    I really enjoyed it. It even makes me like Shatner a little more than I already did!

    The documentary got better and better as it went on.  I felt Shatner had a connection with every single actor, but especially with Patrick Stewart (no surprise) & Scott Bakula.  It made me feel even more respect for all the actors that played “captain”, but Avery definitely is a different sort of character…not that I have a problem with it.  I just have the feeling he may have been a tough interview-lol.
