Richard Armitage: Audience Member's Detailed LLL Review(see link) + Interview with Israeli Mag(see comment) + Daniel Miller ep 3 Berlin Station


NEWS: An RA fan translated the interview in recent edition of an Israeli magazine.  According to her translation he said he has accomplished his goals living in the USA and plans to move back to UK in 2017.  He added he's too far from family and friends. 

After the following interview for Berlin Station, I do believe RA and his co-star became somewhat confused as far as why a real life whistleblower(WikiLeaks) chose to expose the Liberal candidate's campaign emails.  IMO, the election results demonstrated why that happened.  It is necessary to "Drain the Swamp"

Richard Armitage:Love,Love,Love on Forbes Best Theater 2016 List + Berlin Station on Crave On Line 2016 Best TV Drama List + Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays to Everyone + Brain on Fire Mention in Limerick Leader(see link)

REVIEW: Love,Love,Love on Forbes Best Theater 2016 List
Love, Love, Love
What could be better than Mike Bartlett's Cock? His Love, of course. The cracking playwright delivers another sharp, smart, silly chunk of theater with this ode to the 60's and all their fallout. Anyone who’s ever been labeled a Baby Boomer, or the child thereof, will find much to laugh (and possibly cry) about. Old ideas stay fresh as we see patterns play out amongst a family full of great intentions and awful consequences. Richard Armitage and Zoe Kazan in particular delivered fantastic performances as an idealistic dad gone to pot and his mostly-ignored daughter. [At Roundabout

Long, thoughtful Christmas message this year. Couple excerpts:

                                               Happy Christmas everyone. 
By Jillian Dale..."Season 1 of Berlin Station culminates with theBerlin Station crew piecing together evidence that will illuminate Langley’s role in the Iosava rendition. Meanwhile, Hector takes a new approach to atoning for bad behavior. As the episode draws to a close, the truth comes into focus and the Shaw mantle is passed. StarsRichard Armitage, Richard Jenkins, Michelle Forbes, Rhys Ifans, Leland Orser and Tamlyn Tomita. Directed by Joshua Marston. (TV-MA) Airdate: Sunday, December 18 at 9pm/8C onEPIX."

Richard comments from TV Tango interview: "Richard Armitrage: It was the thing that initially attracted me to this script and to this story. With this character in particular, I really felt like we were going to explore a human being who had flaws, and we were taking him into an environment where he was going to be challenged and stretched in a kind of post-technology society whereby the security services can't rely on those things anymore and they have to answer the game and face their opponent as human beings and seeing how those flaws affect what it is they do. So it was far less action-based and much more an intellectual game, which really fascinated me."

That's better...thanks!
Don't be concerned folks--current hijinks in WashDC is merely the entrenched establishment being replaced with the duly elected POTUS by "We the people". The high drama makes it vividly clear why it was necessary for we the people to drain the swamp. That's exactly what is happening--the corrupt current entities are finding it difficult to forfeit political power.  That's why we have the Constitution.
