No? Seemed to me that NuKirk's 'character arc' (and I use the term in the loosest possible sense) was essentially a series of strung-together slapstick, pratfalls and outright vaudeville, wrapped in a smarmy, breezy performance that was essentially an extended James Dean parody. Only occasionally was the character played straight. NuKirk was like NuScotty, making up for the extreme self-satire of the latter by the sheer quantity of farce around the former.
