Interesting, and much too short.
14 January 2005 | by commandamandaSee all my reviews

I found "Mind Meld" to be interesting from a Trekker's perspective, as well as possibly from an actor's. The differences between Nimoy's and Shatner's version of craft is explained in detail, offering insights into why the two are friends. Like salt and pepper, they go together - but play off each other. I found some of Shatner's stories to be redundant with those he's told before. He's hesitant, excited, even nervous. Nimoy, on the other hand, told his old stories with such fluidity and vigor that it was a pleasure to watch him. Many secrets are revealed here, especially about Nimoy's life and struggles. Somehow though - I wanted to hear more about the little things. What ticked them off about life on the set? The food? The tricks? These were all left behind in a cloud of private battles. Graphics interrupt what could have been a continual conversation, dividing it up into subjects. I didn't enjoy that. But watching Nimoy deep in thought, sitting on the edge of his seat, finishing Shatner's sentences for him was incredible. One suddenly had the understanding of how they functioned on the set together on a day to day basis. Best up is that of the conversation inside Nimoy's ground-floor office. Look for it. Not really a must-have for Trekkers, but enjoyable and too short. Try it.
