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!
