Ah, yes! Lucifer! One of the very best of the more current crop of entertainment in my book.

Apparently Tom Ellis, who plays Lucifer, was asked to read at the audition in an American accent. He didn't think it worked so he read it in his normal English accent. It helped get him the part.

Did you watch it dubbed or with the original soundtrack?

Original. English accent absolutely works for the way he portrayed his character.

Indeed. Speaking of bad guys,

Time Machine - the one from the early naughties.

The Morlock leader. In my book, one of the best silver screen villains in the history of silver, screens and villainy.

SPOILER BELOW!

The film was not bad at all. Even had some thought provoking elements to it, although I personally found the answer to the storyline question intuitively obvious.

I recommend. Also, the baddie really ought to be the role model for us all.

The Great a rich concoction of historical fantasy, sex, gore and comedy. How this ever got funded is a miracle. But it got a lot of funding, the scripts are second to none, the acting brilliant and the sets and costumes amazing. A real gem of a production.

Wholesome, educational entertainment for a happily-fascinated The Asmo. :smilenod: This pleases Him.

Really? :-( I think the BBC might have it. It's Secrets of the Castle - a series about the Guédelon project.

I set my location to Toronto in my VPN and could access the video. I always watch BBC TV programs by setting my location as London.

I watch it on the Timeline channel, therefore I posted it as a YouTube link.

Whatever the case, I do recommend if you like castles and/or medieval technology and/or lifestyle and want some, how did I put it?

It's in five parts. They do make sense individually, and the one I posted is narrowly my favourite, but can recommend the whole thing.

BWAHAHA! Oh, The Asmo's The Asmo!

Still watching the castles series, and Ruth, the historian lady just made my week. She was making a period-accurate paint brush.

"I went and found some badger hair. Well, I'll be honest, there was a b- there was some road kill... So I shaved it." I mean, the way she presented it... Pure gold. :lol: The badger's life was not in vain.

Still a probably-geolocked Timeline vid. The scene I'm talking about is from 28:38-ish.
