Reactions and Reviews

Editorial on interpretations of Kirk. Makes the interesting point that for most of us a few of a character’s better episodes establish that character for us. But Kirk, because of the way tv works, had to be the central character almost all the time, including for the “Broad of the Week” episodes, so that when taken as a whole the character ends up looking shallow.
