Star Trek Shmar Shmrek

So I recently made fun of a friend for being a Vampire Captain Kirk for Halloween. Sorry Jon. I've never really liked Star Trek and I often look down on those that do. But recently I had an epiphany. I was trying to get someone we'll call Shmoe to eat something he had never tried before. I was so frustrated because I knew he would like it if he just gave it a chance but because of the way it looked there was no way it was going to happen. That's when I realised that I had never seen a single Star Trek movie or perhaps even an entire episode. So here goes. I have placed in my Blockbuster Online Que all three original seasons (there were only 3?) all the movies and all of the Next Generation. I hope to watch them all in chronological order. Either this will open up a new world to me or at the very least I will be able to say with confidence why I can't stand this stuff. Wish me luck.
I do have a question for Jon. Should I watch Next Generation season 3 before or after The Final Frontier? For that matter any time there is a movie same year as a season of the show should I go with movie first or season?
To those of you who are ashamed of me, I understand.

I have always liked Star Trek.
Kirk is pretty much the tuffest/coolest guy that has ever existed. If that is even possible.

I will hold off on wishing you luck for now though. If you haven't discovered Kirk's awesomeness at this point in your life, it may be too late.

I agree with your friend somewhat JR, don't watch them in the "chronological" order. And whatever you do, just ignore the whole Klingon No Ridged/Ridged thing, it will save you migraines.

I think you can skip the animated series, although it is great. And you can't watch Star Trek: Generations before you've finished the ALL of TNG Seasons or none of the humor will make sense. After that you can watch DS9 and Voyager and the rest of movies altogether.

You can skip Enterprise, it started off okay and then the wheels totally came off the wagon and it sailed right off the cliff into WTF Land.
