    Well, I just finished work on AMC (American Movie Classics) "Movie At Our House". And there is no wqay I'll be on the cutting room floor on this one, lol, guarenteed.

    We're watching "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home". And when it goes to comercial break me and two other Trekkies discuss with the hosts various asspects of Trek.

    About half way through the taping, we're on the couch and I'm talking about transparent alunium and how it is possable and the producer says "Excuse me, you can't be in here, this is a closed set". We turn around and standing there is WALTER KOENIG (Checkov)!!! And after almost falling out of my chair say, "The bathroom's down the hall and to the right. So, as I was saying..." And we all laughed. I was the only one who could talk (except the hosts). the other two trekkies were so stunned they couldn't form complex sentences so I had to ask him questions. HOW COOL IS THAT? I GOT TO INTERVIEW CHECKOV!!!!

    Watch it, or I'll sick my targ on you! July 20th on AMC (I believe it'll be at 8:00, but check local listings).

    Wow dude, congrats! That is definately sweet, I'll check that out. If it were me though, I'd have busted out a lightsaber on the set and assaulted everyone there, just to show how much better Star Wars is lol.

    Here's some things to expect: Varoius impressions (Spock, Kirk, Sulu, Picard), me being a geek, me being funny, me interviewing Checkov.

    Things most likely to be cut: about an hours worth of bloopers on everyone's part, naughty behavior not sutable for tv (that would be the host's fault), my scientific explanation of the following; warp fields, the physics and science behind transparent alunium and it's complete basis in reality, gravity wells, and deffinitly my rant on 4th dimensional math. (I'm too much of a geek for my own good sometimes)

    I was also told on two occasions to go "back into my basement". Reminded me of when Random told me to "Crawl back into your mullet, Passow!". This will be the second to last episode of the series because it has finished its run on tv.

    Sounds awesome Jon. Remind me of this again once it gets closer to being aired. Glad you had fun. While still a geek, I'd be totally lost in the world of Trek. However, 4th dimension space-time continuum quantum mechanics talk... I'm totally down with that.

    As long as you're basing your stuff on the new model of QM, then your on.

    Wow, Jon! Why aren't you a physicist? No marshmallows for you today! I'll definitely have to have someone tape this for me. Congratulations!

    Eh, I'd rather be a broke actor then a broke physicist. Besides, you get more chicks when your an actor... ;) (you can now throw your marshmellows)

    As Jon's "unofficial official publicist"...should we try and get together someplace and watch "Star Trek IV" to watch for our favorite mullet? I'll even post something about it on TFN news. Imagine a SW fan site promoting a airing of a Star Trek movie? They'll have my badge for this! :D

    BTW, Star Trek IV is my favorite (maybe tied with Star Trek II) in the series. I worked at Sea World for 5 years, so...

    I was at the comics2film DCG forums and my friend their suggested this:
    BTW, Jon - I've been pimping your show to folks. Want me to start asking them to call in to AMC and ask to have you back on more shows once it airs?

    What a great idea! So, any one who wants to do this, I would apreciate it. I couldn't find their phone #, so you could also email them at info@amctv.com . After Tuesday, try to get as many people to email and call AMC asking that I should be featured on other stuff!

    It's a good thing my dad is a Trek fan, and everyone in my family enjoys that film. That way I don't have to bug everyone to death to let me watch it. :D
