Every person is in search of something, whether it is glasses, car keys, a library book. Searching for something can be applied for such simple items as these, or for something much grander, elusive, possible or impossible.
This leads to a television show narrated by Leonard Nimoy, “In Search of….” where Nimoy (with his recognizable voice) leads the viewers through history.
"Before we unlock the future we must find the keys to the past. I am Leonard Nimoy. Join me and open the door to the Ancient Mysteries beginning now.
Then he shares the histories of Pompeii, the Pyramids, Camelot, Astrology, the Vikings, Atlantis, Macchu Picchu, Blood and honor at the first Olympics, Blood and treasure in Peru...the list is long and engaging.
What amazed me is, of course the list of fascinating events and place, but also Leonard Nimor himself. Where does an actor go or what does he do after being known for a SyFy show that establishes a genre new to viewers?
Nimoy did act on stage successfully and in various television shows, but it is his voice, so recognizable and enigmatic. Just with his voice, viewers are grabbed to watch long (sometimes) episodes about the mysteries that captured others, including myself.
Live long and prosper!
