Attention Trekkies & Trekkers:
I have a confession to make…
I am not one of you. :green24
That’s probably not so hard to believe, considering I rarely (never?) talk about Star Trek-related characters, issues, & what not, & that I rarely (never?) post Star Trek-related Friday Funnies.
But would it surprise you to hear that I don’t think I’ve ever seen even one episode of Star Trek? Not the original, not The Next Generation, not Deep Space Nine, & none of the movies.
It’s not that I dislike futuristic stuff. I mean, hel-lo? Diehard Browncoat Firefly fan over here! And I absolutely loved the short-lived Space Rangers, if anybody remembers that show. :green4
But it may have something to do with the fact that I strongly dislike William Shatner. I’m sorry, I know many of you—especially if you’re a huge Star Trek fan—find that blasphemous, but he’s always bugged the heck out of me. I can’t even stand to watch him on those Priceline commercials. :green3
Now, though, they have these new Star Trek movies with the cutie patooty Chris Pine in the role of James T., & this may just be a Captain Kirk I can wrap myself around. (Literally, figuratively—take your pick. :green7 )
So I’ve done something rather out of the ordinary…you know, for me. I’ve recorded both Star Trek & Star Trek: Into Darkness on the DVR & I’m actually thinking of…gasp!…watching them. Soon.
What do you think—will I like them? :green15
Will I really like them, so much that I end up kicking myself for not watching sooner? :green21
Or will I end up rolling my eyes & giving up after fifteen or twenty minutes? :green9
Whether you’re a die-hard Star Trek fan or have maybe just seen the movies for random entertainment purposes, let me know what you think of the films. But ***NO SPOILERS***—I’ve gotta go into them with a totally open mind & zero expectations. :green8
