^Disagreement is cool. I just didn't get from it what you did is all. But different people have different tastes. Mr. Mignogna (how do you pronounce that? Is it Italian and the g is silent) was okay and I didn't think he was bad but I noticed he was doing Shatner's hand manurisms and stuff and it just was kinda like an impersonation to me. I didnt like it but it didn't turn me off to where I don't want to watch more. I want to see if he brings himself to the part and not Shatner I guess.
Oh, I think some degree of impersonation is understandable. In this four-minute vignette, half of the four minutes is a shot-for-shot reproduction of the end of "Turnabout Intruder." So reproducing everything very precisely--Shatner's mannerisms included--was probably the very intent of the production.
