I think Will just really likes chairs. He's never met a chair he wouldn't mount.

Re: "The question is..."

I'm a tall guy (6'3") as I think Frakes is. And notice all those chairs have low backs...probably having to do with prop design. It is actually easier when you are that tall to swing your leg over the back of a chair than it is to pull the chair out, sit down and pull the chair back up. So I bet it actually became pretty natural. When you are watching the clip, some of them are pretty easy to miss because it is effortless for someone that tall.

Puts a whole new spin on the scene in Generations when he says, "I always thought I'd get a crack at this chair someday."

Advice from another Tall guy, just because you can, it doesn't mean that you should.

I think the directors sometimes had troubles framing shots with Riker in them. Jonathan Frakes is actually a pretty big guy, and especially with Patrick Stewart being (comparitively) small, they sometimes had to get creative just to fit him into a shot with another actor.

Riker's characteristic "I thrust my pelvis into Data's face" leaning pose on the Ops console is one by-product of this.
What annoys me is all the time he sits in his Bridge chair with his legs splayed open. It's like he's putting his "assets" on display while pretending he's not wearing any clothing over them.

Newsflash: After seeing Schwarzenegger in the first Terminator movie, I doubt Jonathan Frakes/Will Riker would ever be close to qualifying for preliminaries, never mind actually being in the contest.

Sran, this is for you:

He looks like he's intending to piddle on an invisible fire hydrant.

And the ship either needs taller chairs, or they need to get Riker a horse.

Agreed. Picard should have asked him if he needed to schedule holodeck time to review basic military decorum and posture.

Re: "The question is..."

Which part of my post confuses you? Riker acts like he's always putting his "masculine assets" on display, regardless of how much clothing he's wearing.

Arnold Shwarzenegger's nude scene in the first Terminator movie has forever spoiled me for all other such displays, clothed or not.

I saw it on TV, as well. I guess Canadian TV doesn't censor some things like American TV does...

It's barely anything, Teacake. Arnie gets a bit of a wang-wiggle going on in a single shot as he walks towards the punks at the beginning of the film. I really don't get the point of the comparison, but no mind.

Re: "The question is..."

Oh because I couldn't find it.

This is like when someone told me Scott Bakula was in Playgirl and I hunted that thing down, must hate taken at least 3 minutes of my life, and he has a freaking speedo on.

And Timewalker I would have been watching Australian tv which pretty much shows anything and everything.

"The question is..." why does Riker sit on a chair like he's mounting a horse?

If that's the reason (or should that be "if they're the reasons"?), then keep Stewart wearing pants. I've read his nickname was "Tripod." And was that really him "naked" in the Cardassian torture scene? I recall we saw a very naked hip (so no covering there).

Re: "The question is..."

To me what's really annoying in Voyager is how people (mostly B'elanna) always say "what's that supposed to mean?" when they perceive some kind of insult. Which seems to happen a lot...
