I saw Chris Pine give a performance that was a touch Shatner-like in Into the Woods.

I was relieved when activists in Chicago DEMOLISHED his plan for a "Lucas Museum" on the waterfront. what a stupid idea. glad there are still some adults in the room. although not in the room. I think they had to file a lawsuit to derail the boondoggle.

For the record: the movies are perfectly fine, as far as mindless entertainment goes. the problem is all the dorks who take them further than that.


I saw Return of the Jedi in 83 at some theater right by the Hancock building in Chicago at 4am. We waited in line and when the movie was over the sun had come up and we had breakfast at some diner.

There's also a new series going on right now, Discovery, that CBS will only let you watch if you pay for their subscription service. I haven't seen any of that. There are also 3 sets of movies. Original cast movies, next generation cast movies, and now there's a reboot of the original characters (new people playing Kirk, Spock, and company.)






Wow...thinking it over...I guess since I didn't know any of this...or pretty much none of it...I guess I just feel kind of stupid now.

Nah. I included pictures because I assumed this stuff all went under the radar. 740 TV episodes and 13 movies not counting the animated series (which most people seem not to even thought it's Shatner, Nimoy, and company). The original series and the Next Generation combined is 35% of the total number of TV episodes, but together they also make up 10 of the 13 movies, and the other 3 are reboots of the original series. Maybe that's why most people aren't as familiar with the rest of it, no movie representation.
