Will you be visiting the Crossness Convivial today, Saturday, the 23rd? Stop by and say hello to @professor-extreme and his ‘Kraken’ hat! See what I did there?
Hmm, but are they though? I think we need @professor-extreme to weigh in and tell us whether he feels insulted and marginalized when a bunch of colonists (as he refers to us Americans, meant purely as a term of endearment, I’m sure), put on Victorian era reminiscent clothing, meet up, and drink tea over discussions of the latest trouble with air…[Read more]
Oops, we did it again *cough, cough, cough*, apologies. Yes, we did it again, changed the site format in a never ending quest for website perfection. Check it out, hit us up with any questions, and if you must hit us, we prefer nerf. Unless you want to hit @professor-extreme, in which case a pillow case full of bricks should do nicely . . .

Hmm, maybe the Channel wasn’t the best place to dump @professor-extreme‘s body . . .
Not too long ago (in our last incarnation to be exact), a certain Professor Buzz-kill (@professor-extreme ), crashed one of our Ripper Street reviews to share with the class the announcement that Ripper Street had been cancelled due to low viewer numbers in the UK. A certain dashing ‘devil-may-care’ hero (I will be reading for the part of dashing hero this evening, thank you), rose to the occasion to contest such wild speculations, and I quote “It would seem folly of the BBC to cancel a British show that has such good numbers in the American resale market” to which in response, this villain of a man, this nefarious professor of which I speak, fairly scoffed the blackheart that he is . . . yeah, okay, full disclosure – I don’t recall the exact exchange but there was definitely some scoffing involved and some asserting by yours truly – what does the BBC know about good TV? They bought Neighbors when Australia grew sick of it for heaven’s sake . . . but I digress. Point is, apparently Amazon has saved Ripper Street. So suck it Professor Doom-and-Gloom, Americans arrive to save the day after Brits drop the ball yet again (um, has the WWII references grown stale do you think?).
In all seriousness, this means another season of Ripper Street and that quite frankly, is excellent news . . .
Strange, I don’t remember much doom saying, Still a good result for decent TV.
I might have exaggerated slightly for um . . . it’s called artistic license, alright? Shuddap . . .
Just watched Season 2, Episode 6 – A Stronger Loving World last night, and I remain amazed by the writing, the sets, the costumes, what a fun show. If you have yet to watch Ripper Street check out season one on Netflix or pick up the DVDs.
Now can someone please tell me where I get myself some Captain Jackson duds . . .
. . . and I confess, I had to turn on the subtitles.
Yep, written in English, a language your continent forgot.
Oh, absolutely. Why, without a doubt every British erudite alive wouldn’t deign to vocalize his dizzying intellect in any dialect but the melodious tones of the cockney dialect, cor blimey, guv’nor.
Mentions test 2!
