Carravaggio

"Listen guv, I'm a ten-guv-a-day copper, always have been, always will be."

Everyone here is upset over the Hamster. I am truly concerned, but I am also bemused at discovering just how many folks I know are actually closet Top Gear fans. And here I was going to tell you how annoyed I was at missing it on Monday. Doesn't seem quite so important now. I wuv the Hamster, and it makes me sad.

Meanwhile, I'm waiting for the "if you hate it so much, why are you watching" emails. None so far. I am disappointed. Love Sam, I do, and it's a testament to John's skills as an angsty thesp that he can make a character so unlikeable on paper so damn loveable on screen. I really do like Sam very much and I think he has many fine qualities. I just find the darkness that ripples beneath the surface intriguing. Sam is a messed up guy, whichever way you slice it, and that makes him fascinating. I suspect Gene agrees re the fascination.
