It's just like high school. The geeky boys grew into handsome men, and all the jocks got fat and ugly.

My BIL traveled to London a lot and determined that MPFC was not a comedy; it was a documentary.

I really love how the NY Times now lets you bypass the mandatory subscription if you sign in with Google or FB.

I wish the Washington Post would get wise and do the same.

Obviously if the studio that owns Harry Potter knew what they had n their hands, they'd do a Neville Longbottom "Man who knew to little" spy movie.

He becomes the Hogwarts Herbology professor. Make it a 7th year NEWT (and 18 yo) student falls in love with her Herbology professor and spends the whole year trying to get his attention.

That's the best comedic form.
Portlandia likewise.

He did go full longbottom but Dudley Dursley has also benefited from the passing of time.

Rupert is 5'8"

Tom is 5'9"
Matt is 6' - even though he looks like a giant next to the other Hobbits

Dudley has a great role in The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. Sad end to him though.

I had to stop half way through that segment and look up the actor because he seemed so familiar. Boy, was I surprised.

He looks like a mostly normal person who has the time and money to eat right and exercise.

Even in the later Harry Potter movies, I did a double take thinking, "That chubby kid turned into a handsome devil."

He was adorable in Ripper Street and funny in Me Before You. And holy shiat I had to post this one.

Apparently he wasn't a chubby kid for long, they put him in a fat suit for most of the Potter movies.  They also taped his ears so they'd stick out and had him wear protruding false teeth.  They only ditched all that stuff in "Deathly Hallows."

Huh. I thought Neville was that geeky guy in Queens Gambit. He was in Harry Potter too but I guess those kids looked the same to me.

Exactly. Somewhere between 18 & 21 I apparently got "hot" by losing 70 lbs, was able to grow facial hair, and got contacts. 80% of the time that I wanted to, I could leave the club with a girl.

My class' hot-shot, douch-ey star basketball player now weighs about 400lbs and except for 1 or 2 that are naturally tiny, all the hot chicks got just-past-Mom-bod fat.

The previous BBC adaptation was damn near perfect, and that's coming from someone who automatically hates adaptations of literary works.  Part- no, most- of that is Herriot's ability to paint a word picture.  The screenwriters didn't have much of anything to do.  Another thing that helped was the fact that the books are a series of short anecdotes, each of which is easily turned into a single episode of a larger series.

To be honest, I'm not looking forward to this at all.  I haven't seen it yet (but plan to).  My gut instinct tells me that the new adaptation is going to take unnecessary liberties with the material and turn it into Wuthering Heights, With Dogs.

I've watched the first two episodes. I don't think it quite has the charm of the original, but the videography/cinematography of the countryside is absolutely beautiful. Makes me feel homesick TBH.
