Post Something I felt like sharing
Yo:

So in reviewing the season premiere of Heroes (A show I like, but do not love) TV critic Adam Buckman offers this penitrating swab:

Quote:
This show, which was once so thrilling and fun, has become full of itself, its characters spouting crazy nonsense. Here's one I wish someone would translate for me: "There's a divinity that shapes our ends--rough hew them how we will," spouts the enigmatic industrialist Linderman played by Malcolm McDowell, who should win an Emmy for keeping a straight face while reciting these lines.


I hear ya, I can't tell you how many times John Gielgud gaffed while reciting those awful, banal lines from that shameless hack.

Just saying, if I was Buckman's editor, I would have fired him on the spot.

And then unseem'd him from knaves to chops. :D

Still Here,

Patrick

that's funny, though I kind of despise 'Speare and all of his works (not that I've read ALL of 'em). he's not a hack by any means, he's just a piss poor writer


>_>

Don't ask me. It's Whedonist's expression of choice, not mine.

No really, I have no idea.

Be that as it may in addition just let me add- Jin?

Greetings,

GNOMES!

I loved that series.

I have all the books, read them to my kids.
My son thinks the trolls are orangutans (He's three, cut him some slack)

I remain, as always,
Mad-Hamlet

The very image of that puts a massive smile on my face.

You are one cool dad.

Still Here,
