Firstly, never mind Wesley Crusher blowing Kirk’s mind — let’s talk about my mind being blown by the fact that William Shatner is doing yet another series. What the ever-loving…how does this amazing 84 year-old dude keep outdoing himself?
Man, we’re just living in his name-your-own-priced world, aren’t we?
In his online show Brown Bag Wine Tasting — made at “a special location for chefs, dogs, and itinerant people” — The Shat hosts celebrities (and non) for blind taste-testings and random conversation. As anyone whose seen his other talk show series knows, Shatner is always a good host, but that’s not to say he can’t be overshadowed once in a while. Especially if he’s hosting a very enthusiastic, now and former self-described Trekkie (and Trek star) who endeavors to induct OriginalKirk™ into video game fandom. Note to self: Never give Wil Wheaton coffee.
The expressions on the Shat’s face are…priceless.
I highly recommend watching the next clip as well, in which Wheaton explains his beer-making process, and what the ramifications of eating a living organism are, science fiction and alien life. Our boy (he still is, isn’t he?) Crusher then blows the Shat’s mind all over again, describing the wine they drink in beer terms. “This is a malt-forward beer…”
