    I know I’m the minority, but as a non-Trekkie, Brent will always be the ne’er-do-well bumpkin often running into trouble with the law on Night Court to me.

  • May 6, 2012 at 11:17 pm

    He seems like a pretty decent guy, I’m off to check out.. what was it called again?

    Oh yeah.. FRESH HELL πŸ™‚

    Mike, how did you get this interview? Data was my favorite character next to Picard. Great stuff.

    You lucky son of a…! Good interview!

  • May 6, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    That was pretty sweet. He seems like a real down to earth guy; although I never knew he was a musician. Might have to check that album out.

    Holy crap on a crutch this is AWESOME! Brent Spiner has always been one of my favorite actors. And who knew that he was also an amazing singer? I just watched the first episode of his webshow. Fan-f**king-tastic. I can’t wait to see where he goes with this.

    I’m gonna be throwing his link all over the internet. These sorts of webshows need to be watched. So much more entertaining than our modern day mainstream media.

    Thank you Brent! And thank you Mike for alerting me to the existence of this show!

    Why does Mike come off like more of a star than Brent?

  • TheTempleKnight

    May 7, 2012 at 1:54 am


    Epic win, Mike. Although, Spiner comes off as a Charlie Sheen type. Was Spiner Charlie Sheen before Charlie Sheen was Charlie Sheen? lol

    So glad you got this interview. I hadn’t heard of his new series and I just watched all 10 of the current episodes. They’re freaking hilarious, especially episode 2-2. I almost died laughing. If you have 10 minutes, just go watch that one. Seriously, you won’t regret it.

    What’s Mr. Spiner’s web-series called again?

  • DrJekyll

    May 7, 2012 at 6:34 am

    the incident lol he did the pact
    he sounds… confused … *cough*mkultra*cough*

  • May 7, 2012 at 7:52 am

    Wow Brent Spiner. You’re so lucky Mike.

  • J.R. Blake

    Mike, you did an awesome job with this interview. The Data-centric episodes were always my favorite.

    he was awsome in his short clip on big bang theory

  • May 7, 2012 at 10:00 am

    Holy Crap Brent Spiner!!! Never knew he was influenced by so many comedians.
    Watched first season of Fresh Hell. How can you watch the intro and not think “Mr. Bean”?
    Going to watch 2nd season later on. Great stuff!
    Btw. I think Picard is boring. No chance against Kirk. (I’m talking roles, not actors)

    Mike is drinking Pepsi and not coke.
    How am i not surprised?

  • Stylix

    May 7, 2012 at 10:51 am

    That’s pretty awesome. Data was my favorite character from Next Gen hands down. I haven’t much of Spiner’s other work, but I’ll definitely check out his web series. I also had no idea he was a musician. Sounds like hes got a lot of talent outside of just acting.

  • Bronson

    May 7, 2012 at 10:53 am

    I just realised something…. Mike’s laugh reminds me of Stan Laurel’s laugh! That’s why it’s so hilarious!

  • May 7, 2012 at 10:57 am

    Very cool Mike! I’m checkin’ out Fresh Hell now!

  • Doogrisa

    May 7, 2012 at 11:02 am

    @v3stman Who gives a shit what Mike likes to drink. Him liking Pepsi dosnt make him a lesser man.

  • May 7, 2012 at 11:26 am

    I drink both coke and pepsi.. Speaking of that, I want to get a copy of Pepsi Invaders / Coke Wins for Atari..

    Anyway, as for this interview, I just want to say that Brent Spiner could not have been a nicer more personable guy. He talked to me for a good 10-15 minutes before this about his CD “Ol’ Yellow Eyes Is Back”, which I had him autograph. He’s naturally funny, and it was an honor to talk to him.

    May 7, 2012 at 12:24 pm

    @thetempleknight … dumbass he’s not a ” charlie sheen ” type he’s just living through the same hell because they both commited the ” incident ” and the reason why he seems so confused and his choice of word is so vague, it’s all related..
    they’re speaking in metaphor about how they lost control over their lives and they must be fkn pissed everytime someone just thinks they’re fucked up

  • DrJekyll

    May 7, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    the incident or ” selling his soul for fame ”
    the pact of hollywood
    good ol’ ”Rainman” at work.

    May 7, 2012 at 3:27 pm

    Ah, Sheldon Cooper’s current nemesis, and the guy who peed on his wife’s desk in Law and Order.

    was the incident “Master of Disguise”? i know i had a hard time looking at Brent after that!

    Wonderful actor. Thank you Mike for this interview !

    Mike…How dare you talk to this man after THE INCIDENT!!!!

  • Endless Mike

    May 7, 2012 at 8:10 pm

    Gee wiz! Somehow I have a strong desire to watch something with hell now.. Just like in ’86, couldn’t stop drinking Pepsi for weeks after seeing some Stallone flick.

    May 7, 2012 at 8:11 pm

    Mike you rock. I wish you had been moderating the TNG panel instead of those idiots that didn’t know the first thing about TNG!

  • May 7, 2012 at 8:19 pm

    Excellent interview Mike. I would have been star-struck. I’m going to check out fresh hell right now! I always love seeing actors, that are generally famous for a singular role, get out of their element.

  • A GaMiNg BrOnY

    May 7, 2012 at 8:46 pm

    Yup, Mike, just keep nodding your head

  • stinger2578

    May 7, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    I’m starting to get a feeling “the incident’ is something inspired by what happened on stage with Michael Richards. I bet he’s still having difficulty with the outcome from that. As far as Fresh Hell – there’s a YouTube channel with the episodes and I’ve enjoyed the ones I’ve seen so far and had no hesitation hitting subscribe πŸ™‚

  • culwin

    May 8, 2012 at 12:54 am

    Awesome, Mike!!

  • May 8, 2012 at 8:13 am

    @stinger2578 I’m starting to get the same idea. It had to have been based off of something like. The show has a Curb your Enthusiasm kind of feel to it. It started off slow but it really grew on me!

  • May 8, 2012 at 8:21 am

    Cool interview Mike, I don’t think I’ve ever seen you look so serious; the video image of you two looking at each other looks like you both decided to do data at the same time hehe.

    Can’t hate on the owner, I wish I had been smart enough to buy big-business urls back in ’95.

    You should have asked him how many people have asked him to recite that code from Star Trek: The Next Generation.

    Man who would have thought that Data, the blank emotionless character on star trek, actually had the greatest and most entertaining personality that rivals Patrick Stewart’s! Why didn’t he get a different role, or was no one else good enough to make a boring character like data, actually entertaining. Minus the odd numbered movies, his scenes are funny, but the plot is so forced and boring.

    Awesome interview. Great job Mike

    DrJekryll: I wouldn’t be suprised if theres was an “All Seeing Eye” in his webshow.

  • Ben_from_G-town

    May 18, 2012 at 4:58 am

    Fun interview! He’s even more eccentric and odd that Data himself! But funny. I’ll have to check out this show. I never knew about the Laurel and Hardy stuff, either. I’m surprised they didn’t do a Holodeck episode around that. Interesting.

  • waltsoph3

    May 19, 2012 at 2:10 pm

    I got to say. Its just awesome you got the honor of being able to interview probably one of the best Star Trek characters in the franchise. Truly awesome and great job Mike. πŸ˜€

    Good call on the subtitles!
    Thank you!!

  • December 4, 2016 at 5:32 am

    It was great seeing him in Independence Day 2, especially since I thought his character was dead and I hope his career is revitalised after that.
