Given how much animosity has been generated by his Star Trek co-stars, I can't wait for the episode when Shatner sits down with Walter Koenig.

This is a show which shouldn't work, but somehow does. It's amazing how engaging Shatner can be, and how deep he can get into people's heads.

I am such a HUGE Shatner/Star Trek fan and can't believe that I haven't seen the show. I'm going to have to scout around for them. I've interviewed Shatner a number of times over the years, and what I've found is that if he's in the mood and engaged, he's a FANTASTIC interview. If he's not.... well, you realize it pretty quickly into the conversation.
