As a life long Trekkie (yes I say Trekkie, don’t make a thing out of it) I have to say that Data has always been a character I loved. Yes he has his goofy and misguided moments in the films that in some cases are so bad that I have to turn away and cringe. BUT Brent Spiner is some one I’ve always admired.
The latest episode of The Nerdist Podcast has the crew interviewing him at a Comic Book Convention in Arizona live on stage and it goes brilliantly. The way Matt Mira brings up that Data is fully functioning could be one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard.
