Have you ever been in the shower and found yourself wondering, what DID William Shatner do in the 1970s? Between the cancellation of Star Trek in 1969 and Star Trek: The Motion Picture in 1979, he must have done something, but what? Well listeners, we're here for you.

A former priest who had a crisis of faith (Shatner), is among a small group aboard a plane trapped in mid-air over the Atlantic, terrorized by unexpected demonic passengers, in the made-for-television movie The Horror at 37,000 Feet (1973). A traumatic childhood incident leads Matt Stone (Shatner) to a life as a gigolo conman, with a taste for stylish threads, wealthy women, and murder in Impulse (1974)! A man devoted to protecting his family and breaking them free of a devilish curse (Shatner), becomes a pawn of Satan, turned against his brother in The Devil's Rain (1975)! And then from there, a heroic, horseback-riding veterinarian (Shatner) attempts to stop a massive colony of tarantulas from transforming a small Arizona town into the Kingdom of the Spiders (1977)!
