!!!!” but also the embarrassingly bad performance of Rudy Solari, who keeps looking at indeterminate spots over the shoulder of the person he’s talking to and who is a two-bag actor—he needs the second bag in case he accidentally acts his way out of the first) is the fact that the script is actually dumber than a box of hammers.
