Pullo picking out the furniture?
We finished watching Rome on DVD, and I gotta tell ya, I love Pullo! I kept wanting to give the big dumb lug a hug. He's not too bright and he knows he's not too bright, and he keeps making mistakes and realizing he's made mistakes and then he's sorry and awwww.... Hugs!
I confess I kinda overlooked Ray Stevenson in King Arthur, what with Clive Owen and Ioan Gruffudd, but I watched it again last night. I'd forgotten the bits with the little boy and awwwwww.... Yep, totally a fan now.
Apparently Mr. Stevenson was an interior designer at one time. Makes for some interesting "what if's": Don't like the wallpaper? Let me just pull out the ol' broadsword here and see if I can't convince you...
I didn't read the recaps or posts about Rome at Television Without Pity because I didn't want to be spoiled. But now that I've seen it -- oh, dear! Trying to work here, kids! Must...not...read...until...daily...writing...is...done. Because the folks at TWoP? Totally crack me up!
Not that I think Rome is perfect. I have some quibbles, but when you've got interesting characters like Pullo and Vorenus? I can overlook them.
In other TV-related news, apparently Donald Trump has fired Carolyn. And George won't be on the next season of The Apprentice, either. For me, those are the final nails in the coffin. I enjoyed the first season, but it's been going downhill ever since. For one thing, every task is pretty much about marketing, and that's not that interesting to me.
I've also learned Richard Armitage is going to be on Mystery this week, so you know what I'll be doing Sunday night!
(The pictures of Ray Stevenson came from Ray-Stevenson.com. They've set up the gallery quite nicely, I must say! Made it very easy to find what I was looking for.)
