This weekend the universe told me to post about how awesome Robert Carlyle is. It probably felt the need to prod me because I recently finished The Last Enemy and haven't yet publicly squeeed about how awesome it is that his character had not one line of dialogue in the first episode, but was still the scariest character pretty much ever.  I just typed out a huge spoiler and then backspaced it.  I loved the entire thing, and hopefully there will be spoilers in the comments here as anyone else who watched it chimes in, but I'm going to leave the body of the entry spoiler-free, just in case.

So I was in an art supply store just wandering around looking for present ideas, and I picked up this book:



and flipped to the middle-ish, caught a flash, ended up a few pages earlier, and thought, 'hey, that was Robert Carlyle'.  Sure enough, one of the 30 Great Ads was the Johnnie Walker ad - The Man Who Walked Around the World.

I'm sure most of you have probably seen it, but it's totally worth a re-watch and, hey, he did it in one take, so he deserves a little extra worship from us.  Edited to add - oh dear, apparently RC did any number of takes and was willing to keep going - so he not only presents us with a single, flawless take in the end, but we can now all pine away for the outtakes...



Oh, hey, is anyone watching Perception on TNT?  I was all - Hey!  A Numb3rs knockoff!  Sweet! - so now I'm catching up.

I pulled up this Masterpiece Contemporary The Last Enemy off a Netflix search for streamable Robert Carlyle, and who did I find in the lead role?  Sherlock.  I consider this a pretty sweet deal.

Also, halfway through the first ep Woman From His Past Who Will Turn Out To Be More Than She Seems shows up and she’s sporting a blonde bob, dressed all in black - coat with turtleneck and a huge silver brooch, and my first thought is Psi Corps - run!  It is never too late to watch B5, the eps look less dated than you would expect.

To keep things balanced within our crime fighting duo, I also recently finished up listening to the Hitchhiker’s Guide during my commute, most of which are read by Watson, who is not quite married to Jackson Brodie’s potential new squeeze, DC Louise Monroe, on Case Histories - if I’m so lucky that they go ahead with a new series, bringing us neatly back around to Masterpiece Mystery.  Having Jason Isaacs on Awake is nice, but I prefer him not sounding american, though he does a good accent.
