    Berlin Wall

    The whole "keep people in the dark" twi thing probably owes itself to vpw not being too smart, so he controlled the access to knowledge to make it look like he had divine sources to puff himself up. People had to come to him for news and things. For 15-20 years, it's been FAR too easy to get all sorts of news. Before, there was radio, TV, newspapers and so on. The internet's added to that dramatically. Does it surprise anyone that twi STILL says to stay off the internet?
  3. That's them. The sheer number of actors narrowed the possibilities, and eliminating Shakespeare narrowed it further. Jeremy Brett is known primarily for playing Sherlock, and both Robert Downey Jr and Will Farrell played him recently. Ian McKellen played a retired SH in "Mr Holmes" fairly recently. At least twice as many actors as I posted have played him, but I listed the ones you may have heard of (Stewart Granger, John Barrymore....) If you missed this, I was going to add Johnny Lee Miller, Benedict Comberbatch, and Basil Rathbone. In other news, I'm skipping town for about a week, shortly, so I'll rejoin you in about a week. Talk amongst yourselves.

  5. Maybe I already did. Mrs Wolf looked over the current list, and got it over my shoulder. She said there was 1 actor there that she only knew for exactly one role.
  6. After this, I can either post a bunch of names you won't recognize, or about 4 names that will make it painfully obvious.

  8. Not Shakespeare, and not Herman's Hermits. So, no Henry the Eighth.
  9. Welcome. I'm surprised you stuck in there that long, but everyone's experience was different, so that's that. If you'd like to share what you experienced, we'd like to hear it. News from 2000- 2012 or later is especially appreciated, since there's so little news on those to reach us in the first place. Feel free to ask any questions, hopefully with a little tact.

    Berlin Wall

    Ok, that's shocking even for them. I forget how callous the top people can be- unless it's THEIR ox getting gored, in which case we all have to drop what we are doing....
  11. I'm surprised at the number of re-made movies. Why is the idea of remaking "CHILD'S PLAY" a good idea? I'm still trying to figure out why it got sequels.
  12. No. He's well-known, but not QUITE as well known. But, cheez, have a lot of actors played him! (No, I didn't hide a clue in there, I was just making an observation.)

  14. Was that the "Charles" character from the "Infantile Amusements" series?
  15. What you said may well be true, but most of those actors never played Dracula. They all, however, have shared a different role.

  17. A) Dinner Impossible. B) Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. C) World's Worst Cooks. D)Kitchen Boss. E) Iron Chef America. F) Chefs Vs City G) Guys Grocery Games (Triple-G). George's turn!
  18. "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives." But that's the CORRECT show.
  19. Ok, some cooking shows. Name any to take the round. A) Michael Symon filled in for a season when Robert Irvine was fired for padding his resume. RI returned for the next season, because he was interesting and Symon was not! B) Guy Fieri zooms around, stopping at little hole-in-the-wall eating establishments and other places, and finds out how they make some specialty for which they are known. The nickname for this show is "Triple-D". C) 2 chefs assemble teams, then try to teach them to make dishes- after which the teams compete to make the dishes competently. D) Buddy Velasco tried to do a standard cooking show. This was the result- and it's not his best-remembered work.... E) Who decided that the best choice for a host for a cooking show is an actor-martial artist? Mark DeCasco was the host for a while. F) This show ended because Chris Cosentino, one of its hosts, was too injured from various "eat the hot food" challenges to continue in his role. Aron Sanchez and he normally had traveled from place to place, trying to out-cook and out-race local chefs at some local dishes and local sites. (The locals may be used to making the dish all the time, and definitely knew all the driving shortcuts.) Both teams (of 2) were issued a car and backpack for the episode (ignore the backpack's contents and risk losing the episode for lack of some critical tool.) One season had Food Network chefs brought in to compete against Aron and Chris. G) Walmart "Flavortown" is the setting for this cooking show. Four chefs (professional or amateur) compete to make a specified type of dish within the parameters, using the workstations provided and the contents of the Walmart "Flavortown" supermarket in which this show is filmed.
  20. Ok, name this role: Orson Welles John Gielgud Clive Merrison Stewart Granger John Cleese Roger Moore Christopher Plummer Frank Langella Tom Baker
  21. Had to be somebody who's been all over the place. In this case, this "dirty, rotten scoundrel" was MICHAEL CAINE, wasn't it?
