Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

Fans of William Shatner‘s Denny Crane may notice some similarities between the political incorrect and larger-than-life character from Boston Legal, and $#*! My Dad Says’ Ed Goodson.

At seventy-nine, most successful actors might want to kick back and enjoy retirement in some pleasant locale, but that’s not the case for William Shatner, who is busier than ever with his established and new television shows.

Shatner Response To PTC Boycott Campaign

Monday, August 9th, 2010

Last week, the Parents Television Council (PTC) called for a boycott of $#*! My Dad Says, but the star of the show, William Shatner, thinks that too much is being made of the bleeped out profanity.

PTC President Tim Winter is upset over the profanity, even though the profanity is not even being used in the title of the show, being replaced by $#*! instead. “Parents really do care about profanity when their kids are watching TV,” said Winter. “All parents? No, but something like eighty or ninety percent of parents. Putting an expletive in the title of a show is crossing new territory, and we can’t allow that to happen on our watch.”

The Parents Television Council (PTC) has written to around three hundred companies who advertise on television in hopes of getting them to “send a message” to CBS.


Shatner: Exploring New Frontiers

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

In his work on $#*! My Dad Says, William Shatner is exploring a whole new frontier in a new age of television show production.

Shatner began his career on live television, but how shows were made was very different back then. “I was there when the cameras were as big as this table had internal fans that were whirring because of the heat of the tubes and had to come as close as this for a close up,” he said. “Now we’re talking about green screen and putting us on locations we’ll never visit, unfortunately. We can put us in Paris on this show and never leave the warmth of Warner Bros. It is beyond irony. It is trying to catch the tiger by the tail. The miracle is our inventiveness and the tragedy of our lives is the inventiveness. It’s beyond irony. It’s whatever term you guys can come up with.”

$#*! My Dad Says will air September 23, and had Halpern senior had his way, he would have been played by someone associated with another famous sci-fi franchise.
