You put funny people in funny costumes and paint them green and we could talk about anything we wanted to, because that was the only thing that fascinated Gene about this particular genre. Censorship was so bad in those days, you couldn’t talk about war, black-white situation, you couldn’t even talk about mother love.
We took Frank Grosh and painted him half-black and half-white and his adversary was half-white and half-black and put the two of them at each other and it got through the censors. They never realised that that was what was going on. Once it’s up on the screen it’s too late and Gene got to talk about some of the problems that we had today that way.
You go through at least the first two years of Star Trek and you find some amazing stuff. Everything that was going on Gene put into the series. He just put strange costumes on the actors and painted them funny colours and left the same situation in."

Hey the thing I reblogged earlier reminded me to mention this:
I can promise all my followers that I do not post or reblog jump scares, ever, because A) I don’t like them and they suck, and B) I know at least a few of my followers have anxiety in one form or another and I’m not going to be that jerk.
So yes. There will be no jump scares from this blog, just wanted to ease your minds preemptively.
and if I ever DO post any, due to my not watching a video or gif all the way through before hitting reblog, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me know (once you recover from your attack) so I can immediately delete.
Jump scares SUCK
