The Shatner pilot, now on Youtube

I had heard of this, and Mrs Lee posted some stills from it a while back; but until today I was unaware that it had been on Youtube for a year or so.

It's not perfect -- both Wolfe and Archie could be played a bit more seriously, but I like the casting/visuals better than the A&E series. On A&E Archie reminded me of Dagwood in the Blondie movies and Wolfe was just some slightly chunky guy who acted grumpy all the time and shouted too much.

>1 Crypto-Willobie: Thank you for sharing that! Aside from Wolfe being a tad too comic, I really liked it! I think William Shatner made a terrific Archie. He isn't exactly what I see in my head, but he has all the right moves. :) I also liked the camaraderie between Wolfe and Archie.

P. S. I don't remember posting stills, but of course that doesn't mean it didn't happen. I have a mind like a steel sieve.
