  1. Hard not to see John Snow whenever I see Kit Harington, but Gunpowder looks great.

    1. he is such a bland actor. From that horrid gorefest GOT to Pompei and Seventh Son, he always lacked charisma

    2. Agree, same for Tom Cullen. No charisma and mediocre actor.

    3. I'm waiting to see how Cullen will be like in Knightfall, whether he will be able to carry a whole show by himself

    4. Well let's just hope he won't behave like he did with The Five. When he was promoting it he was saying that it has 4 leads, after the show aired he said that he led it by himself.

  3. I did enjoy the trailer. I am excited to see Liv Tyler in something new. It seems like I haven't seen her in anything in ages.

    2. She's not the best actress, but there's just something sweet and endearing about her that draws me to her.

  4. I'm surprised the Gunpowder Plot hasn't received the mini-series treatment before now. It's a natural for a drama series!

    1. what do you mean it hasn't, dear? BBC had GUNPOWDER, TREASON PLOT less than ten years ago with Fass My Benders and Robert Carlisle and that wretched Clemence Poesy.

  7. Will be interesting to see Liv Tyler in something after so long (feel like I haven't seen her in anything in 20 years).
