Did anybody else watch this? I was disciplining a child, so I missed the first 15 minutes or so.
I was amazed by Armin Shimerman who played Quark the Ferengi on DS9. I had 2 thoughts: He looks like DeeDee's father on the Rugrats (okay, I have a 5 year old, I get to see this show pretty often) AND, well, I'd always thought those big ears were part of his costume, but . . .
Wil Wheaton got a lot of attention from her. In his comments later, he said he was playing the part of a self-sbsorbed young star, but it seemed awfully genuine. I don't know if he's that good an actor.
Denise Crosby (Tasha Yar) looked like a soccer mom.
Robert Picardo and LeVar Burton ended up being the last two, which was interesting. Usually out of the last 3, a smart one and a ahem not so smart one make it into the final round because of the competition factor (easier to beat a less knowledgeable opponent). I was pretty impressed with both of them, they both seemed quite intelligent. Robert Picardo of course is middle aged with a family so he certainly has life experience on his side, but LeVar Burton must have learned a lot when he was doing Reading Rainbow, he was very intelligent.
Hubby came in in the middle. He loves that show. He was pretty impressed with me until I told him it was all Star Trek people. He doesn't watch the shows so he didn't recognize any of them!
