Attention Must be Paid
When Sarcasm Girl was very small, she used to watch Star Trek:TNG with us on Saturday nights; it was known as "Captain," as in "Mama, I want to watch Captain, and space, fina fwonteer!" (This has to be said in a sprightly small-child voice to be really effective.) When we first introduced her to the original Star Trek she was adamant, that wasn't Captain. "I want really really captain!" I mentioned to her that as far as I was concerned, Shatner is "really really Captain." Now she is old and jaded, and able to appreciate the overthetop pleasures of Shatner and Ricardo Montalban overacting at each other; still, when I showed her the photo of Young Shatner that was on IMDB this morning her mouth dropped open in stunned amazement.
