    Just for laughs. He does a pretty good imitation of Kirk/Shatner. :)

    And when "regular" people imitate Shatner, they're pretty much just imitating Pollack.

    He's quite good isn't he at Shatner, although I've no idea who the other characters were meant to be!!! :wtf:

    Chekov is Robin Williams, Spock is Christopher Lloyd as Reverend Jim from Taxi, Bones is Jack Nicholson, and Scotty is Dudley Moore as Arthur Bach from the movie Arthur. The skater at the end is a callback to an earlier bit from his act about the Olympic skater Brian Boitano. I've also seen versions of this bit where he does Peter Falk as McCoy.

    Kevin Pollak, not Kevin Pollock.

    And he really has Shatner/Kirk down.

    It’s an amusing bit but his least convincing mimicry is that of Shatner. His Reverend Jim and Arthur Bach are spot on, though.

    Leslie Nielsen was doing the rounds a lot at the time of TOS in the sixties and he was the type of actor that could play a Starship commander who had disobeyed the rules or had turned evil very easily so I wonder why he never took the credits? That was until everyone found out that he could play comedy as he was a very funny guy in real life and then that's all he was ever offered was comedy!!! :p

    I could never understand why Police Squad was only six episodes my Lord? The films weren't really a patch on the TV series sadly!

    I don’t know how they do it in the UK, JB, but here it’s all about that Nielsen ratings game. The bean counters at the television networks rely on this scam to decide whether a series lives or dies.

    Partially because the studio execs at the time notably said that this series required TV viewers to pay too much attention!

    Kind of like that television executive or critic who said TOS was “too cerebral”. :lol:
