The time has come to talk of many things...

...Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
Of cabbages--and kings--
And why the sea is boiling hot--
And whether pigs have wings.
-Lewis Caroll, 1872.

Recently watched this amazing rendition of Alice in Wonderland on the Sci-Fi channel (I refuse to call it SyFy, sorry guys). So I already had a soft spot for Andrew-Lee Potts, of Primeval, but now I simply adore the guy. Plus, the actress who played Alice, Caterina Scorsone, was fantastic. And the White Knight, played by the wonderful Matt Frewer, was absolutely hilarious. Plus, the reimagining of the story was very well played, I was impressed. Not that I'm really a movie snob or anything, I am a sucker for a good book made into a film/tv program, but this was really great. And very creative.
