The most interesting thing about the Persuaders to me is that it does have some, in the scheme of things, high-profile directors for being a TV production. CC entrants Roy Ward Baker and Basil Dearden, for two. It's a total blast, and I cherish Network's BD of it (and look forward to the inevitability of a Saint collection on BD sometime in the near future).


Point taken, glad to hear from other fans :)

Every year the Allman Bros Band would play extended dates at NY's Beacon Theater and every year I say I want to go. Of course, I never did. And now I really regret not going. Sigh.

I watched him live in 2013 with his solo band. Probably the most enjoyable experience of live music I've had. I sat about 10-15 feet from his Hammond organ and his voice and chops had not left him at all. Despite going through several well-known health issues over the last several years.

Sad as it was that they retired in 2014 it seems less sad looking back that the surviving members (as well as newer but vital members like Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks) decided to call it a day and walk away from it as opposed to being halted by Gregg or Butch Trucks' death this year.

Fortunately Gregg recorded one last album over the last few years, so there is still some new music to look forward to. It will be a bittersweet affair knowing its his last, but if it holds up to his last record Low Country Blues it will be quite good.

A lot like Roger Moore, in many ways he will always be the only real Batman.

Loved his cameo in Badasssss. And of course, his work in Family Guy.


That episode where he dares himself to watch Garbage Paul Kids in the dark...lol

I actually had no idea the inventor of Hawaiian pizza was Canadian. Makes sense.

Peter Bondanella, whose book A History of Italian Cinema remains my favourite single-volume survey of the subject at least three decades after I first read it.

Yeah a terrific book I've read a few times and that's really helped guide my exploration of Italian cinema.

Unfortunate, I don't think that was expected. Still waiting for a decent release of A Degree of Murder.

Didn't realize he directed both Rocky and Rocky V. What a combo.

Last night I was watching some old Dream On episodes and Stephen Furst had a small role in one. He plays an actor who complains to his agent about being typecast as a pathetic loser. The joke is that he's playing Martin Tupper (the star of Dream On), who's standing next to him during this phone rant about getting pathetic roles.

In the episode, they're making a film about Tupper's ex-wife's super-impressive 2nd husband, Richard. Martin falls for the actress who plays his ex-wife Judith, who then leaves him for the actor playing Richard -- as the same fate happens again to Martin Tupper. David Bowie plays the director of the film, who delights in being cruel. And for this one hour Dream On, they pull out all sorts of stars -- Mimi Rogers, Tom Berenger, a Sly Stallone cameo, Eva Gabor as well, etc. But it was nice to see Furst, who gets to vent a little about the type of schlub roles he usually gets.

Memorist Margaux Fragoso at 38. I wasn't familiar with her sole work, Tiger, Tiger, but based on these reviews, I'm unlikely to change that
