[TOS] Amok Time

[TOS] Season 2, Episode 1 (Netflix: S2 E1): Amok Time

Kirk and Spock fight to the death

Rating: 4

They introduce the concept of Pon Farr, which isn’t exactly our favorite part of Vulcans, although it’s best portrayed in this episode. They also establish that Vulcans are both logical, but also sort of religious, which is an interesting part of Vulcans. This episode showcases the deep friendship between Kirk, Spock and Bones.
