The 70's (until the very end in 1979) were very lean years for Shatner's acting career so he did quite a few commercials.

I remember watching that Twilight Zone episode but I didn't recall it being the Shat. I guess it was pre-Trek days.


A guy walks into a bar and hears two women speaking in a British accent. He asks, "Are you ladies from England?" One says to him "No, it's Wales, you idiot!" So, then the guy says, "Okay, sorry. So, are you two whales from England?"

Correct. That episode originally aired in 1963 so three years before ST: TOS.

He was in at least one other episode of the Twilight Zone, maybe more.

And he was the highlight in Airplane 2

You've got that right. Without him Airplane 2 would have been a totally forgettable sequel.

I enjoyed him in Sole Survivor, an old (TV?) movie where he played not the main character, but a rather dislikeable secondary character.

I've never seen Airplane 2. Looking at the comments, that 7 minutes with Shatner was the best of the movie. That opening gag with the door was just lol.

Yep. He also did an episode of Ray Bradbury theater in 1985 titled "The Playground" and it is pretty bizarre.

Actually, IMHO, it a rare example of a sequel to a movie being pretty good. I highly suggest checking out.

Heh, who knows? It might have been this performance which caught the attention of Gene Roddenberry. smile

Not much of a Shatner fan myself, but I'm a massive Columbo fan. And Shatner's character in one of his appearances (Butterfly in Shades of Grey) had in mind to shoot Columbo. No one shoots Columbo! Thankfully his plan was foiled, as Columbo considers all.

Shatner appeared in at least two episodes that I can recall offhand. One in the late 70's and this one in the mid-90s.

Yeah it was a reboot of sorts. It ran (again) from 1989 to 2003 with prominent actors of the period like Andrew Stevens, Dabney Coleman and Norm from Cheers. These run every Saturday night on Cozi TV. Leads in to the Six Million Dollar Man smile

+1!

Big Columbo fan here as well...been watching them forever. I liked Shatner's character in the 70's version episode as a TV sleuth matching wits with Columbo...good stuff!

Leonard Nimoy also had a good character in an early Columbo episode as a surgeon.

Nahh...nothing beats Shatner Sings!




Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.
This is known as "bad luck.”

We love Colombo around here too. My Dad also loves Perry Mason and I enjoy it too. That Colombo with Leonard Nimoy I think is the only time I ever saw Colombo show his anger towards a suspect he knew was guilty. There's a scene where Nimoy is being particularly arrogant and Colombo proceeds to grab a pencil holder I think and slam it into his desk while staring him in the eye. It was quite wonderful actually lol. It was neat to see the righteous indignation that we know Colombo always has towards criminals who work evil actually be displayed. Its been awhile but I remember that Shatner episode being a good one. One of my favorites is the episode with Johnny Cash.

I really enjoyed Shatner's reprisal and acting as Kirk in Star Trek Generations.

Ah, William Shatner - sometimes maligned, but truly a Renaissance man when it comes to the entertainment industry.

The guy not only managed to perform a role in a movie using a made up language, he was lead on two TV shows, he's been a director, screen writer, and producer. Plus he is a successful science fiction writer.

Even his musical career is notable. Granted, his earlier work could be considered rather experimental, but it's still entertaining. His later work is actually very good.

Indeed, at work before we moved locations, Friday was William Shatner Day, where Alexa would have him voicing Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds as we repaired aircraft. Deadpanning "Oh no, no, no, no" will still get an earnest and emphatic response of "I'm...a...rocket...man" in the shop, regardless of what is happening.

I think he's seriously under appreciated for his career.

I know the episode you're referring to with Nimoy, "A Stitch in Crime". Columbo never lost his cool so yeah that stood out. Dissolving sutures were the key to the crime.

Columbo was a neat twist, not a whodunnit, but what came to be called 'howcatchem'. The audience knows right from the start who did it.

Oh, just one more thing ma'am...

In the pilot "Prescription Murder" he lays into the murderer's girlfriend accomplice pretty hard trying to get her to crack...probably more so than the Nimoy episode. Pfffftt...rookies! JK!

Agree with everything else...including Johnny Cash being one of my faves. Cash had some pretty reasonable answers to Columbo's questions I thought.

That was a great episode, and before Columbo became so frumpled. He was quite sharp in that one. There were actually two pilots I think. Prescription Murder was in the 60s and another pilot was done in the early 70s, which led to the series.

Swan Song is the name of the Cash episode. He was pretty good in that one.

I tried to narrow it all down to my favorite episode and found that's really hard to do. Maybe Etude in Black, which was directed by Nick Colasanto, Coach from Cheers. Or Any Port in a Storm. Bah, I could go on, it's too hard to pick one.

But I'm glad to see there are other fans of this great series. I watch it every week even though I've seen all episodes a bunch of times.

There was a short-lived British series called Indian Detective where Shatner was the head of a crime syndicate. He did pretty well playing that part. It was a great series, but they cancelled it after only two or three seasons.

I looked it up and it's actually a Canadian tv series. Shatner being Canadian himself I'm not surprised that he was on that series!

Captain Kirk was definitely one of the best characters. I totally appreciate William Shatner in this epic role. he really made the alchemy of the Star Trek l TV serieswork. portraying the noble Captain.

The show, the TV series were, as 'hokey' and low-tech sets and fake costumes could be.. ol.. one of the most important and influential series of lessons and food for thought one could find anyway.
Too bad most people just can't 'dig it'. Its over there heads. they rave about Star Trek and wear costumes go to Treky conventions but IMHO 99% missed the lessons entirely. Most people just want eye-candy and social

I mean even today practically the whole world is confused asking, 'Is there life on other planets anywhere?'.Well of course there is and the whole presentation of the original plot from the show by Gene Roddenberry actually starts out with this hand written pitch presented by Roddenbury.
It starts with the reference to the (non-fictional) mathematical theorem (at the time) estimating the numbers of stars and planets and the equation that proves theoretically that there are tons of planet like earth in the universe that can support life.
(I actually saw the manuscript offered for sale on a TV pawn show awhile ago.)
This is sort of just a background to the pitch.
Of course Star Trek goes way beyond that and entertains that the planet and life-forms do not necessarily have to be based from an earth-like planet and chemistry, but some lifeforms can exists as simple 'energy'.

Then also I could rave on about the other main character Spock. The Vulcan / half Human. And the planet Vulcan and there logic based civilization and the lessons thereoff. Again most of which is missed by the mass of humanoids of this planet.

Yes I was influenced a ton by William Shatner and I'm grateful for him and there is no way I could disregard him. I had shaken his hand like I did James Earl Jones another man of stellar character and immense learning and skills.
Yep The man was as genuine as they come and truly he was the noble 'renaissance man'.
Captain 'Jim" Kirk. The american ideal of yankee ingenuity taking on and solving (with Spock and the crew's help of course) the problems of space in a somewhat crowded universe.. and an even more crowded tiny low budget set.

Supposedly it was 'Gunsmoke' in space according to Leonard Nimoy. But that was far from what the lessons of the show has hidden in between the script lines.


Conception and setting

The Starfleet emblem as seen in the franchise
As early as 1964, Gene Roddenberry drafted a proposal for the science fiction series that would become Star Trek. Although he publicly marketed it as a Western in outer space—a so-called "Wagon Train to the Stars"—he privately told friends that he was modeling it on Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels, intending each episode to act on two levels: as a suspenseful adventure story and as a morality tale.[10][11][12][13]

Most Star Trek stories depict the adventures of humans and aliens who serve in Starfleet, the space-borne humanitarian and peacekeeping armada of the United Federation of Planets. The protagonists have altruistic values, and must apply these ideals to difficult dilemmas.

Many of the conflicts and political dimensions of Star Trek are allegories of contemporary cultural realities. The Original Series addressed issues of the 1960s, just as later spin-offs have tackled issues of their respective decades.[14] Issues depicted in the various series include war and peace, the value of personal loyalty, authoritarianism, imperialism, class warfare, economics, racism, religion, human rights, sexism, feminism, and the role of technology.[15]: 57  Roddenberry stated: "[By creating] a new world with new rules, I could make statements about sex, religion, Vietnam, politics, and intercontinental missiles. Indeed, we did make them on Star Trek: we were sending messages and fortunately they all got by the network."[15]: 79  "If you talked about purple people on a far off planet, they (the television network) never really caught on. They were more concerned about cleavage. They actually would send a censor down to the set to measure a woman's cleavage to make sure too much of her breast wasn't showing"[16]

Roddenberry intended the show to have a progressive political agenda reflective of the emerging counter-culture of the youth movement, though he was not fully forthcoming to the networks about this. He wanted Star Trek to show what humanity might develop into, if it would learn from the lessons of the past, most specifically by ending violence. An extreme example is the alien species known as the Vulcans, who had a violent past but learned to control their emotions. Roddenberry also gave Star Trek an anti-war message and depicted the United Federation of Planets as an ideal, optimistic version of the United Nations.[17] His efforts were opposed by the network because of concerns over marketability, e.g., they opposed Roddenberry's insistence that Enterprise have a racially diverse crew.[18]


Yes it was quite a lot too handle for the masses. But then again this was the 1960's. Although really I watched the show more from daily reruns in the 1970's when I was a teen. Some like I, could make the quantum leaps while most remained, sadly, Earth-bound and clinging to their dogmas.

Yes its too bad so many missed the purports of the most important era mainly the 1960's. Even more too bad we have to tolerate the same issues and people that refuse to educate themselves from history and logic and thus remain so Earth-bound and stuck in their pre-1960's Vortex

Good commercials. Movie wasn't.





Show too much!

I think the whale lady was cute



\Shatner directing is why this FAI?



Best commercial of a Star Trek movie

Shatner must had demanded another Kirk paycheck.

The period between the cancellation of ST: TOS and the filming of ST: TMP were VERY lean years for Shatner so he took whatever work he could get.

I thought Shatner was great in "Judgment at Nuremberg".

The only time I can remember Shatner playing a negative character is the movie "Sole Survivor" (1970). Good movie (a TV movie I think).

Oh, aside from the various TV cop dramas of course, Columbo etc.

It would be very odd indeed for me to see Shatner playing a villain/antagonist. I remember how awkward it was for me to see Harrison Ford playing a villain in "What Lies Beneath". As far as I know that's the only time he played a villian in a movie.

Shatner will be turning 92 this year and he’s not shown any indication of slowing down. The guy definitely lucked out with genetics.

Not sure why these came up in my recommended list but here we are.

This rather catchy tune from Leonard Nimoy...


And of course something over the top from the Great Shat himself...


A guy walks into a bar and hears two women speaking in a British accent. He asks, "Are you ladies from England?" One says to him "No, it's Wales, you idiot!" So, then the guy says, "Okay, sorry. So, are you two whales from England?"

There were numerous closing scenes in the Original series that were humorous, usually with some dialog between Kirk, Spock and McCoy.

There was also some unintentional comedy like his acting performance in "Turnabout Intruder".

Shatner in an interview states the obvious for a 90+ year old human, that he won't live forever, and numerous stories pop up proclaiming "Shatner Dying!" hyperbolic headlines

When he passes, his ashes should be taken to the new NASA moon outpost https://www.nasa.gov/specials/artemis/ or on the space station. The first spacecraft carrying hoomans to Mars oughta be named the U.S.S. James T. Kirk.

The 1990's trash talk shows like Jerry Springer eventually evolved into today's click-bait internet fluff articles.

A far cry from James Woods who totally blew away his competitors when he was on Celebrity Jepoardy back in the mid 90's.

Yes, thanks for the reminder. There's that season 1 TOS episode where Kirk finds his dead brother at some colony that was overrun by some flying parasites.

Now I know!!



That Reliant is a tough little ship

Which is why, at least to me, with the number of cameos he did plus those series it seemed like Shatner was ALWAYS on TV.

A friend of mine saw Shatner at his Wrath of Khan viewing/Q&A tour and he had a great time. He said Bill has an incredible amount of energy and memory recall for someone his age.

I've never had any inclination to go to a "comic-con" but Shatner is going to be at one, for the first time ever, about 15 miles from me in a couple of months. So I considered it, the man is an icon after all. Then I looked at the cost of getting in, getting to meet him etc. All told north of $100. Sorry, no. Would have been cool to shake Captain Kirk's hand though.

That's a bit steep. Although, probably average. I'm a cheapskate for things like that.

I did get to see him at a Star Trek convention in the mid 90s. He had tons of energy back then and had some fun stories from back in the day.

Keep in mind that most live events like concerts, conventions and such are still trying to recoup the revenue lost from the COVID lockdowns. That is a significant factor behind the price hikes.

Happy Birthday. He is 93 today

His secret to long life https://www.today.com/health/men-s-health/william-shatner-health-rcna144431

He can do another 5 year mission boldly going where no 93 years old has gone before
