Jean-Claude, darling, you're skirting MAJOR dream territory with those conjurations of luscious, soapy, naked Briscoe... sigh.

Unfortunately, the I Dream of Jeannie episode is nothing to get too excited about.  Don appears in a group of 3 other men (but of course shines as the most handsome of the three).  He has a couple of lines but no close-up. The Iron Horse thing sounds interesting--I'd never heard of that one.

I don't remember, but that would certainly make ME recoil in disbelief.

The author of those ... works (I am not sure just what word should be used to denote the things) once described Angelique as having an olive complexion.  That shows he had no idea how the people actually appeared, apart from perhaps Liz, Barnabas, Vicki and anyone else who appeared on the covers.

Heather, I'd never visited that site before.  Hilarious, nay, Hysterical!

theirs just happened to focus on Julia.

Darling, that's like saying a talk by the Dalai Lama "just happened" to focus on Buddhism.

and before you say it, I know, I know... "pot, kettle!"

I think a Cassandra fashion folly would be a HELL of a lot of fun, too (literally!).  Another fan and I tried once to count just how many different wigs Cass sported during her tenure at C'wood.

Thank you, Coinnie dear, for that Divoon photo of my favorite Doctor!

I would love a Quentin fashion spread.  How about a Quentin unclothed spread, too?  *wink*

Pondering quietly the lusciousness of certain "Quentinesque" shots from The Girl in Blue...

What a Divine poll, Darlings!  You all did a splendid job!

Of course one of *my* favorite dresses wasn't included--that electric blue number she wore in her very last scene at Callanwoody... sigh

Still, I loved the selection!  You have proved conclusively that contrary to popular belief, Dr. Julia Hoffman COULD look sharp, snazzy, and chic!

And then, there's that sweater thing from 1967 *slaps hand over brow* let's NOT go there... I am convinced that GH personally torched that thing in the studio back lot one afternoon!

btw I don't think the diVOON grey suit was from GH's personal wardrobe--she favored bright colors and BOLD patterns, and she was an autumn...

As is well known, I'm a fan of the Leviathans story.  Despite the nay-sayers, I continue to maintain that it had some of the best episodes of the series--or at least some of the best scenes.  Frid's performance is tight as a drum, the character of Julia is better used than she had been since '67, they bring back Nicholas Blair, Leviathan Liz actually brings some zest back to a character that had been reduced to a sham of her former glory, etc. etc.

If Mr. Hofstede thinks all this is one of the "dumbest" things in US television history, he ought to take a cruise through the serried ranks of today's "reality" programming.  I hope he did at least mention the Anna Nicole Show.  That terrorized me more than 5 years of DS ever did!

Current Talk '05 I / Re: Are the DVDs Edited?
« on: January 19, 2005, 04:06:03 PM »
Just checking in with another stellar review for Forever Knight.  It is one of the very, VERY few 1990s TV shows I like well enough to have in my tape collection (the other two were She-wolf of London and Poltergeist: the Legacy--I also have some episodes of Babylon 5 and I used to have its sequel, Crusade, but gave those tapes away to another fan).  The first two years were MUCH better than year 3, however, although year 3 introduced a great character--Divia, daughter of Lacroix, played by amazing child actress Kathryn Long.  (Unfortunately she was only in a couple of episodes.)

FK had some really great scripts (and some that were not so great, but that's television) and a wonderful supporting cast of great Canadian actors (it was filmed in Toronto).

As for the DS DVDs, I don't have any of them.  Set 1 of the DVD's I believe began with episode 210 or 211--the "Introduction of Barnabas" storyline.  The DVDs had some bloopers edited out of them because MPI outsourced the prep work to a company that didn't understand that we LIKE having the bloopers on the shows (at least, this is the most plausible story I have heard). Although they keep swearing they are not going to edit future discs, I keep hearing reports of some bit of footage being sliced out.

As somebody else said, I doubt whether the company will release the first 200-odd episodes until after they've gotten to the end of the series.

It's very inspiring to me how long MPI has kept DS in print.  That hard commercial fact alone shows how exceptional our show is!

Luciaphil darling, your writing is SO addictive.  I printed this out and it got me through my evening commute last night.  Thanks dear.

I always took those wanted posters in the Sheriff's office as covering all of Maine, not just C'port.  A trivial detail perhaps...

Your observations on the characters of Liz, Vicki, and Maggie are intriguing.  A lot of what you say is certainly giving me food for thought.  As for Maggie not being good with kids, though, aren't you forgetting the ENDLESS days of "Little Girl!  Little Girl!" *smirk*

Oh boy!  that episode is such fun!  And the Divine Nina Foch is in it, doing her very own impersonation of Helen Lawson!

Excellent news!

Luciaphil's Idle Thoughts '05 / Re: Hold the Mustard -- Episodes 25 & 26
« on: January 18, 2005, 09:32:31 PM »
What wonderful work, as always, Luciaphil!  I definitely think having Art Wallace write all those shows at one big stretch had its pluses and minuses.  You've astutely highlighted both the positive and negative aspects of his writing.

I've never seen Bad Seed; it's been on my list for decades, now.  But David Henesy's performance in these shows makes my blood run cold.  He was an amazingly skilled actor.

I don't recall Curtis having been involved in the original Night Stalker TV series.  He did the movies and that was it.  Or is my memory failing me again?

Don't forget that the "infamous" Roger Davis (aka "RD") also stars!

I've tried to forget, but the scar, the horror of it all, lingers.
