All right, as much as as I loathe the possibility of anyone, at all, being tortured by my so-called government because they're terrorists and they allegedly have no rights ... I was really, really hoping for some Sark torture. I love how Sark
But yeah, my hopes were dashed, and episode rather perfunctory anyway. Next week had better be where it's at.
I brought along The Once and Future King as plane reading today -- nice handy mass market paperback I had been meaning to read. Wound up positively devouring the last few pages in the cab on the way back to Manhattan.
Setting aside, oh, the entire contents of books two through four, which are still percolating in my brain or somesuch (and satyadasa, if you never read this book as a child, you should have done, because the conclusion could have come from your lips except for being better written) -- why has no one written Kay/Wart slash? Why? Why? *shakes the Internet, turns it upside-down, returns to own Word document*
It's really not all that different from the Disney Sword in the Stone, as I seem to recall it, save this one major difference. Movie!Kay is obnoxious, and movie!Wart hates him. Book!Kay is obnoxious ... and book!Wart loves him.
And he says so.
