William Shatner Says "There is no doubt... there is life out there" While Launching Yet Another TV Show.

William Shatner Says "There is no doubt... there is life out there" While Launching Yet Another TV Show.

William Shatner apparently has another show in the works that's premiering this fall?! Called William Shatner's "Weird or What?" the show will look at extraordinary events and try to explain them scientifically or logical. What we would like someone to explain is, when does William Shatner sleep? This is the third television show he's premiering this fall! Along with "Aftermath", "Bleep My Dad Says", and now "Weird or What?", The Shat is also still working on "Raw Nerve" while filming a documentary about all of the Star Trek captains called simply "The Captains". One thing that did just cross our minds, maybe The Shat is one of those new-fangled day walking vampires. When we saw him up-close at Vegas Khhaaan, he was awfully sparkly.

Maybe we should clarify here, "Weird or What?" has been on in the States since April of this year on the Discovery Channel. The show is actually premiering this Wednesday on the Canadian version of the History Channel. We just didn't mention it because the first paragraph had such a good effect. Moving on...

During an interview with the Times Colonist (Victoria & Vancouver Island News Since 1858), The Shat gave us his intergalactic insight into whether or not aliens exist; "There is no doubt that there is life out there; the mathematics of it lead you to that absolute conclusion," Shatner says. "In my mind, there is no doubt that the universe teems -- teems! -- with life in all its forms. But why they would come visit here and not let themselves be known to everybody is beyond my sense of logic."

If anyone would know, it would be the captain of the flippin' Enterprise. He continues, "Why would you fly the years or millenniums [it would take] to [get here]?Why wouldn't they just land and say, 'Here we are, we're tired, got any ice cream?'"

In the second episode of "Weird or What?", the show focuses on a small Texas town where witnesses claim they saw U.S. air-force planes in hot pursuit of UFOs. Shatner says the show "explains the unexplainable." He adds "Everything that takes place is weird, whether it's a social transaction or physical event -- anything that we perceive is, in its final analysis, weird, because there are ramifications that we don't even know. The possibilities that are suggested in quantum physics tell us that everything we are looking at may not in fact be there . . . so that the underlying nature of 'being' is weird ... ."

The Shatner Empire expands this Wednesday at 8pm on History (Canada)
