  • Yay! Lenny is like the Michael Jordan of Trek Alumni. He can’t stay retired. 😉

  • Seventhbeacon

    Too bad he couldn’t guest star on a funny show instead!

  • John

    Seventhbeacon, let me guess. You’re exactly like one of the geeks on the show. LOL

  • A la Saavik, humour must be a difficult concept for you.

    I like Leonard Nimoy, of course, don’t get me wrong… but, if you’re going to announce that you’re retiring from something, do it. Don’t do this little “un-retiring every 3 months” dance. It cheapens the emotions of people that had already come to terms with the retirement.

  • PurpleTrekkie

    dude…. srsly? be glad he’s alive, be glad he’s still working — when he wants to; he’s earned it. besides, why be that emotionally invested in someone else’s retirement/life?

  • Kang the Unbalanced

    I have to agree. I love ya, Len, but if you’re going to retire, retire. If you want to “un-retire”, like Ozzy did, then un-retire and just announce you’re not working full time anymore and you’ll do or not do whatever the f&^k you want. You’ve earned the right.

  • Seventhbeacon

    Nope, I just don’t find regurgitated 20 year old jokes and prat falls mixed with insulting canned laughter to be amusing. This comedy is way past its expiration date.

  • Seventhbeacon

    Oh no, I love things that are actually funny. Example of my tastes: Arrested Development, The Office, Modern Family, Frasier (my last fave of the old style comedies), My Name Is Earl….

    Canned laughter is a sign of shoddy one-liners and fear of jokes being able to stand on their own.

  • Seventhbeacon

    Btw, proud geek here, more than willing to laugh at myself and do so frequently. I would love an actually funny geek show, but this one is out of touch and simply poorly written.

  • mvdelaney77

    Exactly! Personally, I’d be happy for him to continue doing things for years to come… all the way to the end… but, not by mockingly entering and exiting “retirement” all the time. Do what you want, but don’t feel the need to generate stories about your retirement when it’s apparent you’re as retired as Cher ever will be.

  • John

    Lol if you say so. The show is hilarious.

  • Seventhbeacon

    Heh, yeah, a good number of my friends enjoy it too. This conversation went basically about the same as those ones do, lol!

  • Spock Lives!

    Gee…everyone likes the show including your friends and you don’t!?! What’s wrong with that picture Sevenbeacon?

  • Seventhbeacon

    Hehe, it shows that good taste is in the hands of the minority.
