Unfortunately, I read now that he's passed away. I would have been upset about this regardless, I think he's a fantastic actor; that said, I feel I now have an even deeper appreciation due to his portrayal of Spock. I had always thought the first series was much more of a light-hearted affair (like Lost in Space) than I've actually found it to be. Nemoy brought some serious acting ability to that show, and some of the subject matter they covered in just the first handful of episodes was pretty deep and intense.
I'm committing now to watch through not only all of Star Trek's Original Series, but the rest of the franchise as well from beginning to reboot. It's the least I can do to honor a great actor, and a great contributor to my favorite genre - Science Fiction.
You will be missed; I hope you'll live long and prosper somewhere better than here.

The 66% Denying climate change. The 49% denying evolution. The 57% supporting the utter destruction of everything this nation was founded to represent..... Hell, as far as I'm concerned anyone who voted "not sure" on those questions is no better. At least the deniers have the balls to be vocally stupid.
