"Warp speed, Mr. Sulu."

Day 19 - Best TV show cast

Okay, this is an impossible question. All my favorite tv show have awesome casts. They all took their characters and made them their own, and if you replaced a single one, it wouldn't be the same show.

But, for the sake of argument... I need to pick one. I'm going to go with the original Star Trek. They were perfection. And come on. The show runs three seasons, dies a horrible network-induced death... and lived on. Spawned a jillion movies, new series. That kind of longevity is not just because there were some great episodes in there. It's because that particular cast worked so well together on screen. Gene Roddenberry created the world, but those actors gave it life and breath. So, they get my vote for the best TV show cast.

  1. Hmm. This IS a tough one. But as far as classic t.v. series go, I would have to pick "Hogan's Heroes" for best cast. :-)

  2. Another good one! If it said "favorite tv cast" I'd have a different answer!
