I'm really shocked by Shatner's attitude. Whereas Nimoy is being very Spock like in his handing over his character to Quinto, I think Shatner isn't acting like Kirk at all. Maybe he's acting like Kirk when he was possessed by that crazy, hysterical woman... what was that episode's name "Turnabout Intruder" or something... but certainly not behaving like the Captain Kirk we love and respect. It's sad. He has everything yet cannot show an ounce of generosity.
Maybe he's not acting like Kirk because he's not Kirk
. Maybe he had a prior commitment. Maybe he's playing up the sore loser thing because he has a better sense of humor than some other people. Maybe people try to make way too much out of nothing.
