McDowell wasn't part of the Next Gen cast and honestly, he out acted both Stewart and Shatner in the film.
It doesn't matter, when the initial thingy was about the film.
And I agree.
I thought you were talking about the cast of The Next Generation
. My mistake.
Shatner as an actor, goes in whole hog in everything he does. He acts with a zest that is missing from most actors today. For me, that zest is what makes Jim Kirk such a great character.
And without Shatner and Nimoy, there is no Captain Picard for us to compare and contrast with.
