This show looks good. Too bad we can't see it over here. Maybe You Tube will show it. They're up on the world.

Thanks for reminding me, KJ--I picked up a copy of Men's Vogue (!!!!) yesterday, because Viggo Mortensen was on the cover and my old Army buddy (sorry, I just love saying that) Brenda is crazymad for Viggo. There were plenty of stupid photos of him wearing a coat, having pants on etc. *yawn* and quotes about Lord of the Rings and Eastern Promises, but I found not one mention of Good!!!!!!!

He was saying [on this morning] that he had watched a preview showing with Emma the day before and she thinks it is the saddest thing he has ever done. Isn't it strange though? all of those, what you would consider Funny People, how sad many of them are.

I have watched Steptoe and Son for years, it was my late fathers favourite show on TV, I would have never even thought that Harry H Corbet was one of the best actors in this country at the time, apparantly S+S was so popular he gave up his ambitions for a steady job. I think I may need tissues [Many] for this, you should see me at the end of most episodes of Cold Case. [Where's that crying Emoticon when you need it?]

:bawl There you are, Heather! Well, as the expression says, "be careful what you wish for".
We keep thinking it'd be nice for Jason Isaacs to get the huge lead role in a massive commercial success--but look at poor Daniel Radcliffe, hiring bodyguards so he can leave his home . . .

I so agree Hilary. Look at Britney Spears, anyone like to step into her shoes for a day? No me neither!
