|TV and Movie Trivia Tribute
|Played in one of my favorite TV shows, "Star Trek". Next time you watch one of those shows, try to pay attention to the music. People may not know how that can affect a TV show or movie, but on "Star Trek", I think the music was great. One thing Bill is made fun of about is a kind of pausing style while he's acting. I can't say I ever noticed it until I saw it made fun of. Don't really think it's as bad as some made it out to be. Although he was going for laughs in "Airplane II: The Sequel", he remains "Captain Kirk" to me.|
