Star Trek The Original Series Rewatch: "The Way to Eden"

The TOS Rewatch finds "The Way to Eden."

An excerpt:
Kirk, Spock, McCoy, and Chekov beam down to Eden, which has no animal life (beyond the half-dozen space hippies), but is quite beautiful. However, the plant life turns out to be full of acid, even the grass. Spock finds Adam’s body next to a fruit with a bite taken out of it—the fruit is poisonous. Spock also takes the time out to remind us that this guy in a paradise called Eden who just ate a fruit that killed him is named Adam because we really don’t want you to miss the bog-obvious metaphor!!!!!!
