I meant to post that.

There are better sources to use in making a War of the Rose series. :rolleyes:
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"

At home with a good book and the cat...

Starz is an extra package on Dish so I won't be seeing it. Unless they have a free promo weekend...

I don't know why Sharon Kay Penman gets overlooked? Now her books would make a great TV drama including the Welsh trilogy. Such a shame.

Having a historically accurate War of the Roses series would be nice.

LOL. Too funny. Yet true.


Yeah, I wonder how much incest we can pack into the miniseries. Also I wonder how many times they are going to repeat their lines. I think it was the Red Queen where she kept saying "joan of arc" "joan of arc".....
