Guys....here's the thing. While it may be absolutely effortlessly easy for you to let go of William Shatner as James T. Kirk, it's just plain difficult for some of us. I wish there was a switch that I could turn off. I really do. But unlike James Bond or Batman/Superman, this character was played by a single actor for over 40 years. Some of us (not me) literally grew up with the character. Seriously! Shatner's Kirk aged. And if you didn't grow up with him, you saw him grow up. When the name Kirk pops up in our head, Bill Shatner's image does as well.
So please, with sugar on top, pardon fucking us! At least the ones like me that are trying.
