nick julius

i need the girls who were fangirling hardcore over the pepperwood chronicles to find out that jess and nick are back together and i need them to freak out about it too and use their relationship as fuel for their pepperwood chronicles book ideas and i need nick to meet up with them again and for those girls to start talking about if pepperwood and jessica night get married or whatever and i need there to be that look of realization on his face as jess walks in to scold him for stealing her students again

A Malcolm 8:30 in less than 38 seconds.  And Robyn thought she had a tough time.  Although I imagine as Julius’s press secretary, this is probably the easiest part of poor mister no-name dude’s day. 

(Julius + the press = nightmare is what I’m saying, hence Malcolm being tasked with polishing him up, burnishing him up.)

Malcolm just cannot help fucking with Darling Julius, even if it’s only by proxy.  You will notice though that – very unusually for him – Malcolm never at any point actually deploys (as Julius will one day refer to it) the f word.    


Oh, Darling Julius, what an introduction!

I would really love to know if Department to Count the Moon was in the original script or if it was an improv because the laugh it gets seems unprompted and there’s not reaction shot from the audience that I would expect if it was really planned. 

Also, and admittedly this is pretty esoteric, as well as being proof that I let the strangest things bother me for the longest time, but I finally have an satisfying answer to how Nick Hanway can be seen here in 105/202 as a random civil servant bod at Malcolm’s 8:30 – a position that is supposed to be completely apolitical –  and then later be seen in the 100% political role of Tom’s Glenn in Spinners and Losers .
