(CNN) – Actor William Shatner wasn't too amused Tuesday by an Internal Revenue Service training video produced with a Star Trek theme.
So I watched that IRS video. I am appalled at the utter waste of US tax dollars.—

The video came to light after legislators on a House Ways and Means subcommittee requested it and another they say resembled the television hit "Gilligan's Island." The IRS says the videos were produced for employee training at a 2010 conference.
Together, the videos cost $60,000 to make, according to Rep. Charles Boustany, R-Louisiana and chairman of the oversight subcommittee.
