  • I see you watched Shatner's The Captains. There was something in Kate Mulgrew's interview that really resonated with me, and that was the bit about her father not believing in acting as a viable profession for his daughter. I'm a Kentuckian; Mulgrew was from Indiana? Somewhere in the midwest, anyway.

    I grew up knowing that when they asked what you wanted to do when you grew up, you didn't say anything related to the arts. Those might be hobbies at most, but they weren't things that people from here actually did for a living. I fought to marginalize my creative inclinations my entire life, until I was confronted by literal life-or-death depression last year.

    Watching The Captains earlier this year in that context made me really appreciate and admire what she did in spite of her discouraging background. I wish I'd had that kind of self-confidence. I wasn't a fan of Voyager or Captain Janeway as a character, but I always liked Mulgrew in the role and wished they'd given her better material. Seeing her segment of that doc really cemented my admiration for her as a human being.

    Also, seeing Avery Brooks's segments made me believe that he's become batshit crazy.

  • WOAH. Why did that post five times?!

  • Your "post" button was overcome by the spirit of Avery Brooks perhaps? ;)

  • Go on...! :P
