wil wheatonCraziest/Funniest TV Squad Comment:
I couldn't point to just one, but the readers who think American Idol is Serious Business are pretty awesome.

If you were only able to watch one TV show, what would it be?
The Twilight Zone. It's an anthology with lots of science fiction in it, so I'd be able to watch it for a long time before I got bored.

Most overrated and underrated TV show (current or past)?
Lost started out great, and I loved the first two seasons, but I gave up midway through season three when I started to feel like the four-toed emperor had no clothes.

Arrested Development and Firefly never got support from the network, so they didn't find the audience that could have propelled them to the level of success both shows deserved.

Best benefit of writing for TV Squad?
Writing my TNG reviews has given me an excuse to watch episodes that I haven't watched in a decade or more, and in many cases relive some of the wonderful childhood memories associated with making them. Without TV Squad, I wouldn't have had a reason to do that.

Where else can we see you on the web?
My blog is at wilwheaton.typepad.com. I'm on Twitter at twitter.com/wilw. I'm also a scout for propeller news at propeller.com/member/wilw.

If you were able to interview a TV character -- not the actor or actress -- who would it be?
Mal or Wash from Firefly are two guys who would be fun to interview, but what I'd most like to do is sit down with the characters from How I Met Your Mother -- under the pretense of doing an interview -- when all I really wanted to do was have drinks and hang out.

Echoing above! TVSquad: please bring Wil Wheaton back to do more of these! I'm watching TNG Season One with my son, who has never seen them before, and I've found reading these recaps has really enhanced my warp-drive through memory lane. Bring Wheaton back!

Hi Will,

I really enjoyed your Star Trek reviews. They were so well written, and full of interesting insights into the show. I was too young to watch them when they aired, so I'm watching them now with your blog as a companion. You seem to be a lot harder on the show than I am, and it's been a surprise to me that people hated the Wesley character too - he's corny sure, but the whole show is corny.

Anyway, would you please consider writing some more? I'm sure I'm not the only person who enjoyed them.

Ah, yes, but the Firefly episodes that were there were wonderful. It's too bad that the network big wigs were unable to see what a treasure they had.
