I’ve been Shatnered!

William Shatner and others have been spending some time making a low-budget SF film in Iowa. Except, as revealed here, it’s all a hoax, part of a forthcoming Reality TV show.

    It is a funny thing
    I work at a gaming convention, and one of the invited guests was C. J. Henderson. He is an author whose writings mainly revolve around the Cthuhlu Mythos.

    Well anyway, he wrote a book and the publisher demanded that it have a known person to forward it. He called Bill Shatner up and before he knew it, he had the forward on his desk the next day.

    I told him all of the bad things you hear about Bill, but he said that was not his personal experience. He had nothing but good things to say about him.

    So go figure, William Shatner might not be that bad after all.

      Unless you are Wil Wheaton. He has had some rather interesting things happen regarding William Shatner…

        Like that?

        Well, I watched The World Series, With WILLIAM FUCKING SHATNER.

        It was so goddamn cool. I was sitting there, talking about baseball with him,
        discussing Randy Johnson versus Curt Shilling (Who was better), the various
        strategies employed by the teams during the few innings that we were
        watching…and he was so cool to me, I don’t even know what to do. He was
        nice. He was funny. He was warm, genuine, and basically just a 100% cool-ass
        guy.

        Matter of fact, I can say this one thing about the show: William Shatner was
        the funniest I have ever seen him, or anyone who was in Star Trek, ever.

        William Shatner has earned 50,000 cool points with me, after tonight. One for
        each monkey at this site.

        Hmmm, you must have meant more like this:

        WILLIAM FUCKING SHATNER! Old toupee-head won’t
        even look at me! I don’t
        know what this guy’s problem is, really. I think he’s very funny, I think he’s
        got a great sense of humor about himself, but he is always a dick to me.

        Maybe there’s 2 Shatners… like in that transporter accident episode. One of
        ’em is a jerk, and the other is cool…

    Ugh.
    A low-budget sci-fi film shot by William Shatner would have at least been worth seeing, even if it were bad. Maybe especially if it were bad. But another reality show? Who the hell needs another one of those?

    What could have been a novel idea turns out to be just more crap.

      I think you’re forgetting about TekWar,TekJustice,TekLab,TekLords and TekWar(the TV series)

      Novel? Oh ya, I vaguely remenber a dozen of them. This may or may not be a complete list.

        I’d watch any of those before I’d watch most reality TV I see advertised, honestly. Bad as they are.

          Same here. Can’t we get to vote on which TV show gets thrown off the
          networks? I’d get in on that!
