As a Kid I Watched Star Trek on WPIX…Channel 11
Back in my younger days in New Jersey, there was one TV station that held a special place in my heart - WPIX. That channel was my go-to for a bunch of awesome shows and movies that still bring back fond memories. One show that stood out the most, and I'm sure many of you can relate, was the original Star Trek.
I can't even count how many times I broke the house rules just to stay up late and catch the adventures of Captain Kirk and Spock on WPIX. Even during my exhausting late shifts at the video store, I knew I had a reward waiting for me when I got home - Star Trek on WPIX!
Speaking of WPIX, let me take you back to a nostalgic moment. It was back in 1993, during a commercial break for Deep Space Nine, when they aired a promo for "The Menagerie." Oh, the excitement I felt! I probably recorded it on my trusty VCR or tried my best to catch it live, so I wouldn't miss a single second of the action.
I'm curious, did you have a local TV station like WPIX in your area? You know, that one channel that you always turned to for the best shows and movies. If so, what was it called, and which show did you absolutely love watching on that channel? Let's reminisce about the good old days of TV and the shows that brought us so much joy!
