I just started in on watching the U.K. Scarlet Pimpernel television series.  First of all, awesome show.  Second, I was pleasantly surprised by a Robert Shaw appearance in the first episode (always love seeing Robert Shaw in *anything*).  Third, Patrick Troughton was unbelievably dishy and breathtakingly handsome.  

Only eighteen episodes (dammit) so I’m trying to savor this series.  I love it totally.  The episode “The Princess” actually got me emotional.  Bravo, Marius Goring!
