Brown Bag Wine Tasting: William Shatner interviews Misha Collins
When the show started, Shatner traveled around doing short-segment interviews with regular people asking them about their job details, then he’d blind pour each of them some sort of wine and get the person to describe the wine quality in the terms common to the individual’s job. It was hilarious.
As the show’s still-cult-status success has increased the interviews have become more and more about celebrities.
(And I mean, look, when it comes down to it there is only one reason this is disappointing. When it was still everyday folks I could still fantasize about someday being an interview guest on Brown Bag Wine Tasting sitting across from Shatner for no good reason except that I’m an everyday folk too, getting asked to describe wine in terms that brought together commercial fishing, camel training, philosophy, Sci-Fi, and wine all at once. Generally speaking, I don’t give 2 bits for being on TV. It’s fine for other people. It’s just not my thing. But the idea of meeting Shatner and then talking wine. Oh geez… Anyway, I digress.)
I’ve posted on Twitter about my love for the show. Today, the folks at Brown Bag were kind enough to send me the embed code for the current interview that is so up my alley it’s ridiculous — seriously, guys, thanks for paying attention.
Misha Collins, of Supernatural fame, appears on the show most primarily to discuss his charity work.
The idea of Shatner interviewing Collins is hilarious largely because on Twitter Collins and Shatner act as nemeses to each other. You can see why — each massively famous for Sci-fi shows with a huge fan base, but of two different generations, one indebted to the other… (Push me and I’ll back Shatner everytime…)
Anyway, if you haven’t checked out Brown Bag Wine Tasting before, give it a look. Here’s the link to the show in general. http://www.ora.tv/brownbagwinetasting
And here’s the current episode. My favorite part is when they describe the wine. It’s deliciously absurd.
