It was reported earlier today that actor Leonard Nimoy’s passed away at the age of 83. Nimoy, of course, was most famous in the role of Mr. Spock on “Star Trek” and its various spinoffs.
I’ve been a “Star Trek” fan for pretty much my whole life, having watched reruns of the original series as a kid. I also enjoyed watching on Nickelodeon reruns of the 70s animated series, which had Nimoy voice Spock, along with the original series’ other actors do their own voices:
Nimoy wasn’t above comedy, as seen in his cameo on “The Simpsons”:
Another show I watched with my family as a kid was “In Search Of…,” a show about the paranormal that Nimoy hosted.
The New York Times has a thorough obituary on the life of Nimoy.
