I won't give any of the details but she was iced today. How they "will handle it" who knows but this gets a 'wow.' Well we still don't know about the Paks and what their contributions were to hiding him away and perhaps giving him up? Losing the chopper was never really explained either. Most realistic scene was forward Chapman base, Afg. That's how it happened. The MD who was going to turn on OBL blows the contact group up instead (and himself). Terrible incident I think of the two women occasionally and their great loss. The Gambler Goodfella Nixon You can talk all you want about the different acccents but get real, some are much better than others. If a person can't possibly be understood by most strong non-King's English speakers they, probably aren't very effective. The people who broadcast to the world on the BBC are quite understandable you don't have to hang on every word. The best GB accent I've heard is George Sanders in "Lloyds of London." He sounded great. Michael: after putting down the fat guy (who was he) in the meeting room, firing him when he finally spoke up for himself after min's of abuse. Michael has a problem. Not to recognize it doesn't say much for those who don't and most of the normal character do. I have mixed feelings about the guy. But the man is ill. * This Steffy plotline with the nephew coming to live with her isn't working. * What is it with all the scruffy beards. Don't like it. * The young waiter (looks gay)just moving in with the older woman looks kind of ridiculous. Kind of interesting to think that this young burgeoning star was now on the way to the enlistment office for a few years in the Army. Probably Ford did too though I'm not sure about him. Richard had a lot of lean years trying to break in to an upper-status of show biz. But he had many years to close it out with consistent success. Interesting he was living in France and apparently he wasn't as healthy as he always seem to look. He would have walked through the door -which was what he did- and that would be that. He would Certainly be handled much differently and no service commitment which would have put heavy concentration into his earliest years. He still has the best Christmas album and single "Ill be home." Nobody else close with the possible exception of Crosby who made "Im dreaming" at the start of WW2 for a generational hit. She made it pretty clear that she didn't have an open mind on his long-term FB future. It was going to be her-way or the Hgwy. He probably wanted out. So do I think he's stunned at this 'change.' NO. The original had some things going for it that disguised a nonsense script. I'm not interested enough to see that repeated. Also the original was pre-AIDS making it look pretty crazy with that hindsight. Jimmy lost his mother and brother at about the same time. He was hit hard by both. He's never been the same. He was very into his immediate family. They are gone, he is bitter. I've had never seen the series. Now that I've viewed a block, I think I have the hang of watching it. I would say that <b>the endings run about 80-90 % counterintuitive.</b> So whatever the logical last minute should be ...well it isn't going to turn out that way. For example this morning's Ep with Chas Bronson and the exquisite Lola Albright had Lola putting a round into Charles with his own gun. Which was ok except how calm she was thoughout the story it was kind of unfair. But that's the way it goes so that's what I expect now. The Ep's can be quite mean as well. "dont suit her. " ---------------- She's in the news. The NBA is an open relationship league. It cost her HC friend -Celtics- his job (I don't know if she's married to him). In any case she has some stuff going on. The Royals --in the 21st century are about show biz. So much of UK is tourism. They don't have natural resources and industry. They do have a history, finance center and diplomacy. All of which is aided by the tradition of the monarchy. That's it. It's like a long-running play that's comfortable to those who like it and an annoyance to those who do not. Elizabeth was liked and admired. I seriously doubt whether any of the other royals are. Even if some are sincere. My guess would be the royals will be greatly diminished in 25 years or less. Done. It's like saying do you think the Uni-bomber was a PhD student at U.Michigan? Mentally ill can sometimes get through early adulthood and accomplish things, before going off the deep end. You then ask well why didn't anyone notice, why didn't he get help? It happens. Lee harvey Oswald had mental problems but he was a Marine radar tech stationed in Japan as a 20yo. Can't believe she scored a network show. ABC execs must have been drunk... I didn't like any of the characters ...other than Gabe/Kotter. The Washington kid constantly mispronouncing Kotter ( Car-ti-ier) just became too annoying after the first 20 times. The Travolta character was dumb. Really stupid. It shouldn't be surprising he got out as soon as he could. It was a cheap sitcom. Realism was not a priority. Outside of Kaplan, Travolta's popularity and the theme song the show had nothing. If you like a bunch of third-rate actors playing students and mugging for the camera this series was for you.
