    Wasn't crazy about him as Chekov. He was good in that Charlie Bartlett movie though.

    he did kind of bug me as Checkov. I want Koenig playing the role or nobody at all. For me, the role of Chekov should be retired, but Simon Pegg IS Scotty. Go figure.

    It wasn't campy to a wee lad DF in 74'. :fil:

    I kid.
    Of course it was campy and corny and towards the end of each season, funny to see how big Shatner's belly would get.
    He always got porky at the end of a season.
