THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE
on 18 January 2016
2 old friends get together to look back at their time on Star Trek, their careers in general and their private lives, including Nimoy's alcoholism, the death of 1 of Shatner's wives and Shatner realising that the supporting cast of Star Trek all hated his guts !
It's truly sad that their friendship would later break down with Nimoy refusing to speak to Shatner - there's been much speculation over this and I believe it may've been down to sour grapes on Shatner's behalf for him not being included in J.J. Abrhams' reworking of Star Trek whilst Nimoy was, which resulted in Shatner making a few negative remarks against Nimoy's involvment which Leonard didn't much care for.
Despite what would later transpire between the 2 men, at the time they made this interview they clearly loved one another deeply, which is demonstrated by their roaring laughter with each other throughout.
Especially moving now are the final 10 minutes when talk turns towards death and their good friend Deforest Kelly - this is all-the-more poignant now that Nimoy has himself passed away.
I defy anybody not to have a tear in their eye when watching the last shot of Nimoy putting his arm around Shatner and telling him that he is his best friend.
A truly beautiful viewing experience then, I just wished it could've been longer as I easily could've watched these 2 men chatting away to each other for another hour at least !
