William Shatner’s new web series, Brown Bag Wine Tasting, follows Shatner as he meets with guests and asks them to blindly taste wine and describe it in their own words. In the fourth episode of the series, he welcomed Star Trek: The Next Generation and Reading Rainbow star LeVar Burton.
Burton, who described Shatner as the “embodiment of the indomitability” and the “model for what it means to persevere,” discussed a myriad of topics, including his childhood, the importance of education, and the return of Reading Rainbow.
