It's too bad the Ian Somerhalder/Joseph Morgan action just seems to be one big tease.  I might actually tune in to this thing if they pursued this as a storyline.

When are these shows going to get the memo that what their fanbase really involves is ladies (and no doubt some gentlemen) who pant at the thought of some serious boy-on-boy action??

But no point lacerating myself further about the cluelessness of the suits in H'wood...

Did she get much screen time?  I don't recall the character at all.  Of course it was, what, seven years ago that I had the one viewing of the thing...

and of course, one of the images chosen for the story isn't Angelique at all, but Lara Parker portraying Catherine Harridge Collins.

Please remind me who Jenna Dewan played in the WB pilot?

Judah Zachery was supposed to have had a coven.  I think it met in Bedford Maine.  I remember Julia pronounced coven with a long o like the word "cove" with an n attached.

During the Gerard storyline in 1840 there was talk of Judah's coven being revived.  The lawyer character played by Humbert was supposed to be a surviving descendant member of the original Bradford coven, I believe.

It was kind of amusing how every time a lawyer appeared on DS, he seemingly turned out to be a devil-worshipper of some kind or other...

The original concept for Angelique was that she had learned some herbal lore and spellcraft, presumably from her mother; she was a type of what today would be called a Hedge Witch, solitary apart from any family members who might have instructed her.  It wasn't until she showed up in 1968 that we began to get all the frou-frou about the Devil, presumably as a result of ROSEMARY'S BABY.

Another emblematic line from Julia:  "I no longer know what is right and what is wrong.  I only know what is necessary."

I thought Karlen took the acting award in this episode.  He made the situation feel very real.

Parker was always so good at [spoiler]those climactic vampire bites--wonder if she had been to see some of the Hammer horror films of the period; definitely a touch reminiscent of those.[/spoiler]

This is an example of an episode which features both Grayson and Parker, but Parker does the voice-over.

For those who need it, the episode can be viewed here:

I LUV Grayson's chic grey suit... exquisite... did she wear it in any other episode?

"I don't know if I can go through with this ... madness."  I wonder sometimes if cast members quoted that line at one another sometimes in rehearsal.

I remember reading somewhere (it was around 15 years ago at least) that Jack Sullivan and Sean Dhu Sullivan were the same individual.  The Sixties was a time of revival of interest in the "Celtic Twilight" movement and the name change may have reflected that, if this is correct information.

Lara Parker's 1968 Vampilique look always makes me think of Dusty Springfield, particularly in the early weeks when she's allowed to have some costume changes.  The black gown with the lace collar was originally worn by Laura Collins in early 1967.

Glad to have been of help, Marge.

Yeah, pretty limp stew.  I can imagine Alex going through the motions and at the end of the day thinking, "you really need to find a better way of spending your time, girl."

and I'm a huge fan of the 1968 storyline.  But this...

The writing for Angelique is so awful, too.  IMO the audience should always feel an air of menace or potential threat when Angelique is onscreen. Here she sounds like a petulant parlor-maid.  Not good.

I saw the news about the renewal and smiled, then heard that only 13 episodes were ordered for the first season, and my smile faded.

I wouldn't be surprised though if shorter seasons become the norm.  It may be a strategy for the survival of drama (and other) series on television in today's market.

I was really surpised years ago when I got hold of an ADDAMS FAMILY episode guide (from the classic 1964-66 series) and saw that there were something like 30 episodes per season.  Then a few years later I was going through a Peter Gunn episode guide and learned that in 1958-59, around 36 episodes was "a season."

Times have certainly changed!  Aren't you glad!  [hall_rolleyes]

(and I'll just comment that watching Sleepy Hollow on iTunes on an a la carte basis is WAY preferable to watching a "free" broadcast laden with pop-ups, banners, studio logos, and INCESSANT commercial "breaks".

There's been so much coverage of JGL and the Don Jon film in the past week or two.  Last night I was on IMDB and noticed with amusement that there were ads for the movie all over the site, including a big splashy banner that informed us "it's JGL takes over IMDB day!"

Our little boy is all grown up... it seems as if he has the potential to become the next Johnny Depp.

A lot of it seems to be on Youtube.  I just watched the first 20 minutes of the pilot; good trashy Eighties fun.  I think this one went out of production because one of the lead actors was killed suddenly in a motorcycle accident?

I watched the first episode of Season 2 of Elementary mainly because a close friend insisted that she thought I would adore it.  Fans of classic Dr. Who will want to note that Jon Pertwee's son Sean Pertwee has a very juicy role as an Inspector Lestrade on the skids.

Besides Jonny Lee Miller (whose Sherlock is so different from his Roger Collins, it really underscores JLM's chameleon-like powers as an actor), the only other element that made me think of one version of DS was Lucy Liu's performance as Dr. Watson, a retired surgeon who is now sort of a psychiatrist working with addicts.  The way the role is conceived made me think of the potential way that the Julia character could have been played in the aborted WB DS in 2004... as portrayed by Kelly Hu.

That's a wonderful image of Eva Green posted on today's slideshow.  The lipstick (although it is very similar to Joan Bennett's trademark look) makes me think of Bette Davis and the red dress makes me think of Bette's infamous work in the 1930s classic JEZEBEL.

I know it's probably just a flaw in something or other but I could swear it looks as if there are tiny cracks on Angie's face in this image...
