There is, what I call, the TV Holy Trinity. Three actors who define the pure love that I have for TV as a medium. I grew up watching repeats of their shows on TV and they symbolise what TV is about for me.
Bea Arthur. Adam West. William Shatner.
I’ll always regret not getting along to see Bea Arthur perform her one woman show a few years ago in Melbourne (my student budget simply never permitted it). Now that she has passed away, the chance of seeing her live will never be an option. I refuse to make that mistake with Shatner and West.
Shatner will also be making an appearance at a Star Trek Con event in Sydney and Melbourne.
Tickets are not cheap, but will we ever get a chance like this again? It’s pretty unlikely.
It’s going to be glorious.
