It starts next week here, I think. Still haven't seen season two.
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!

I was not too happy when I saw what happens while looking at the BBC news website...an article complaining about how Christmas was ruined because of what happened and it said what happened right in the link to the article. Oh well, I will try to forget it.

Yeah, I already know, mainly because of an article about the actor himself, spilling the beans. Ah well.

If it is the character I am thinking of....
Then I don't much care...But I'm peeved in that I can't order the Xmas special until I have moved house!...I doubt it's been released here yet....I shall make enquiries.

For those of us who can't wait till January 6, Stephen Colbert has a great segment where the actors from Downton Abbey do a Breaking Bad spoof (as their DA characters.)

That Stephen Colbert bit was so funny. I don't watch Breaking Bad, but I know what it's about. I kept saying to my husband, who doesn't watch Downton Abbey, how hysterical it was!
