On the other hand, a non-fan could be forgiven for thinking that Nimoy had felt confined by Spock's usual personality and, when he had a chance to emote freely, he went nuts with it and chewed the scenery.
And really, why not? Emotions are a big part of any actor's toolbelt and so for any actor to play Spock requires an incredible amount of discipline and control to play an unemotional character without boring the audience. The chance to switch techniques and delve back into the different skills he had acquired must have been welcomed by him when the occasion presented itself.
