Star Trek Tuesdays?

Regretfully, I've been a lifelong nerd that has never watched any Star Trek but I'd like to start. So I am proposing watching Star Trek The Original Series (available on Netflix) in episode order starting from the first one, with new posts going up on Tuesdays. Given it's 40 years old, I don't think spoilers or first watch/rewatch labels are necessary, but I would like to dive into the originals before someday moving on to the other series. Who's with me?
