Because after my terrible day, I need to cheer myself up…
I recently reviewed, for Film.com, a new box set of a British cop series called George Gently. (I’m kinda Film.com’s go-to girl for British TV.) It’s good stuff if you like British TV cop dramas. But I’m kinda limited, word-count-wise, as to how long I can blather on at Film.com, so I never got around to mentioning that the first story on the first of the three discs in the set, “Gently Go Man,” features the utterly scrumptious Richard Armitage in a prominent guest role. You know, the lovely Northerner who plays Sir Guy of Gisbourne in the current BBC production of Robin Hood. You know: the only thing worth watching in that Robin Hood. (I reviewed Season One a while back. I downloaded Season Two from iTunes but haven’t had a chance to watch it yet.)
Three words sum up Armitage in Gently: leather biker gear. And maybe two more words: homoerotic awesomeness.
