We need to see more of those.
Shatner as Kirk is why I watched TOS. He could be facing death and still looked like he was having fun. But I was also a teenager then. I'm 47 now. And, in the words of the late George Harrison, all things must pass.
I also watched TNG and DS9 with equal enthusiasism to TOS. And they were Shatnerless ("Trials and Tribblelations" notwithstanding).
I'm gonna cut myself a bunch of slack (not saying I'll need it, but just in case) and enjoy the hell out of Pine's Kirk.
I haven't been this excited about Trek -- with or without Shatner -- since the production of TMP was announced.
