LOL Very much so. Such dry wit! I watched an outtake between Olenna and one of the other female actors- one of those who also had a sharp tongue, and it was roll on the floor hilarious. They bandied insults back and forth.

RIP Diana Riggs

Dianna Riggs died at 82. She was one of my favorites. Memorable for her roles on Avengers and Game of Thrones. I loved the way she spoke with a slight look of amusement in both shows.

My mother passed away today

Just reporting that my mother died today. She'd been in nursing care for 5 years and had a stroke on Sunday.

This follows my sister dying 6 months ago.

2020 has been a not very good year for my family.

Yay SpaceX and NASA!

It was so exciting to watch the launch today. The camera behind the astronauts showing what they were seeing made it even more fun for the viewers.
I would like to see the landing of the first stage and hope they show it some time.
Best wishes and safe travels!

It turns out that due to an unintended reaction that another Earth was created, and the two Earths are connected by a short basement passageway in Berlin. What makes the series differen...

Re: When does the Doctor first invite Donna?

I discovered that the segment of the program when the doctor invited Donna was deleted from some showings. So I never got to see it.
