Re: Chris Pine: To Shat or Nat? That is the question.

So, does that mean that I made the question too easy? Is it a "slam dunk," in a manner of speaking?
I think it may suggest there isn't a middle ground here.

If you're not satisfied with Chris Pine's Kirk, you probably still wouldn't be satisfied with Shatnerian inflection. You'd probably want a Kirk played by a different actor, or written a different way, or just not at all (because Shatner is irreplacable). Those who can roll with Pine being Kirk however clearly don't feel he needs to cue up the Shat much.
That's a very good point. Perhaps I should have asked the same question I asked about Zachary and Mr. Nimoy--Whether or not the torch had been successfully passed.
