Jackie Chiles is awesome
I think he was in ST3 as a cadet as the ENTERPRISE arrived at Space Dock

I liked that it was complex but I got it first time. it was Phelps apparent death and treachery that spun my noggin

Only because when Hunt puts it together, he runs two scenarios through his head and changes midway through.

I had to watch twice just to make sure I followed which run-through was fully the true one.

In Airplane and Police Squad did it matter that people died?

Police Squad was awesome - way better than Naked Gun movies.

Leslie Nielson interview on the DVD about why it was cancelled cracks me up and also makes me cry

only in America

It was too far ahead of it's time. Naked Gun had to way more broad for films.

I like both the original IM TV series and the IM movies, but really the movies aren't all that similar to the series. The movies are more of a vehicle for Tom Cruise.

The Naked Gun movies had one unique thing going for it: It co-starred OJ Simpson.

The original IM was more of an ensemble piece, though. There was beautiful Cinnamon (Barbara Bain), tech genius Barney (Greg Morris), slightly edgy Rollin Hand (Martin Landau), et al. Even Jim Phelps (Peter Graves) wasn't originally supposed to be a "star" character, but rather just part of the team, albeit in a leadership position.

MI-1 had that, but made sense to get away from that after most of the team got killed or were traitors.
