Legend of the Seeker


At first, I wasn’t really impressed with “Legend of the Seeker“. I heard pretty bad stuff about Terry Goodkind‘s “Sword of Trurth” novels it’s based on – and that was from the guy who actually liked them. On the other hand, executive producer of the “Seeker” is Sam Raimi who – in that dark era after “Evil Dead” and before “Spiderman” – produced “Hercules” and “Xena”: two shows placed in a Disneyland version of ancient Greece where Hippocrates, Caesar, Zeus and Lucifer all shared the same neighborhood.

Stephen Fry Appreciation Monday

Stephen Fry pulls different expressions on his face

Dear faithful readers – happy Stephen Fry Appreciation Monday!

And I might as well wish you happy holidays :)

Live long and prosper in the New Year dear faithful readers and do come back often – we like having you around :)

So another year is coming to an end and we had a LOT of Stephen Fry Appreciation. We have covered anything and everything from podgrams and twitter to broken arms and Norfolk.

We do have the latest season of Kingdom to look forward to in January/February. I did try and check the ITV schedule to see if there is a set date but no luck. Ah bless I love that show so much plus I can squeal now “I’ve been there!”. And at this time last year who would have thought I’d walk the Wells beach?

Anyhow I wanted to ask you my dear faithful readers is there anything you would like to see covered that we have not done so far? Being the end of the year and all plus I do like to comply with your wishes.

Although bare in mind – I draw the line at watching Spice Girls the movie, no matter how fond I am of Mr. Fry. I mean I sat through St. Trinians that was more then enough.

So do let me know if there is anything you would like covered in the comments section below.
