So... you're into older guys - The Deadly Years

The Original Series second season episode, The Deadly Years is not a classic for the WPD team. It’s a collection of established TOS tropes holding together an interesting story premise of the senior crew of the of the USS Enterprise trying to cure themselves of a radiation sickness that results in rapid aging.

But the episode tells us alot about contemporaneuos attitudes to old age and lets us peer into a parallel universe where the show speculates what happens to Kirks’ hair and gets it horribly wrong.
