jazzville skyline: “…beam him up…”

Let me start off by saying…I like William Shatner…

Of course, I grew up with the original ‘Star Trek’, and I love ‘Boston Legal’, so I can appreciate his style of acting, his quirks, his ego…yes, even his ego…

And sometimes, true, it can get in the way, like it peripherally did on the interview documentary “Mind Meld” that he did with long time friend Leonard Nimoy…but it was Bill just being Bill…

And, if you can appreciate that, you will certainly appreciate his latest foray into the world of documentary filmmaking…

It’s called “The Captains”, and the readout is so promising…Bill visits with the other ‘Captains’ from the ‘Star Trek’ franchise, including Patrick Stewart, Kate Mulgrew, Avery Brooks, Scott Bakula, and the new guy, Chris Pine, who has now taken over the role that once made Shatner so famous, ‘Capt. James T. Kirk’…

And Bill travels all over the globe to interview each one individually… and does a fine job…kinda…

Somewhere within each interview, the topic always seems to end up focusing on Shatner himself, and how something the other actor did pertains to something in his own life…

Ya’ gotta love it…and, if you do, you will love this documentary, especially his time with Avery Brooks, ‘Capt. Benjamin Sisko’ from ‘Deep Space Nine’…Truly worth the price of admission for any Shatner fan…

In all sincerity, it is nice to see all these guys get together and discuss something they all have in common, especially his time with Bakula, who he clearly seems to have the most fun with…

So…if you ever wanted to have some harmless fun with a few who have sat in the Captain’s chair, you won’t want to miss this entry into the ever expanding ‘Star Trek’ universe…
