I saw Beauty and the Beast last week and was more than happy to be their guest. I really liked that the opening introduction stayed truer to the original story than the 1991 animated film. Instead of the Beast appearing because Belle’s father trespassed Maurice is jailed for taking a rose. This was a nice […]

What a big mistake. Bridget, who has broken off her engagement to Mark Darcy is back to her thirtysomething ways despite […]

Baxter Fang was no exception, he was a bit of an oblivious doofus and portrayed the lost […]

I really enjoy Scully Gillian Anderson in Charles Dickens adaptations and like her performance in Great Expectations, she plays the creep Lady Deadlock wonderfully. She is mysterious and strange, quiet similar to her character in the X-Files, or perhaps I’m grasping at straws. Anna Maxwell Martin was so cute as Esther Summerson, her character was […]
