#60 “And the Children Shall Lead”

Hi All!   Now that the Trek Core TOS gallery is back on line — I was able to finish my most recent poster — And the Children Shall Lead.

It wasn’t the greatest of episodes; the producers basically wanted to  recreate the atmosphere of the  the much better Miri, but Melvin Belli? Really??  Creating the poster my first thought was how to portray the little brats darlings and a deceptively angelic approach seemed appropriate.  Note, the backdrop is actually the Friendly Angel’s robe. Meanwhile, Kirk and Sulu are freaking out, Uhura is devastated and Spock just wants to meditate himself out of there!

My Weekly Spock 12/3/12 – Post-Spock Eeee-vil!

Nimoy so often played villains in his varied career, especially when it was his bread and butter, for a good part of  two decades before Spock and Paris.  But even after his legendary status as the ever-good Spock, he was always happy to play ‘the heavy’, often with charming overtones as seen here in the Columbo episode “A Stitch in Crime” as the evil Dr. Barry Mayfield.  And there was Miller, the nasty bounty hunter you rooted for, who lost his life (and clothes) in Catlow, Mustapha Mond in Brave New World, and even as the evil Achmet Khan in the TV movie Marco Polo.  (video)– Probably not the most memorable of movies, but I recall a line of his from that character where he was attempting to seduce a young woman “Don’t be afraid to touch me” he said.  She was repulsed, of course. (was she crazy??)   Most recently, he’s been the evil William Bell  of Fringe, at least I think he’s evil, but to be honest, I haven’t been able to watch any of it, it’s too creepy!  But kudos to the man for coming out of retirement to play him: “I’m a sucker for a good role!” he joked.
