Which is a good thing too. I know there are a lot of running jokes made at Shatner's expense but I swear Hunter didn't change his facial expression the entire episode. For some reason he seemed generally pissed off the entire 45 minutes.
I wouldn't say Hunter was a bad
actor, but he did have limited range. He could do "angry" and he could do "brooding." And minor variants thereof.
And remember, the second pilot was completely recast except
for Leonard Nimoy as Spock.
