Joy H. (joyofglensfalls) | 172 comments William Shatner has a talk show on the BIO Channel, Mondays at 10 PM.
It's called: "Shatner's Raw Nerve"
See details at:
"William Shatner sits down with actors, politicians, and others for candid interviews."

Past episodes can be viewed at the IMDb link above.
I love good interviews. Sometimes I find them via YouTube.

Robyn (roxy_nj) | 2775 comments Gees, Joy I'm just following you around here. LOL

I've caught a few episodes and it's an interesting show. I like the way Shatner gets people talking about the past or stuff u don't hear about all the time.

Joy H. (joyofglensfalls) | 172 comments Yes, Roxy, Shatner conducts interesting interviews. I love the crazy chair he uses on his show. I can't find a picture of it though.

Robyn (roxy_nj) | 2775 comments I can picture it . I think it looks like it must be rock hard but it does require them to keep eye contact

Joy H. (joyofglensfalls) | 172 comments I hope I'll remember to watch Shatner's interview tomorrow night. So many times I forget to watch the shows I had intended to watch. I'm working on a little show calendar for myself so I can remember which shows to watch when.

Joy H. (joyofglensfalls) | 172 comments Yes, Roxy, the chair is shaped like an S so that their faces can be close as they look at one another. It's different!

At the link below, there's a video showing the chair. You have to scroll down to see the video window. Then you have to close the advertisement. But it's there. :)

Joy H. (joyofglensfalls) | 172 comments PS-Roxy, one of the comments below the video with the chair says:
"I still can’t get over that chair. It feels like they should have their right arms locked, serving each other a glass of champaign."
So true! LOL

Robyn (roxy_nj) | 2775 comments Oh, Joy you MUST get a DVR or TVo! Toulon never miss a show

message 9: by Joy H. (new)

Joy H. (joyofglensfalls) | 172 comments I know, Roxy. I've been trying to convince my husband to get a DVR. We've discussed it. He was supposed to give me one for Christmas. But he never got around to it. I need to do more persuading. :)

Joy H. (joyofglensfalls) | 172 comments I enjoyed last night's interviews. Shatner asks excellent questions and is very intense. His personality stimulates the conversation. He has a great sense of humor and is fast with the comeback. At one point Leonard Nimoy said something like: "You're interrupting". Shatner shot back with something like: "That's why they call it conversation!". I get such a kick out of Shatner. He does expose the "raw nerve" of each interviewee.

Shatner likes each guest to bring him a little gift. It's interesting to see what people bring. Jenna Jameson brought him a horse whip. Ed Asner brought him something a bit bizarre, something worn by men in an unusual African tribe. I didn't catch the name of it. Judge Judy brought him a measuring stick and spoke about how times have changed and how our culture has enlarged its outlook on things. I can't remember what gift Leonard Nimoy brought, but he showed some interesting photographs which he took. Perhaps one of those photos was a gift.

Joy H. (joyofglensfalls) | 172 comments Tonight, 3/14/11, Shatner interviewed LeVar Burton who played the role of Kunta Kinte in the TV series, "Roots", in 1977. In the series, Kunta Kinte was kidnapped from his African village and sold into slavery.

Believe it or not, I never watched that series but I intend to watch it via Netflix soon. Shatner's show tonight reminded me that I had missed seeing "Roots". Of course, "Roots" was adapted from Alex Haley's novel, Roots.

Shatner is now interviewing Walter Koenig, one of the Star Trek actors. He played Chekov. I never watched Star Trek either.
