Get A Life!

So I just watched this on Netflix last night and was wondering if anyone else had seen it and what their thoughts about it were?

The one thing I noticed was how everyone kept talking about how they go to conventions all the time and meet all sorts of friendly people and make friends for life, etc. Maybe it is just me but I've never really had that kind of experience. I've been to many a local one and even went to the Las Vegas one in 2005. I'm not saying I never have good times but I just remembered how most people just seem to get along in their own groups and don't really do much talking to too many others. I've maybe chat with a few people here and there while standing in an autograph line nothing more. Now I will say that I'm not the best at conversation starting either but I can talk and talk and talk. What am I doing wrong?

As to the show itself I did like that Shatner didn't go out of his way to find the super-fandom people like they did in Trekkies and then poke a bit of fun at them through editing.

The story of "Captain Dave" was very touching.
