Excellent thought! I can't believe you brought up Black Adder! A constant character through history that you simply LOVE to hate. Some of Rowan Atkinson's best performances were here (Mr. Bean, IMHO, was for the birds). Two especially fantastic episodes were the BEER episiode and the very final episode of the entire series (taking place during WWI's trench warfare). The two episodes show the sheer talent Atkinson has.

But, again, he's a character you LOVE to hate, and as I'm scripting this week and next that is something I'm trying to hone and work on. Someone who thinks so much of themselves and their abilities that nothing could EVER go wrong, and when it does, well, hell, it's not their fault. Also think Kenneth Brannagh in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Gildroy Lockharte in the books). Just cringeworthy, but you can't look away.

I have been involved in seances for over 20 years. Having said that one of the most emotional and moving experiences is having performed a seance which starts off with humor and is light and turns dark, very dark. It is extememly unnerving. I realize this is a bit off topic but if tried and performed correctly.. is an emotional roller coaster that leaves the participants uneasy but very much entertained. Just to cite an example you start out using a board and making light of it and then the board takes over and you lose control. This can be so unnerving that you must tell the participants at the end that it is all just an act. Some do not believe you.
If I were to agree with you. Then we would both be wrong. As of Apr 5, 2015 10:26 pm I have 880 posts. Used to have over 1,000
