Why do I picture this as Shatner being the proverbial old man ranting about "how it was done in his day"

Shatner mentioned this documentary last month when on stage with Stewart in Montreal. Incidentally, if you've seen him on stage at a convention, ranting on about stuff is about all he does, albeit not angrily.

Also - a Xena documentary? What relation could he possibly have to that franchise?

Clearly Xena and Gabrielle were an item only because Xena didn't have a man like Kirk in her life.

I'm all for more TNG documentaries, but somehow I have a feeling this is going to end up being more about him. Just like in his Captains doc.

Shatner has a nice, easily recognizable, speaking voice. He has done documentaries not connected to Star Trek.

This sounds like a train wreck. The only thing The Shat knows about TNG is that he wasn't in it. And that still pisses him off.

I don't agree, but if that were true, then it would be even more of a reason to watch it!

Re: Shatner: The Next Generation Documentary

Bill Shatner admitted in the "The Captain's Summit" that he never watched a single episode of TNG. I firmly believe that for this reason alone, he should refrain from producing a TNG documentary.

I have nothing against Mr. Shatner, quite the contrary, but this is just misguided.

Perhaps, for this project, he finally will?
