Live long and...



I am a proud Trekkie and have been since the first episode aired in 1966 when I was 15 years old. My crush on Leonard Nimoy's Spock was epic. I had friends make fun of me for my silly obsession- friends who were obsessing over shows like "Peyton Place" instead.

"Peyton Place", anyone remember that? I didn't think so.

Forty years later and my little obsession has become part of the mythology of a culture. And tonight we saw the newest version- an incredibly fun reboot of the entire series. And to this I say : Forty More Years!!!

Check out the reviews here and don't pay any attention to that silly Anthony Lane - he's no fun at all.

I am so glad you got to go see it. I haven't yet. Al Roker on the Today program publicly stated how much he liked it amid much surprise and admiration. Can't wait to watch it. "Live long and..."

We had friends for dinner last night and they were raving about this movie! Yes, we are trekkies too!

I think I was three when Star Trek first aired, but I remember times when my parents were having parties, that we stayed up to watch it. And of course I watched every single one in syndication, to the point I can tell you the name of the episode after seeing the teaser.
Can't wait to see the new film!
