Shatner Week: Se7en

We thought we’d wrap up Shatner Week with as much Shatner as you can cram into 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Back in 1996, someone at the MTV Movie Awards had the stroke of genius to ask Shatner to parody Best Movie award nominee, Se7en. And in true Shatner fashion, he accepted and delivered this [...]

Shatner Week: The Transformed Man

As mentioned in yesterday's post, William Shatner has parodied himself quite a bit and found some success with that in commercials and bit parts in movies going back to 1982 in Airplane II, but I've had mixed feelings about that. I was glad that he could find exposure and work of some kind (especially the [...]

Shatner Week: Has Been

I'm not entirely sure what Shatner was trying to accomplish with The Transformed Man. What may have been an attempt to be truly artistic turned into a largely mocked and campy outcome. The album is Shatner unleashed and I think Shatner is at his best on a leash.Shatner's performances of "Hey Mr. Tambourine Man" and [...]

Shatner Week: T.J. Hooker

Take a hard-bitten crime drama, pepper in some 80s TV action, and then add a whole lot of Shatner. The result is T.J. Hooker. I don’t know if it was Rick Husky or somebody else who came up with the idea to blend those elements, but that person struck the right chord. The show debuted [...]

Shatner Week: Star Trek

Captain James T. Kirk, the role that William Shatner is best known for, would very likely be on the "Nerd Mount Rushmore." (Who else makes it on the "NMR"? That's another post.) In watching Classic Trek, there are three different William Shatner's:1) The overactor. This is the William Shatner that everyone makes fun of. The [...]

Shatner Week: Happy Birthday to William Shatner

Recently, while in a rare social gathering, someone within the group started talking smack about William Shatner. Basically called him over-rated, a bad actor, and general other put-downs. People who say stuff like that just don't get William Shatner.I am by no means saying that I do get him. However, I certainly appreciate him and [...]
