dletter: log_jammin: Omahawg: I am trying to develop a script based on the true stories of 19th century prostitutes. is there any interest? anyone? bueller?

I could see an HBO series based on that.

Isn't that basically "Jack the Ripper"?


I'd recommend the musical version "Saucy Jack" by D. St. Hubbins

I am just imagining Jerry Seinfeld as the lead.

Scene, Jerry and his friends are sitting around a pub.

Jerry: What the heck is wrong with that Paul Revier. I ask him to fix my silver teapot then he looks out his window and goes running off screaming about people in blue coats or something.

Friends: Ya, there is something really wrong about him.

Jerry: Then I go back to his house the next day asking about my teapot and he said he could not work on it because he was detained by these imaginary bluecoats.... Barman give me another mead.

Barman: NO MEAD FOR YOU.

SockMonkeyHolocaust: "Then they showed 'Arachnophobia'. Not what I would call an American Movie Classic"


As a comedy-horror movie; it sits in the top 3. EASILY.

/Army of Darkness and the original Scary Movie Saturday the 14th take up the other two slots.

varmitydog: Revere was made famous by the Longfellow poem about Concord and Lexington, but the Massachusetts militia did not trust him in military matters at all. His only action in the revolutionary war after getting captured on his famous ride came during the Penobscot expedition, which ended up in failure and he ended up being accused of cowardice and disobeying orders. He was a "dandy" who demanded his comforts, which several times caused delays in his providing covering fire for the colonial troops. During the final British attack he used his longboats to rescue his personal goods rather than the men stranded upriver, despite pleas from the stranded men and direct orders from superior officers. He later used his political influence to clear himself of all charges, but he was widely hated for this instance.

Crackers Are a Family Food: Slow To Return: mekki: Forget a comedy. I would love a Colonial America drama set around the 13 Colonies but mostly in the likes of Williamsburg, Philadelphia and Boston. They could use Colonial Williamsburg as a set. It would be like John Adams.

Yea, I'd watch this.

I loved Hell on Wheels, even if it was mostly just pointless meandering.

"John Adams" was excellent as well - brilliantly casted.

I'd be all over that, too. And yes, Hell on Wheels was awesome.

/gonna do the marathon thing because I actually don't have a ton of shiat to do today


WAS?

Apparently Hell on Wheels isn't done.

Wow that's awesome news. After the season two finale, I guess I just kinda assumed they were done.

mechgreg: Is there anything out there I am missing that I really should be watching?


Have you tried Justified? If you're a Timothy Olyphant (Deadwood) fan or a Walton Goggins (The Shield) fan, you'd probably like it.

But the showrunner left, so it's delayed.
