Shatner. Winkler. Foreman. Bradshaw. Tokyo. What could possibly go wrong?®

Ha, nice. That was a fun little show.

Why is Wesley Crusher as important as William Shatner and the rest of the Next Gen crew? This is really baffling

1: The Shat and The Fonz on the same bill? Really necessary? Did Kirk need an understudy? I think not.

2: Tim Russ has had the most unique hairline in Hollywood for decades. Not receding. Not a widow’s peak. Just……there. And he still has it. That alone should earn him a star on The Walk of Fame.

3: Shut up, Wesley.

Let’s be honest, does anyone find these interesting anymore? How much more can you learn from these people about their respective shows? Everything that has been said, has been said.

If you’ve met these people at conventions before or if you’ve watched some of the previous virtual convention panels chances are you will probably have heard a lot of their stories before. That’s been my impression from watching video clips. Hosts tend to ask the same questions over and over again and the actors have certainly built up a routine of how to fill the time. At least, these virtual panels are free so you don’t have to feel bad for spending a lot of money just to hear the same stuff all over again. My guess is that most people who watch these virtual panels do this mostly to kill some time listening to people they like, not to learn something new.
