Just grabbing a piece on the side.

Ioan Gruffudd

This sounds like the name of a hobbit.

My first thought when reading the headline was "they are digging up shiat on MCA now?!?"

Boy, she looks simply shocked at the news.

Well, at least they ran spell check. I don't think his first name was capitalized one single time in that article. I don't even know the show or the actor, but I found that pretty funny that they'd capitalize his last name and leave his first name lower case.

This guy's name makes him sounds like the Welsh guy who stole all the vowels.

"The actor, best known for starring in the Fantastic Four movies, "

If that's your claim to fame, probably best to pack it in.

He's been in real stuff too, he just has bills to pay.

Alice Evans sounds bitter, angry, and dismissive. Certainly the exact kind of person you just want to run home to at any given opportunity.

My ex accused me of having an affair with my new wife 11-12 years before wife 2 and I ever met. She was telling people I had an affair with her, fathered her child, then abandoned them for 11-12 years, then split with wife 1, and got back together with wife 2. That's just one of MANY absurd things she was running around telling people about me. Bitter, angry, and dismissive doesn't begin to describe it.

Re-reading the whole series, again, at the moment.

Adjust your meter. I was married for twenty years and we had some ground rules that we adhered to so that coming home was always a pleasure for either one of us. Never be dismissive about your partner's efforts even if they are smaller than your own. Time constraints, energy levels, mental health, childcare, or work requirements can all have a profound impact on a person's contributions. Adjust accordingly.

Never go to bed angry and never get up from the table until you've solved the problem. Your partner is never the problem. Their behavior might be the problem, but not them. Never make it personal. This woman claims her now ex-husband no longer wanted to have sex with her and that he felt she was uninteresting. Yet she makes no statements whatsoever about what she or they did to solve those problems. Instead, she follows it up with aspersions which means she's making it personal and she's very clearly angry about it. She then follows up with a sarcastic "Good luck Bianca" assuming that the failure of her most recent relationship is an indication of how someone else's relationship will work out. That's her bitterness showing.

Lastly, it's pretty damn hard to be an "incel" when I had the pleasure of being married to the most amazing woman I've ever known for the above mentioned twenty years. Had she not passed, we would have remained married for the rest of our lives.

Yeah, I know.

Those movies were so bad, I had to actually be reminded he was in them by this article.

Hornblower is a shame. It's obvious they saw the potential for a sequel or two in it, maybe even an actual franchise, but it never happened. My guess is CGI wasn't quite there yet so they had to film everything with practical effects and real ships and it was just too difficult and costly.
 
2021-10-27 11:12:34 AM  
so are you saying that he was clever enough to pull off a multi-year affair or you were too stupid to see it?

Still hoping for another Aubrey/Maturin movie.

Something like 8 episodes. One season (or "series" if you're British).

There should have been more.

Actually, it was the Brits who stole all the vowels. Why else would they spell stuff like colour and aluminium that way?

Not sure if serious, but in case you are, that's an uppercase i. It's Welsh and it's pronounced something like ''you-an'

I remember there being something like four 2 hour TV movies shown on PBS. I enjoyed them and wished they made more.

I like the majority of them. Some of them are a little slow, but an enjoyable series overall. I like the Cachat/Zilwicki books in the related series a little more than the main series.

Yup. It is the Welsh Version of the Scottish Ewan or the English John.
