Guilty Pleasures

Obsess over Harry Potter, regale us with Fluffy's latest escapades, ask for advice on what colour to dye your hair, and continue the raging debate of Pirates vs. Ninjas -- whatever strikes your fancy.

Shoujo cosette and the 2000 miniseries (less so because it's less brickaccurate)

I do confess I like things about that miniseries as well...

It was my first exposure to non-musical les mis. I'm very attached to it and watched the full french version for the first time this year. Loved all the brick bits in it but was horrified by the lack of charcterisation in the barricade boys and no fall of the barricade scene. They just kinda forget about it and follow Valjean into the sewers.

The miniseries is probably my favourite non-musical adaptation. I didn't think it was that guilty enough :?

On the very guilty pleasure - Sarichjolras amuses me and I like him far more than most Hohumjolrati I've seen.
Revolution: like Christmas come early only with more death

"She's basically Enjolras meets Amy Pond"
Sings Stars "way better than Russel Crowe"

I wasn't sure if it was or not, I thought I'd just put it there along with Shoujo Cosette which I love
Sarichjolras is wonderful!

Hehe, I don't know if I'd go so far as "wonderful" :D But I'd rather Sarichjolras than most of the ones I've seen. They are none of them true Enjolrati, but he at least made an impact!

Yes, that's probably more apt :D
I mean come on, someone like Maguire is just *bad*. But Sarichjolras is hilarious :D

I don't mind Maguire but he's a bit too superman-ish. I'd like to see what he'd be like in the actual show rather than in a concert.

Yeah that's true.
But I actually like the Courfeyrac when he's being Courfeyrac and not covering for the absent Combeferre (like in the student classroom, for example...)

Oh, I've got one! I like the BBC Les Mis radio drama. :mrgreen: When I listen to it, I'm unsure whether to laugh or cry, or maybe both, but really, I love that thing.

I could probably arrange that. :wink:

The first episode, for now.

Guys, really, it's so fantastic. :lol:

I really want to hear the rest of that radio show too Marius! :) I've listened to part one and loved it!
