Kirk And Spock Are Still At It.

I was a huge fan of the original Star Trek and a huge fan of William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and DeForest Kelley, the latter of course being unfortunately no longer with us.

Shatner and Nimoy however have rekindled their on screen ‘romance’ is a series of adverts for American Company Priceline which we don’t get to see in the UK.  I’ve always though Shatner was a great comedic actor, his turn in Boston Legal of which I’ve just watched the last series was fantastic and these adverts are hilarious.

It seems Shatner has a pretty good business head as well, originally hired in 1997 by Priceline he agreed to take part payment for his services in shares.  Dipping below $2.00 during the Dotcom boom the shares have now risen to around $300 each making Shatner’s holding reportedly worth around $600 million.

Presumably this has softened the blow of Nimoy muscling in on his new found wealth and popularity.

Twin Peaks DVD

Joy of joys, I am finally in possession of the entire run of Twin Peaks on DVD, an appointment has been made with some damn good coffee, jelly doughnuts and Agent Dale Cooper.  I originally recorded this entire series on video cassette and even edited every episode down to one 4 hour walk through of all the parts most relevant to the murder of Laura Palmer.  Unfortunately whilst stored in rather damp conditions a mold grew all over the cassettes and I had to throw them away.

Nearly 20 years later I can finally enjoy the whole, groundbreaking series again.

Jelly doughnuts? Harry, that goes without saying.
