Statistics Saturday: Episodes Where Captain Kirk Gets His Shirt Torn Or Taken Off, By Season


5 torn shirts the first season, 2 in the second, none in the third or the movies. 4 shirtless moments in the first season, 5 in the second, 4 in the third, and none in the movies either.
You can positively see the budget getting tighter!
First season totals include the pilot episode when they could throw some more money around.

There is a third-season episode where Kirk’s pants get torn. It’s the one where rock monster aliens pretend to be Abraham Lincoln so they can learn a little something about humanity. The pants-tearing probably wasn’t on purpose.

  1. It was likely just a coincidence that The Rutles’ producer Leggy Montbottom was showing the Liverpool lads around Desilu/Paramount the week the Lincoln/rock monster/trouser tearing episode was being filmed.

    1. I hope it was just coincidence. Still think we lost a little something in the draft that took the song away from “All You Need Is Pants”, although there’s probably some subject/verb number discrepancy between American and British English on this point.
