I don't get it. what's so special about a call from TJ Hooker?

Did they spend 15 minutes singing Row Row Row Your Boat?

Chris Hadfield is awesome. He makes me proud to be Canuckistani.

It's Shatner's world. Hadfield just orbits it.

He needs his own weekly show at this point.  His Twitter account is a good follow.

They have filters now that auto-cut dead air from stuff.

Shatner's speech impediment has been fixed with technology.

I don't know which one of them was more giddy for the opportunity to speak live.

Why would he do that? I would have called him "Col. Hadfield".

I dunno, I feel like he got the cadence down pretty well.  Maybe add a pause between 'shatner' and 'calls', but if he was aiming for realism rather than the standard over-the-top parody I think subby nailed it.

Why'd he call? Because he CAAAAANNNNNN!

If it was me getting the call in space, you can damn well bet I'd end the conversation by putting on my Ricardo Montalban accent and saying:

"I shall leave you as you left me, as you left her; marooned for all eternity in the center of a dead planet... buried alive... buried aliiivvveee...."

But I bet Shatner would screw up his line.

That was an AWESOME move, playing Shatner on using the old yeoman's whistle sound effect off his tablet.

He was on other shows, you know. He was the gay guy in Lost in Space. And the smarmy lawyer in LA Law.

So Chris Hadfields guest appearence on Big Bang Theory is pretty much in the bag now.
