-Can I help you with something?
-Fuck,what was I gonna ask?

Homecoming Season 1(2018)
Julia Roberts first TV series!She's about take a tour of 'the facilities' (MOST PRODUCTION DESIGN) in one long showy tracking shot.I have no idea what this show is about but I'm eager to watch it.Especially since it's only 1/2 an hour long.

Finally...a sad goodbye to British actor Nicol Williamson (1936-2012),my very first "Merlin"(though I've lost track of how many actors I've seen as the sorcerer since).

Mirren and Williamson owning Excalibur (1981)

Daily MUBIhas the roundups of obits for theExcalibur(1981) actor.My most vivid memories of that film,aside from the Lancelot nudity (gasp) was the Merlin/Morgana Le Fay rapport.I was way too young to know that Helen Mirren and Williamson had...history.
