I watch at least 5 episodes a week sometimes all in one day, sometimes one a day.

I did exactly what you did, when I got all of my series updated to DVDs, I watched all of it in a row, I watched nothing else. Then, I had a couple of surgeries on my neck, So I was told that I wouild be off for 4 more months, so I watched them all again, back to back to back. Then the doctor told me last Oct that I could NEVER go back to work, I watched all of them a third time. They don't get old because you have over 700 epis and 10 movies!! Wow!!!!

With me it varies, I can watch an episode at a time, or go through all of TNG in one big run, I can watch a couple of movies in a row or none for a month. Although the new film is a prequel I plan to watch the entire TOS in the run up to it's release so I'm in that TOS frame of mind!

I watch at least three TOS episodes (thank you, CBS.com) a week, and frequently watch the first six movies.

Hi
its great you have the time now to watch star trek. I have a 14 month old daughter and with work and everything else i dont get much time to watch ST as much as id like. Ill probably put TOS episodes on twice a week maybe or a movie. Somethimes though ill put on my favourite moment and just watch that. It might even be a piece of music. For example ill sometimes put on ST5 TFF when they are on route to the God planet and land in the shuttle. i also love TOS bits and pieces - specific moments in films and episoes too and watch those over and over. i have some of the wonderful music to ST and listen to that on my way to work in the car.

ST takes you away from it all. its also funny, offers warmth, excitement , friendship, adventure and there is a sense of belonging/family even. add to that those wonderful characters we have all come to love and your on a winner.

Since I have taken my early retirement due to a neck problem, I have watched Star Trek on a daily basis. Some form of Star Trek, at least one episode or movie. I realize that I have more time on my hands trying to get used to being home all the time, I have used the last year reacquainted with the franchise. Sometimes I feel that I can't get enough!!!! What about you? How much do you watch on a weekly basis and has the new movie coming made you watch more???
I don't know if the schedule is the same everywhere, but here we get an episode at 6 am on TV Land every morning. We have a regular routine of it being on while getting ready for work (except here lately, where some of that time has been spent on Fox News watching election coverage. After tomorrow, I believe we'll be back into the same routine again).

We also watch Voyager sometimes when we can catch it.

I agree with you on the music, it is great! Right now I have 3 of the movie soundtracks in my changer. That music can take you back!!! It is great!

I hadn't even thought of it being on TV! We get Ent every day at 5pm on SciFi, and on Spike, Voyager At 2Pm and 1am. DS9 is on Spike everyday at 2am. TOS is on NBC every Saturday evening at 7pm and it is remastered!!!
