I am a self-professed game show freak… AND PROUD of it. Maybe that is why I enjoy the semi-weekly game nights. If I had a bucket list, I would put being on a game show high on that list (not number one but high). I very nearly made it on Who Wants to be a MIllionaire when it had the phone in game. I made it to the second round at which point I got a phone call and had to get through another set of questions in order to progress to New York City; unfortunately, I did not pass that test.
Tonight saw the return of Password, hosted by Mr. Regis Philbin. Two celebrities are paired with two contestants. Actress/comedienne Aisha Tyler and actor/director (maybe not so much… has he directed anything aside from the forgetable Star Trek V?)/author/and now, celebrity interviewer William Shatner were the stars. To say that Shatner was his normal, over-active self would be an understatement. At half-time, the celebrities switch sides, Bill nearly fell over something and almost ended flat on his face. You would have thought he was back on the starship Enterprise being tossed around, holding onto the railing for dear life. His game play was nothing short of memorable… if you take my meaning. But he was in there punching, having a good time, and able to have a good laugh even at his own expense which has been a trademark for his 50 years in entertainment. Unfortunately, I did not find a clip of tonight’s episode, but surely the memorable performance will be preserved in cyberspace very soon for all to enjoy over and over. However, here is a clip of a younger Bill playing a solo round of Pyramid.
