I loved this show, even if my favorite Shatner was largely missing from it.  It was smart, funny, and nerdy as all get up – on top of that all the actors playing the different Shatner roles had his mannerisms – the bombast and pauses, the double-fist punch, the T.J. Hooker roll – down perfectly.  Even that Twilight Zone episode with the creature on the wing of the plane has a new cast to it when re-interpreted by the Priceline Negotiator.  Denny Crane appears but once, briefly, and I ended up chatting with someone who was equally disappointed that the Mad Cow attorney did not have a more prominent role in the Shatner collage.  It’s true that Denny Crane is such a perfect satire it would have been hard to treat him with any more irony than his character already owns.  But if anybody could have pulled it off, Snip, Snap and Snurr here could have managed it. They seem like an Enterprising crew.
