Hello there :)

Thanks for your message. I'm always happy to make new friends and I've seen you commenting on [livejournal.com profile] belladonna77's journal, so hello and welcome.

Besides, anyone who likes the lovely James Badge Dale is onto a winner with me! I haven't caught any of 'Rubicon' yet but it's supposed to be starting over here in the next couple of months so I am waiting with baited breath. I'll be interested to know what you think of 'The Pacific'; it's not an easy watch but it's very, very good. I will also be interested to hear what you think of the BBC's 'Sherlock'; I really enjoyed it but haven't seen the 2009 film yet (it's on the list!).

Anyway, I shall definitely add you. Thanks for seeking me out and I look forward to getting to know you!

Hello again!

Thank you for your reply and for friending me! :) I'm sorry that I wasn't able to reply much earlier. I had a heck of a time troubleshooting my laptop this weekend, so I put everything on the backburner. Ugh. :P

I look forward to seeing what you think of 'Rubicon'. Some people have complained about the slow pacing, but hopefully, you'll enjoy it. The build-up is worth it, IMO. :) 'The Pacific' finally got released here in the US, so I'm going to rent it on Netflix. I confess - I'm usually not one for military dramas, although I've seen a few like 'Black Hawk Down' and 'Saving Private Ryan'. But I've heard rave reviews about it, and of course, my growing fondness for JBD has made me even more curious to see it, *lol*. So, I'm looking forward to it - and here's hoping I have the stamina to get through all 10 episodes! Wow, next to that, 'Sherlock' seems like a walk in the park with its episode count. ;D

Anyway, I'll add you in right now, and I hope to talk to you soon! :D

And thank you for friending me back :D I hope you've got your laptop sorted now, it's a nightmare when things all go wrong with the technology!

I'm really looking forward to 'Rubicon'. I've heard that the first few episodes are a bit of a slow-burner but that it picks up the pace after a while. I am just waiting to get a start date now... it might be after Christmas for us. I think if you have made it through 'Black Hawk Down' and 'Saving Private Ryan' you will be fine with 'The Pacific'. I did shed a few tears at one episode... but I shan't say anything else until you've seen it! You'll fly through 'Sherlock' though, LOL!

Hope you've had a good day :D

Oh, you're totally welcome to the add! :D

Gosh, did you hear, though? 'Rubicon' was canceled by the network, so we won't be getting Season 2. :( Very disappointing, but I suppose it's somewhat expected since the ratings were never that high over here. It's really too bad that AMC wasn't willing to give it a second chance, though. :\

On the flip side, thanks to the Veteran's Day holiday, I was able to tape a complete rerun of 'The Pacific' this past week, so now, I just have to find time to watch it in its entirety. The only problem is that my taping cut off one of the episodes, so I'll have to find that one online somehow. But hey - at least now I don't have to wait to see it on rental! :)

I heard about 'Rubicon' yesterday! It always seemed like a bit of a slow-burner and I guess networks want shows that are mega-hits from the outset. It is a shame though. It still hasn't started over here, I'm on watch for it as I think it will be soon. We'd better still get it or else I'll be cross!

Good news about being able to tape 'The Pacific'! I'm sure you'll be able to find the missing bit of that episode somewhere :)
