  5. You know I don't like SF, but ooohhh, I DO like Josh Holloway! Now I have to decide if I like him enough to tune in.

    Not quite how I pictured The Rat-Man to look, but then again, I usually do picture people different in the book over how Hollywood thinks they should look.

    1. The same about casting could go for the GENIUS movie, they've cast all those stars pretty randomly... some of them are supposed to have 20 or more years difference in age if they're supposed to play those characters

  6. Looking forward to "Genius" -- I love movies about literary figures!
