Interesting enough for what it is-
on January 21, 2014
Captains Close Up admittedly is a little annoying for its double-dipping, as there was a shorter version of this--- but a prerequisite for someone to like a dvd like this of course is for someone who be really fascinated about actors and Star Trek in general. Since it is a double-dip, and since it looked like there was more (presumably) to the interviews, it would have been nice to have had more on this disc. Would have also been nice for Shatner to have had interviews with some of his co-stars about what they thought of him during his tenure on Trek- but since this is a Shatner production and since 3/4ths of the dvd cover has a giant closeup of him, it's foolish to NOT think that he would have treated his own 'mini-biography' with kid gloves. Would have been nice if there were a more objective director shooting this whole thing, but for what it is, we still get a lot of great tidbits (including one pretty horrible bit about how Kate Mulgrew was treated by Paramount and the execs on the last day of shooting Voyager) on very likeable actors that I didn't know about otherwise. Good..... but could have been even greater.
