Digressions in Les Misérables

Whats your Favorite needless digression in Les Misérables and your least faviroute

I disliked most of the digressions, but a lot of them were interesting so I open the floor to you guys b

Favorite: The Bishop bit

Least faviroute: The bit about the Sewer (So pointless)

I also disliked Waterloo (although I liked some parts of it) and I disliked the bit about the Convant ( It just convinced me in the end that JVJ has allowed cossette to join some weird religion)
Everyone who complains that the movie is too long hasn't read the book.

Favourites: Bishop, Petit-Picpus, the gamins of Paris.

Least Favourites: Waterloo, the Sewers.

I think my preferences are essentially based on whether the digressions help to set the scene and/ or give context to the characters or storyline. But in general, I think the digressions are all slightly too long and rambling. Haha. :lol:

Favorite: The sewers (but I have always liked undergroundy stuff). Least favorite: the untranslatable slang section. Waterloo gets pretty tedious, too.
Don't mess with Texas! We mess up enough by ourselves.
I have actually made bullets like they're doing in my avatar. Then loaded the gun with a ramrod, and shot it. But I'm not feeling real good about guns right now.
