Think I might actually stream this one thru the Apple teev to the big screen later tonight when I'm done writing and editing. These folk are doing God's work.
Not because I'm on deadline. Just because you cannae beat a flying double kick to the chest, or a double handed backhand back fist. But you can totally beat a giant space lizard wearing a scarf. If your name is James T. Kirk, motherfuckers.

I was saddened to get an email from Guru Bob this morning informing me that Bodie, also known as the actor Lewis Collins, had died overnight. The rougher half of Bodie and Doyle in The Professionals, he always seemed to be running up to his partner and boss with a slightly bovine look on his face to ask, "Wazzup?"
I came late to The Professionals, because my parents didn't watch it when I was a kid. Or maybe they did and I was just in bed by the time it came on. I remember first catching up with it at uni, when I was sharing a house with a couple of blokes who became, respectively, a cop and a spy. How's that for predestination?
It's funny though, I've been thinking about buying the original series and watching it with Thomas. I might do that now. Although I wonder if he would find the pacing a bit dull and the fight scenes a bit stagey.
I don't suppose many of our American burgers would remember the series, or would even have seen it. At any rate they're probably comatose with Turkey poisoning by now. The rest of us can have a quiet moment and raise a glass in their absence to the absence of the rougher half of Bodie and Doyle.

Thanks to Mark Clarkson for this rather awesome little fan vid by Billy Dakiduk.

Unless they fuck it up, of course. Details are pretty sketchy so far, but Fox has confirmed the option on the whole trilogy.
Interesting to see how they'll do it. Unlike GoT, the Rothfuss novels stretch over decades, not just a few months. It's a first person story too, of course, and although there is a cast of hundreds, the focus remains tightly on Kvothe the narrator.
Not sure how many peeps here have read the books. I could happily spend hours teasing out the various threads that could make any number of hour long episodes, but I'll spare the nonbelievers.
