  1. "The Count of Monte Cristo" - one of my very favorite tales. Revenge - the topic around which the plot revolves is always relevant.

    Although I see myself a person with a forgiving nature, I'm sometimes shocked at the pleasure I feel upon hearing that someone who has wronged me got punished. I suppose I'm just human.

    1. I'm burning with excitement to hear whom they will cast in the lead role!

      It's only human, methinks, let us call us fans of justice not vengeful people :) Not that justice happens often in today's world.... I think I prefer them admitting they were wrong and asking for forgiveness rather then seeing them punished in some nasty way. But then again, some crimes might be unforgivable...

  2. We do expect a full report once the lead has been cast. I'll be looking forward to seeing it no matter who is cast, though.

    1. most ladies want Aidan Turner again, but I think he should make a small break, we need a new face for this. I vote Rupert Penry Jones or Tom Weston Jones!

    1. Hope they give him a new hairdo if he gets the role, though.
