First I was going to commend Tom and Roseanne Arnold for their HILL STREET BLUES roles as Frank Furillo and Joyce Davenport.......then I remembered the weekly excellence of Tony Danza's Michael Corleone. So it's GODFATHER: THE SERIES without a doubt. Shatner as Vito, almost as good.

That's more like a prequel to Idiocracy.

Re: Alternate history tv shows

I've always thought Erik Nelson as April was the best captain it really too bad that he was replace with Jeff hunter for the second pilot, its also too bad Roddenberry was sleeping with Nichelle Nichols I think her Commander Colt was quite interested

As an aside, I think there are just too many stupid people nowadays who wouldn't be able to recognize an alternate history series as alternate history. Sort of like my then 40-year-old nephew who thought Oliver Stone's JFK was truth.
Odd in my world director Jack Kennedy made a film about President Oliver Stone.
His sacking of Hanoi is studied by all military cadets
Did Jack Kennedy direct any movies in which his wife Marilyn Monroe starred in?

Could've been worse. Remember, at one point they wanted to cast Batman (William Shatner) as the captain. Imagine that, a Canadian captain!

Even crazier is that I heard that Spock(Adam West) was the second choice for Batman can you imaging anyone else in that role and his such a dramatic Batman would never of had that great camp feel.

No, he never had the chance. But he was executive producer on Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, the only role she ever got an Oscar nomination for.

It's probably a shame Kennedy didn't have more hands-on involvement with his wife Marilyn's career. He might have been able to control some of her erratic behavior (mood swings, constant lateness, etc.) that eventually soured her relationship with the big studios. Once Jayne Mansfield became Hollywood's go-to blonde bombshell, Monroe's movie career was essentially over. Her one chance at a small-screen comeback, as the star of the TV series Honey West was sabotaged by her obvious (and frequently publicly displayed) disgust at being reduced to being a "television actor."

I'm having trouble envisioning Shatner's dramatically paused delivery for any character not wearing Bat-ears. "You'll never. Get away with this. Joker!" Can you see that working on a dramatic space show?

No wonder Shatner was typecast as Batman.

I loved Mariska Hargitay's performance as T'Pol.

Re: Alternate history tv shows

Whoever had the idea to set Sherlock Holmes in the Victorian era was brilliant! After having been a fan for so long, I have to admit, I was a little skeptical that they could adapt the character and setting to that of a period piece, but they nailed it! Holmes without a smartphone? I shuddered at the thought! The Case of the Blue Argyle was absolutely brilliant, and I'd be surprised if it doesn't bring home an oscar.

Why did they get a Brit to play such an iconic American character?

^Christian Bale does a pretty convincing American accent, in fairness. Ditto Henry Cavill as Watson.
