Are you sure you’re not a closet trekkie, Nikki? :)
That was just sad – Nimoy has achieved a lot over the years, on stage and in audio-only performances as well as TV and movies, but he should have remained in retirement from performance. He seems to have a speech impediment that wasn’t there when I heard him last. Equally sad was his apparent inability to distinguish good material from dreck, or else he might have resisted being given such a mediocre top-10 list to read. Gives me second thoughts about his endorsement (starting months ago) of the new Star Trek movie he appears in. At least I can now finally get A Woman Called Golda on DVD.
Why did they only show part of it? I wanted to see the whole thing, damn it
I think “gottacook” is actually William Shatner.
Gottacook, I saw STAR TREK last night and not only was it terrific, Nimoy was great in it.
The man is pushing 80, give him a break.
Better yet, why don’t you retire…from making idiotic, ageist comments.
That was amazing! I thought Leonard did great… The full list last night was terrific too.

If so, follow your own advice, Shat.
GET A LIFE!!!!
Nimoy was great, and the top 10 list was fine.
The point isn’t that the lines have to be the funniest lines of all time. The point is that it’s great to see Nimoy being sort of himself without having to say the same movie PR spiel he’s probably said 2,000 times already.
To paraphrase Nimoy: “I Am Not Shatner.” I am (as I thought I’d indicated) a longtime admirer of Nimoy, wish I’d seen him on stage as Tevye, and I really do want to pick up the Woman Called Golda DVD that came out last month. I simply think (i) he was wise to retire from performance and concentrate on his photography, and (ii) he may have been unwise to have yielded to temptation and unretire for this movie and its promotion. Why is saying so ageist?
