THE ASTONISHING ADVENTURES OF LORD LIKELY

Good clean bawdy fun.

By Chris Poirier, editor

Sep 19, 2008: I have good news for Hugh Laurie: on work experience alone, he’ll be first pick to play Lord Likely in the BBC production.

Imagine, if you will, what would happen if you crossed the Crown Prince from Blackadder the Third with Wooster of Jeeves and Wooster and then with House himself.

IRON

YEEHAW!

I used to like Weird Westerns when I was a boy, I loved that old television show "The Wild Wild West" back in the sixties, I was about ten years old then. They were pretty wooden and slow. But, newer takes on the genre, like Firefly, have been absolutely enthralling. This is starting to turn that direction.
