Awesome!

Interesting, too, how they all had a good handle on elements of the show and the ship as if they felt it really mattered.

Re: Marvelous old interview

Managed to download all five parts, edit them back together, and put it on DVD. Even with the loss of resolution, it makes for good viewing.

And in light of the latest movie, Koenig and Ellison sound like freakin' prophets.

That Star Trek interview from 1976 is a classic!! There used to be a really sharp copy on youtube at one time, it appears to be gone now.

Part 3 is remarkable. Koenig describes how a Trek movie would fundamentally change what Trek was all about if it's just explosions and big monsters, and Kelley talks about how a Trek movie should be the crew encountering God in space but he actually turns out to be Lucifer!

Re: Marvelous old interview

This has a few good bits from Jimmy Doohan:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcIwA...eature=related

it's a puff piece, but he talks frankly about his war injury, the famous suicidal girl story and a few other things. It's after his stroke so he speaks very slowly, but he seems fine otherwise.

Re: Marvelous old interview

I just finished watching the entire Tom Snyder interview. I was really enjoying it until the last part. Harlan Ellison. The man has had a long and prosperous career of whining about the changes they made (and from what I've read they were good and necessary) to his one script. What's the point of having him there to trash the show to its stars? There's legitimate contrary opinion, and there's pretentious, pompous, elitist whining.

Both of those, and Doohan predicting sequels in one of the earlier parts, made me raise an eyebrow.

Great interview.

It's funny watching Harlan drive them to distraction with mild criticisms of the show.

Good stuff. I like the talk of "ghosts". And interesting to see everyone smoking.

Re: Marvelous old interview

Haven't seen the YouTube vids. I have it on VHS somewhere (along with Rocketman and a few other TOS gems). Is this the interview show where Harlan sounds like a parrot at one point: "It's a cop show, a cop show." And Doohan seems threatening: "It was more than that."

Re: Marvelous old interview

What kills me about this, besides everyone smoking, is the '70s style hair and glasses. Of course we thought nothing of it then, but it looks more dated than the '60s.

Re: Marvelous old interview

They don't make them like this anymore. A chat show where people had, and presented opinions, and went on to debate in intelligent and thoughtful discourse. Including the host...

Now all we get are soundbites and plugs. Some might say that televised Trek dumbed down as the years went by with endless sequels and spinoffs, but that's nothing compared to how dumbed down the chat show format has become.

Awesome interview. Very candid and thoughtful. I think that it would have been a good extra to have incorporated into one of the DVD season box sets. It was great to see how proud Doohan was of the show and how well he stood up to Ellison when Harlan made the asinine assertion that Star Trek was nothing but a cop show.
