Robin Hood 3.07: Too Hot To Handle )

I've been devouring Naomi Novik's Temeraire series (I am very nearly finished with Victory of Eagles; expect a massively incoherently joyful post) and tinkering about over at [community profile] age_of_sail, and the whole giddy experience culminated in a BURNING DESIRE to submerge myself in Master & Commander. I haven't seen the film for a few years, and I've only read the first book in the series, but I remember loving them both rather a lot. JACK AND STEPHEN, THEY ARE MORE MARRIED THAN ANYONE EVER. And the DVD was on offer in HMV! My planets are aligned and all that jazz. We watched it last night and it was just as fantastic as I remembered, with the added bonus that being a few years older makes Max "grows up to be Octavian!" Pirkis EVEN MORE ADORABLE as Blakeney. It defies the intellect, how adorable this boy is. Look at his little faaaace! Also, yay Bryan Dick!

How are you? ♥

Quantum of Solace - You should click even if you don't want to be spoiled, because there be delicious picture of Gemma Arterton! Scroll past the text! )

Also, my Tess DVD came the other week, and the making of is called "Angels and Demons". Ohh, Beeb, your publicity department must be such a cool and edgy place to work. BUT it is lovely, and the actors' responses to the characters were interesting (I love how everyone admits the twattery of Angel and how they tried to make him more sympathetic. CAST PRETTY: JOB DONE). I will have to cap it at some point because the light does strangely glorious things to Eddie's hair.
Merlin 1.07: The Gates of Avalon )
SIDE-NOTE: [ profile] templa_otmena and I are convinced that if Arthur ever takes off his shirt it will actually cause our heads to explode. It took me a good few episodes to realise that Bradley James' chest actuallly *was* that broad, and not just armour padding designed to symbolically sugegst that Arthur is just a young man with too many responsibilties or something. HE IS ACTUALLY JUST THAT BUILT. We only ever get the glimpses through the Open-Necked Shirts Of Wonder, so if we ever saw it all at once I don't know what would happen. I think my TV might combust. Also, Bradley James was in the audience on Strictly Come Dancing last night! Hee!


AND FINALLY, since Merlin has awakened a thirst in me for all versions of this legend, what should I be reading/watching/Googling furiously? I've already downloaded Excalibur!

How are you? ♥
