QUOTE: The results are in and it seems we, as a site, have decided Sir Guy of Gisborne (aka Richard Armitage) is the hunkiest Big Bad! The blue blood of noble Sir Guy of Gisborne finally beat the bloodrinking Sheriff of Area 5, Eric Nortman. Poetic.
Congratulations Mr Armitage!
For those interested in both Arthurian legends and Tolkien - a comparison study:
Stumbled upon the above while searching for the recent theonering.com report about a white mare named Claire that was purchased by the hobbit production company. She's pure white - Above study discusses white horses described in Camelot andLord of the Rings. Amazingly topical touchstone intersection for those watching the latest Camelot update as well as progress reports on The Hobbit movie.
Second viewing of Spooks S9 (ep 1) for me - first time for my love. the team is attending Ros‘s funeral. Afterwards, outside the church, Harry pulls Ruth aside and proproses marriage to her. She refuses saying in effect “how would it work? The two of us in a cottage? What would we talk to the neighbors about when they visit?
Hubby said “that’s right - they couldn’t talk about their work.” Later he added “Harry’s feelings for her might cloud his judgement in a crisis.”
He quietly watched from then on, until the high tech weapon under the Houses of Parliament was released. Then he commented “that will be the way future wars are fought, ya know - with electro-magnetic technology.”
Only other reaction to ep 1 was when Vaughn was leaving and said “good to see you again John.” Hubby repeated “John.” Then he asked “shall we watch the next episode?” I told him it was up to him and he expressed much curiosity about Vaughn - we started ep 2 after a short break.
(Ep 2) The oil tycoon‘s evil plan is revealed. What really surprised me was how contemplative hubby became over that character. He asked - “how old do you think he looks?” I said “about 60-65” which prompted him to explain his interest. “Why would someone that age care so much about the political landscape in a foreign country to the point he’d plan a massacre?” My answer was the suggestion that many business owners become very protective of their company, and start to think of it almost as a person. Maybe the man’s motive was to protect his life’s work for his children or grandchildren. The hubster said “that’s plausible - that’s why I asked you.”
After gunfire was sprayed in the elevator, the camera showed Beth’s blood-spattered face with wide-open eyes - DH gasped. He was visibly relieved when Lucas approached and Beth spoke to him. Afterwards we were both extremely puzzled why Beth kept one of the wounded mens’ cell phone. I’d somehow missed that entire sequence of events first time around.
At some point during ep 2, Mr Ricrar remarked about RA - “his serious face is the most serious I've ever seen.” :)
The only other observations were during the scene when Harry offered his resignation to the Home Sec’y - hubster said “bet the Home Sec will return the envelope to him before the episode ends.” As the two men discussed the fact the billionaire oil man was crucial to the country since the BP disaster, DH made a sound of appreciation for the cutting-edge geo-political topic's inclusion in a TV program aired over 6mos previous.
His very last words on the first two episodes of Spooks9 were “hopefully we’ll learn next week why the other man called him John.”
Long distance TOC...*winks at collectors* ;)
My result was blue...boohoohoo...I love blue - can't stay away from it...primary reason is because my significant other's eyes are blue, and other family members as well. Living room carpet is dusty blue...dress I've recently purchased to wear to my niece's upcoming wedding is sapphire blue. Too bad it wasn't orange or mustard...haha...not a problem whatsoever to stay away from those two colors.
Thx to Musa: Anne Rice again mentions RA as her choice for vampire Lestat. Quote has to be in blood red...
My dreamcast for a Vampire Chronicles will never "happen." But here it is, happening now on this page: Richard Armitage as Lestat; Matt Bomer as Louis; Eva Green as Gabrielle; Matthew MacFadyen as Marius; Jeremy Irons as David Talbot; directed by Kenneth Branagh. (Thinking about the others).
