|TV and Movie Trivia Tribute
|One of my favorite actors. I can still watch the original "Star Trek" even today and even after watching certain episodes I can't tell you how many times. Now, I'm not going to say that every show was a gem, but certain ones stick out as classics ("The Trouble with Tribbles", "Amok Time", "Journey to Babel" and of course "The City on the Edge of Forever" with Joan Collins. You couldn't help liking the "Spock" character for some reason. Maybe because he was half-human and you just waited for him to show some small sign of emotion. Of course, it's not the only work Nimoy's done, but for me, he is "Mr. Spock". R.I.P.|
