OMG! Are they not the most adorable family???!!!?!? The baby is sooo cute!!! Thanks for the link Nile!

(slightly off topic, i saw her recently on tv and she looked quite different than how she looked in Buffy. Is it possible she's had some work done already?)

Re: *Spock/Zachary Quinto Appreciation Zone*

That's Alexis Denisof (Wesley on Buffy and Angel). I'm thinking it's probably an attempt at keeping his dignity by only wearing half a roo. Aly is a bit of a goofball, so it was very likely her idea. You got to love the match made in the Jossverse.

That same page has Harrison dressed as a pea pod towards the bottom, F.Y.I. Now there's a person you wouldn't expect to put on a dorky Halloween costume.

ZQ's costume reminds me a lot of the skeleton singer from Hocus Pocus. It was the first thing I thought of when I saw his costume. Am I the only one who immediately thought of that?

Heh, i hadn't thought of it, but now that you mention it, yes!

ZQ looked particularly good in last night's Heroes. God those eyebrows and that hair!

Love your desktop, Nile, and Zach's costume is great. The only way I can recognize him at all is by his intense eyes.

Re: *Spock/Zachary Quinto Appreciation Zone*

So I have a question to all the female Trekkers and Trekkies, how does Quinto compare to Nimoy? Do you prefer Nimoy the original or Quinto or is it too early for you to say yet? As a male fan I always liked Nimoy and his portrayal of Spock though he was always to me equal in interest with Shatner's Kirk and I know that for the most part women seemed to prefer Spock to Kirk, now with the new cast its the same with me I like Pine and Quinto equally but I would like to know what the ladies have to say about the new portrayal of Spock.

Well, in terms of performance, I didn't really care for Quinto. I didn't think he really stood out in the movie, but given how tall Nimoy's shadow is, I don't know if he could ever measure up to him for me. I think it was just as impossible for Cross to measure up for Lenard's Sarek.

Quinto the actor I just absolutely adore. I think he did the best he could considering the challenge, but Spock just wasn't his best role.

I've got to be honest going into the movie Spock was the character I was most concerned with. I was really pleased with ZQ's casting as I love him on Heroes and knew he was a good actor but when the trailers started coming out I wasn't 100% convinced by what I was seeing and started to get worried that they'd messed it up. I was very relieved to be wrong, I loved his take on Spock, yes it is very different to Nimoy's but it works in the context of the movie. Of course I came out of it adoring Nimoy more than ever too.

To be honest though Spock wasn't my favourite character in TOS, McCoy was, and that was the character I came away from the movie most disappointed with and that's really unfair to Karl Urban (who I have always thought was underrated as an actor) because I think I'm just holding a grudge against him for not being DeForest Kelley.

^Wow, that is so interesting (that you were disappointed with Karl). I thought he really nailed it!

In TOS i was a Kirk lover (and still am, thanks to Pine), but i very much enjoyed ZQ's Spock. I agree with Etched though, ZQ's Spock has a different feel than Nimoy's...but i very much love the way they went with this Spock.

Re: *Spock/Zachary Quinto Appreciation Zone*

^ I think its just that McCoy was the character that I had the highest expectations for, partly because he was my favourite character going in and partly because I'd heard such high praise of Karl's performance - in hindsight I think that it was inevitable I'd be disappointed. I suspect that once I get my grubby little mitts on the DVD and can watch it a few more times I'll appreciate him a more.

I was that way with Spock. Uncle Spock is really precious to me, and so is Nimoy after Kelley passed away.

I really didn't focus so much on Urban's performance so much since all I could think about was how much I wanted to get into his pants. But I'm still gonna need years of therapy after watching this film.

I loved them all; how could I not? I just saw McCoy again a few days ago. He's still in his box.

I can totally understand that. I had the same high expectations for Kirk, and it wasn't until probably half way through the movie that i finally started to accept Pine in the role. My acceptance of him was gradual, and even after the movie was over i wasn't totally convinced....then i saw the movie again and realized how good he really was...and then all was right with the world!
