HASH(0x958b18a0) out of 5 stars Extraordinary... 7 Jun. 2001
By Hank Drake - Published on Amazon.com
The two episodes in Volume 24 of Paramount's complete reissue of Classic Trek are outstanding examples of television writing at its best.
Obsession owes its success to the Moby Dick formula, although in this case Captain Kirk is motivated by concern for the Federation, not vengeance. Essentially a character study, this episode reveals how hard Kirk drives himself, and how unremittingly self-critical he is. In Ensign Garrovick (Stephen Brooks), Kirk sees a younger version of himself, and when he disciplines Garrovick, he is in essence punishing his younger self. We also see hints of the unshakable foundation upon which Spock & McCoy's often bickersome friendship is based.
Watching The Immunity Syndrome for the first time in many years, I was struck how well the episode holds up, not only scientifically, but also in the visual effects department. Dr. McCoy's use of DNA and other terminology was written thirty years ahead of its time, and the swirling colors of the giant Amoeba are all the more impressive for being created well before the advent of CGI. This tightly plotted, and skillfully executed episode is the perfect answer for those who condemn Classic Trek for being "boring" or looking "cheesy."
Both episodes on this DVD make excellent use of Sol Kaplan's score for The Doomsday Machine (Volume 18), which is appropriate, given the similarity in plot structure. The picture is vastly improved over previous issues, which clearly enhances the visuals in The Immunity Syndrome. The sound has been tastefully enhanced for multi-channel systems.

HASH(0x956e1f84) out of 5 stars Perfect examples of Original Series at its best 5 Aug. 2001
By Rottenberg's rotten book review - Published on Amazon.com
This disc has two great episodes of the original series:
In "Obsession" Kirk pursues a mysterious, if clearly deadly life-form - a cloudlike being that sucks the life out of men. As Ahab encountered "Moby Dick", Kirk has had a fatefeul run-in with the cloud-beast, years earlier. Men died and Kirk was too slow to pull out his phaser and despatch the beast. Unsure whether the mysterious beast would have even succumbed to phaser fire, Kirk is left only with his doubts, guilts and an obsession - something he had practically forgotten....until the good captain re-econcounters the evil cloud.
"Obsession" excels because the guilt and fear are convincingly etched on Kirk's face, but also for another reason hard to forget: the beast has its own scent, something like honey, and its effect on Kirk surpasses the cheesy effects of the show.
"Immunity Syndrome" is also an excellent epsiode - the Enterprise seeks the story behind the mysterious dissappearqance of a Vulcan starship, and discovers a huge space-born amoeba. The life form surrounds itself with a dark zone that nothing can escape from. Rather than make the nature of the creature and the ship's predicament (once the Enterprise enters the zone, it's trapped) immeidately obvious, the story builds gradually. Once inside, the beast sucks the ship and its crew of their energy - rapidly diminishing the crew's ability to deal with the problem. I remember this episode especially for the desperation clearly etched on the crew - when Kirk decides that somebody has to fly a shuttlecraft into the mysterious creature, You just knew that it was a one-way trip. The episode culminates in excellent exchange with Spock - calling out from his dying shuttle - for the Enterprise to leave him behind and save itself. "Dammit, Spock" McCoy shouts over the speaker "We're trying to save you!" Spock responds, registering perhaps the most surprise he's ever displayed - "why thank you....Captain McCoy." A True TOS moment and one more reason to get this video.

HASH(0x960d5d2c) out of 5 stars Immunity Syndrome: Best Episode? 12 Dec. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
"Obsession" is a great episode (particularly for those interested in the origins of the Matt Decker character in the first movie). However, for my money, "T.I.S." is among the very best episodes in the original series. Why? One of the most compelling sci-fi statements of all time coming from the mouth of Dr. McCoy: that humans are mere anitbodies in the organism that is our galaxy.

HASH(0x955b91ec) out of 5 stars One of the best Star Trek episodes 10 Jun. 2013

This DVD came shrink wrapped and was delivered within a matter of few days. The episodes, Obsession and The Immunity Syndrome are two of the best second season Star Trek episodes there are. They are two episodes that are devoid of any senseless humor and are acted with no-nonsense scripts. I would recommend these two episodes to any
sincere fan of the original Star Trek television show.

HASH(0x956e4d38) out of 5 stars STAR TREK~THE BEST EPISODES 14 Aug. 2012
By Prince Everlove - Published on Amazon.com

STAR TREK(ORIGINAL CLASSIC)HAS BECOME A LEGEND IN T.V. FOR ITS APPROACH TO SCI~FI,ESPECIALLY THE FIRST 2 SEASONS. OBSESSION AND IMMUNITY SYNDROME ARE GOOD EXAMPLES OF FINE WRITING AND GREAT VISUAL STORYTELLING. IN THE FIRST, CAPTAIN KIRK IS TORMENTED OVER A MISTAKE HE THOUGHT HE MADE IN NOT KILLING THIS VAPOROUS VAMPIRE EARLY ENOUGH AT ONE TIME...AND IT RETURNS! THEN IN IMMUNITY SYNDROME, A SPACE AMOEBA THREATENS TO DESTROY THE SHIP AND CREW! SOME OF THE BEST OF THE SERIES.
