They that have power to hurt, and will do none,
That do not do the thing they most do show,
Who, moving others, are themselves as stone,
Unmoved, cold, and to temptation slow;
They rightly do inherit heaven's graces,
And husband nature's riches from expense;
They are the lords and owners of their faces,
Others, but stewards of their excellence.
The summer's flower is to the summer sweet,
Though to itself, it only live and die,
But if that flower with base infection meet,
The basest weed outbraves his dignity:
For sweetest things turn sourest by their deeds;
Lilies that fester, smell far worse than weeds.

Here is a record of all the fanlistings I have joined, subjects of which I am a connoisseur ;)

Showing listings under the TV Shows category...

As Time Goes By

Subject: As Time Goes By

Bleak House

Subject: Bleak House
Reason: The BBC's 2005 adaptation.

Dr Who

Subject: Dr Who

Fawlty Towers

Subject: Fawlty Towers
Reason: Arguably the greatest British sitcom of all time.

Jane Eyre

Subject: Jane Eyre
Reason: First broadcast by the BBC in 2006, this adaptation starred Ruth Wilson and the delectable Toby Stephens. With a simmering passion running throughout the series, it's the most faithful version I've seen.


Subject: Poirot
Reason: I used to watch these adaptations of Agatha Christie's books when they were first broadcast and adored the authentic period atmosphere combined with the mystery of a murder or two. David Suchet is Poirot to me.


Subject: Spooks
Reason: The BBC's slick spy series. Fast, intriguing and (until recently) intelligent telly. Beautifully shot.

The A-Team

Subject: The A-Team
Reason: I used to watch this series as a child and remember it with nostalgia. Pure, unadulterated entertainment. Fast, furious and fun.

The Catherine Tate Show

Subject: The Catherine Tate Show
Reason: Am I bovvered? What a fucking liberty! 'Course I am: it's brilliant. Or rather, I should say, Catherine Tate is brilliant.

The Worst Witch

Subject: The Worst Witch
Reason: TV Film of my favourite book as a child. I remember waiting for this films first broadcast at Hallowe'en and loving it.
