This chick has had her early birthday present, Christmas and New Year's all rolled into one. And, full disclosure here, I should probably just go ahead and rename this blog "Touch of Fringe" because of my obsession with this show. This is the third post in a row about "Fringe" but only because it's the best show on TV right now and has been so amazing the past few weeks that I can't get it out of my head. *Spoiler alert* If you are a "Fringe" watcher and you have yet to see part 1 of 2 of the season 4 finale, "Brave New World" STOP HERE.
But this entry is about more than just "Fringe". It centers on one of my all-time favorite actors, Leonard Nimoy. This incredible man has given so much to his fans; now, in his 80s, he is still giving. Not content to rest on his considerable laurels, he has come back to "Fringe" once more in the character of William Bell. And let me tell you, his return has made innumerable fans so very glad. "Fringe", Bell, chess, what more could I ask for? And, funny thing is, chess seems to be a recurring theme in my blogs as well. Rumor is, he will also be returning in the next "Star Trek" movie, produced by J.J. Abrams, who is also responsible for the last "Star Trek" movie as well as "Fringe." What a sweet deal Nimoy must have hammered out with Abrams. Whatever he is being paid, he is more than worth it. From Spock to Bell, Nimoy has defined and inhabited characters in science fiction that will never be paralleled. He is truly one-of-a-kind, a master of his craft.
Of course, I could continue ad nauseum, but I would rather just let the man's work speak for itself. Birthday, Christmas, and New Year's, I tell ya!
Mr. Nimoy, I have been, and always shall be, your fan, your admirer, and your friend. May you live long and prosper.
