Comment on Like A Boss

  1. Mycroft and Sherlock in profile

    Considering how easy it is to miss things on tumblr I'm so grateful I managed to catch your fabulous post in the first place, lol. I may have developed a small thing for Julian Rhind-Tutt - if you've got any recs for him, please let me know :D

    I'm watching Keen Eddie at the moment, which is lots of fun, and I'm enjoying it, but he's not in it that much. Tried a bit of Green Wing, but not sure if it's my thing at all...

    And of course thank you for reading and the comment and the reblog and all. I'm especially glad that you of all people liked it. I realised belatedly that I took a bit of license with the format of the Cloth jokes, but oh, well. I clearly have to go watch the show a few more times! (Actually, I'm saving the last ep as a reward for getting the stuff I should actually be doing done, so I've not even watched it all yet!).

    1. The third series is rather lacking in Boss generally I'm afraid so there's not a whole lot more of him to enjoy in the final episode, though there's lots more parody-tastic general fun! I love the format of the show - you just can't help find something to laugh at every thirty seconds, even if another five or six jokes have passed you by in the meantime, and it means it's all very rewatchable. Much kudos to Charlie Brooker for some very intensive spoof and joke writing, and I'm sure he'd appreciate your homage to his efforts! :D

      I haven't seen massive loads of JRT, though he's worked with Mark a couple of times - he's in the first episode of Crooked House, and Halloween Party one of the Poirots Mark adapted, and they did a few radio things together (Faust, and The Quest, both of which are on my downloads page if you're interested!). They were supposed to do a play together Darker Shores but that's the one Mark pulled out of when his sister died, alas. Otherwise I can recommend the episode of Black Books he pops up in as a dashingly handsome explorer everyone loves! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omLvvChxTho

        Oooh, thanks for the recs! There's a lot more radio things out there than I ever realised, and I haven't actually seen Crooked House yet, so maybe I should. Also this Black Books thing people have been raving about for years. Much appreciated (it's so lovely that you have links, as well - you're a gem) :D
