In 1987 it was obvious to me that they cast Riker as a Kirk-esque character, but Frakes just didn't have the same onscreen charisma that Shatner had.
Riker definitely got better after growing the beard, and the writers stopped trying to make him the next Kirk.
I actually thought he got worse.
Agreed.

Kirk-lite was definitely heads and shoulders above Number One Douche.
