Perhaps this has been discussed before, but indulge my curiousity........
Opinions on the best celebrity head appearance?

I personally don't think it gets much better than Leonard Nimoy from the first show. First he talks of sharing his wisdom with those who seek it and a life of quiet dignity...... next thing you know he's eating fish food.

Also, has Pauly Shore been the only "celebrity" (obviously I use the loosest definition of the meaning celebrity here) to appear without his head in a jar and with his real body?

Well, a few "full-bodied" famous people have appeared in scenes set back in the 20th Century--for example, Anthology Of Interest I and Roswell That Ends Well...and Shatner and company wore prosthetic pork pockets throughout part of Where No Fan Has Gone Before.

I'd have to pick Nixon. He thought we wouldn't have him to kick around anymore...

The best was when most of the Star Trek stars were in Where No Fan Has Gone Before

Nixon's always good, but I think my favourite head-in-a-jar appearance was by Pamela Anderson.

Scruffy: "Second."

And don't forget Leonardo DiCrapio in "A Flight To Remember." Just thinking about that scene makes me giggle. Just like John DiMaggio on the DVD.

More serious: Nixon is the best head-in-jar. One of the best characters in the entire show. But the TOS crew in "Where No Fan Has Gone before" takes second place with equal ease.

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!

Nixon is the best.  Honorable mentions go to Leo (*SMASH*), George Michaels (Please pick me up, before you go go), Leonard Nimoy (I don't do that any more), Hanson (*SMASH*), and Jonathan Frakes (Yes!  Front row!).

Seeing Hanson get smashed was great.

My all time favorite was Bill Clinton, talking to Leela: "Hey baby, technically, nothing I do can be classified as sex any more" (or something like that).

Also, George Foreman gets an honorable mention ( . . . crud, I can't decide which line I want to put here, "The fat drains off the grill and directly into my mouth," or "as a disembodied head living in a jar, I envy the dead.")

hmmmm, no one digs Beck, huh? Well, I wouldn't classify him as the best celebrity head appearance by any means, but it is very funny that he got his body out of a 93 cent store dumpster (and is pretty happy about it!)

Beck did have a couple good lines - "That's when I wrote Devil's Haircut!  What was that song about again?" and "That song doesn't usually go on for 3 hours, but we were seriously in this thing, and then I forgot how it ended," but I think most people's opinions are clouded by a dislike of the episode as a whole.

I actually think Beck was one of the best celebrity appearances so far, but that's probably because I didn't knew him beforehand. The lines was funny, the music good and the ending amazing. Only thing I have to put on that episode was that it went a little against character for Amy and Leela.

I know it's already been done in "Time Keeps On Slipping", but it would be nice to see Earth challenged in a soccer match, and the stakes are the freedom of both sides. Nobody on Earth know anything about soccer, it hasn't been played centuries (thin "Take Me Out To The Holosuite" ), and they go to the head museum to seek advice from famous soccer players, like Zidane, Pelé, Maradona, Schmeichel, van Basten etc.

Don't you mean 'football match'? Seriously, I'm an american, but I call it by its real name. i don't pay attention to it much, though.

Yep, I do mean football.

And I still think it would make a good idea. To make it more accesible to American viewers you could substitute football for icehockey or something. Just the idea of a world wide teamsport that are vastly popular in our days and have disappeared by the year 3000.

Hmm, maybe I should head over to the "Episode ideas" thread.

We Americans are so backwards. We like fooball better than football (soccer) and prefer customary over the metric system. And we prefer pop music over euro. I think we're in a phase of isolationism!

the idea of the soccer match would be great, but just for fans outside US (who anyway accepted and enjoyed also blernsball)
btw, just think that in the future "blernsball" replaced baseball, then imagine what could be happened to soccer?!? wow!!  big grin

Yeah, how would "jazzed up" soccer look? Hopefully it would also involve a giant tarantula in some way.

ehehehe... to play it you have to kick a very heavy or explosive ball (maybe when it explodes many other smaller balls appear like in an easter egg); the ball can be suddenly deviated by "robotic things" that randomly appear over the grass; the grass is slippery in some points and sticky in others; players can use hands to destroy or hide ball when approaches to goal dangerously; if they let the ball go down into an hole at the center of the field, then multiple balls appear on the field (like for the Blernsball!); goalkeepers are tied with chains...
and things so on...   big grin   laff

And if a referee made a wrong decision he would be fired...out of a canon...into the sun.
