Today! Is. @WilliamShatner ‘s! BIRTHDAY!

He is! Trying to get. ONE MILLION. Followers! This is THE LAST DAY!

OK, I’ll stop now.

Via @MellissaTweets.  I retain a certain fondness for William Shatner, which is largely tied up with my certain fondness for Star Trek: TOS.  Which is to say, I fully recognize that there were large aspects of the entire Star Trek thing that were hokey and silly, but I loved the show as a teenager and I ended up reading a lot of hard science fiction because of it.  So Happy Birthday, William Shatner.

This is still possibly his best performance EVER, though.

  1. TOS was the only worthwhile Star Trek. The rest were PC pablum. TNG turned Klingons in to first class wusses. Losers.

  2. @countrydoc — that’s not really fair. TOS had plenty of clunkers of its own. “Spock’s Brain”, for instance. Or this one: (with bonus Shatnertastic acting)


    The latter series had some good episodes too (although I will grant you, nothing quite plumbed the depths of embarrassing awfulness like the “Janeway and Paris turn into lizards and have babies” one)
