Funny, but she reminds me of someone.... Grin

Isn't she AMAZING?

Finished the second season of The Avengers. It was a lot better than I remembered it but it did become a struggle towards the end. A little too dry and occasionally slow moving to watch too much of. A product of its time.

However, I have re-evaluated Venus Smith.

What a lovely character and a nice juxtaposition to Cathy Gale. Venus' innocence and relationship with Steed became a delight but don't get me wrong, I always looked forward to the next episode with Mrs Gale.

I completely agree with you about Venus Smith: she had some really good episodes but for whatever reason her character didn't capture interest in the same way that Cathy Gale did.

A master class in close in stage acting. Every line gets it's own movement or facial expression.

Could it have been Cathy in leather and beating the crap out of the bad guys - male and female? Grin

Venus was much more the "traditional" damsel in distress character though in terms of character development she was certainly less naive by the end of her last story.

Much as I will miss the opportunity they could have taken with Venus I felt the show was more stable with the Steed and one full time partner scenario.

I've been thinking...yes that was the horrible grating metal sound you may have heard...I agree with you about Cathy being so forceful it made her a success because that balanced with Steed better than the other "companions" . Steed IS an action man but a gentlemanly fighter. So both characters have opposing traits within themselves whilst the other companions were straightforward man/woman types. The duality in both characters brings a better dynamic and really mixes it up in terms of drama and the chemistry between the 2 leads. And after Mrs Gale, ALL the female leads can stand on their own two feet. A winning formula.

A very good analysis OSP. Looking at it from the Steed perspective and his way of action wasn't something I had considered.

I haven't seen the Tara episodes in a VERY long time and I am several seasons off her time but I remember her being rather wimpy in comparison to Cathy and Emma.

I have to say I tend not to watch the Tara King series. Wimp or not the thing that gets me is that they took the quirkiness of the Emma Peel episodes and made it just plain weird. They lost credibility in the last series sadly.

Altered Carbon, it's a Netflix series apparently. First season's episodes are all available through various means. Very entertaining. Quite hard to find decent scifi. It has a bit of a Bladerunner feel, smashed out with a bit of Equilibrium, specifically some of combat sequences, similar dystopian feel.

New Bodyguard series, very good
 
Child Of Auron
Caught up with the first episode of the new series of Great British Bake Off

I am not into shows like this normally but GBBO has an appeal which I cannot resist

Finished the second season of The Vampire Diaries which held up well especially with the death of one of the original cast towards the end. Though the dreaded Klaus has turned up. I felt the story of "The Originals" went on too long in the series as a whole, they even got their own spin-off. Joseph Morgan doesn't portray the Klaus character with any menace, his acting actually makes it more laughable.

Good to see Bonnie grow in her witchiness and Damon become more "human". I can recall why these two were my favourite characters.

Anyway, now on to the third season of The Avengers. More Kinky Boots with Steed and Cathy Smile

Watching The Rocky Horror Picture Show for the very first time in my entire freaking life (I'm 30 in 3 1/2 weeks)... standout songs include "Time Warp", "Sweet Transvestite" and "Science Fiction Double Theatre".

Which version? The original or the remake.

I haven't yet watched the re-make...it's only been on my PVR for two years or so.

Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell.

Two eps in, and all I can say is it is not what I expected (in a good way). I have virtually no idea what is going on and I don't care. It is captivating, and Mark Warren is a master of theatrical arts.

In tribute to Jacks and despite how much I hate horror films, I watched the hammer horror movie "Reptile". It really is bad and I don't blame Jacks not wanting to wear a rubber mask in her future roles! It was hideous in the wrong way.

I love the Reptile, great atmospheric horror, watching that and Plague of the Zombies tonight (well they were made on the same sets!) Classic hammer horror!

I've been watching Death in Paradise. I just saw the episode with Josette Simon as a guest actor.
