Tbh I generally have trouble telling which men are particularly handsome.
I find The Animated Series to be pretty likable, and I give them credit for taking the opportunity to make more alien looking aliens, but Yesteryear is the only one I'd put on a list of "Great Star Trek Episodes."
I do remember watching it when I was 4 or 5 years old, so it was my first Star Trek. But I wouldn't become a fan until about 7 years later, when I got into TNG and the TOS movies series. TOS wasn't on any TV stations that I got at the time, so I didn't see many episodes of it until about 10 years later.
