I just finished watching the first four episodes of House of Cards
, a BBC show from the 90's that's essentially RIII* in Parliament. They even make references. Lots of them. It's SO INCREDIBLY GOOD, and I need to write more about it when I'm not falling asleep. But seriously. Ian Richardson is gold
, and like eighteen times better than he was as Holmes in the HOUN I reviewed at some point here, and Colin Jeavons is in it and I could seriously listen to him talk for hours. I don't care what he's saying; I just love the man's voice. He plays such a despicable guy XD Well, seriously, they all do. This feeds my love of eeeeevil characters so SO much. It's also got a fair dose of "holy squick!" to go along with it o_o Which I could have done without, but the disturbingness adds to the drama.
*I'm using RIII to distinguish the play from Richard III the historical person.
Okay, Starsky and Hutch quote of the day. They were undercover throughout this episode, Starsky as an Argentine dancing instructor named Ramone and Hutch as a Texan named Charlie who was learning to dance. At the end, the famous old movie star, Ginger something, who owned the dancing studio came in to talk to them at the precinct, incidentally interrupting Starsky's enthusiastic attempts to teach Hutch to dance. After they talked plot, this ensued:
Ginger: I wish you'd come back to the studio. [Lady Starsky was teaching to dance] really misses you. She says nobody dips like Ramone.
Starsky: *eyebrow waggle* *makes some suggestive comment*
Hutch: *rolls eyes*
Ginger: Bye-bye, boys! *leaves*
Starsky: *to Hutch* Nobody dips like Ramone!
Hutch: Nobody's a dip like Ramone. *chuckles, highly amused with self*
Starsky: *grabs him and dips him low, repeating back Hutch's Texan catch-phrase of the episode* If you've got it, flaunt it, boy.
I love them so much I can't even begin to express it.
