The Librarian


Have consumed the first two episodes of "Vicious" along with multiple cups of morning coffee ... Oh! What a delicious delight this show is! Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi are so obviously having tons of fun at the so-much-it's-probably-illegal level and it works because they both have the talent to go miles over the top in their performances while simultaneously including beautifully subtle expressions and gestures. Both scene-stealing from each other like crazy and both strong enough to play this game without being successfully overshadowed by the other. Honestly can't imagine this show working with anybody else in the roles.

The series two DVD is definitely on my must-buy list. :-)

Knitting progress ...

Would have been a heckuva lot further along today but impossible to watch all the rest of season one of "Vicious" (once started I couldn't stop) AND my stitches ... McKellen and Jacobi won the battle for my eyes and brain. ;p
