Totally awesome!

I never 'get' William Shatner. I don't know when he's serious, or when he's mocking himself... In the TOS movie production documentraries (check out the special editions of (Star Treks I-III), he plays the total ham like he's completely oblivious of what people say about him, whereas his own memiors clearly acknowledge these things. And here, at his own roast, where he knows what he's getting into, he has the audacity to walk in on his horse. How can you not love it at the same time as you roll your eyes.

Did he try to kiss Nichele after her turn roasting him... only to appear clumsy when she dodged him? It looked like that was what happened. As one who is often 'colorblind' with social interactions, I should probably empathize. But I just can't quite bring myself to.

This was one of Bill's all time greatest moments to be sure. His tribute to George Lucas at the AFI Awards is another candidate for all time funniest skit or monologue.

I can only take Shat in small doses these days. A full Roast is just to much to consume!

Well I don't eat meat but I found the roast to be pretty cheesey!

...and it must be said that Clint Howard reprising his role of Balok 40 years after the original "Corbomite Manuever" and the fact that he looked disturbingly the same was also one of the All Time most hilarious "Trek" related moments.

...Still...Shatner seranading Lucas gets my #1 nod.

Clint Howard as Balok was the only part of that show worth seeing. Props to Nimoy for staying away from the whole thing.

Nimoy defends Shatner to this day. If he hosts a broadcast movie marathon, he'll make sure V gets included. In DVD commentaries/suppliments he has referred to both the movie and Shatner's acting abilities as 'phenomenal.' Maybe they are, from a certain perspective. Who knows what he really means or thinks. He's a scholar, a gentleman and a diplomat.
