I am developing the biggest crush on Martin Landeau as Rollin Hand.

I ask you – is that so wrong?

I am the biggest fan of the Big Bang Theory.

Makes me miss college.

The Men of Austen

Filed under: Entertainment — lmwalker @ 1:41 am

The predictable choice is in the lead, but I voted for Frederick Wentworth.

I don’t mind Rupert Penry-Jones in the role, but I much prefer Bryan Marshall. This preference is helped along by the fact that I very much appreciate that the 1971 version didn’t feel a need to Bronte-ize the ending. (Stupid Americanized 21st century melodrama.)

For what it’s worth, George Knightley would have been my second choice, followed then by Fitzwilliam Darcy, Henry Tilney and Edward Ferrars. Frankly, Edmund Bertram holds absolutely no attraction for me. And I don’t waste my time with the underlings. (Sorry, Janice. I know you carry a torch for Henry Crawford. And thanks for the link!)

The Shiny Guy Always Worries

This is the best distillation of Star Wars I have ever, ever heard. Or, as Toly Delm aptly puts it, “that was more coherent and with better dialogue than Episode III.”

I also really enjoyed the review of the review.

7-Eleven has resigned itself to the inevitable and is acknowledging itself as the Kiwk-E Mart.

There are twelve of them.

My long blog absence has been decimated by . . . William Shakespeare!

I just saved myself $209.30 (or 70%)!
