Bort Shatner can do what he wants and he gets my stars, no questions asked.
Some day Shatty the Shatner-Sprite will see people one-starring Shatner videos, and take him away from us. But that day won't be today if I can help it.
Hooker I always find it kinda irritating when Shatner parodies Shatner. When he parodies himself, he never seems to understand why the thing he's parodying was so ridiculous, which makes me believe the guy that sincerely made that awful spoken word album is still in there and he's just whoring for attention.
Hooker I should point out that a major part of this feeling is that he still does incredibly pretentious shit _all the time_. He recently did some documentary where he talks with all the other actors that play Star Trek captains and it's just agonizingly self-important. So I find it hard to believe his need to be respected artistically is gone but that his need for attention is stronger.
