Although, the type of character and their appeal appears to have dwindled in the past few years, as like music and film, TV suffers from writers and actors portraying the same types and using the same lines to exhaustion.

Comment - Scolari's Stoke bailout fails to hide Chelsea's deficiencies

Jan

Hamlet always had a trick up his sleeve to exacting revenge against evil Uncle Claudius who slayed Hamlet's father in the Shakespearian play. Feigning madness and creating that false disposition unnerved his opponent.

The Fog of War film review

Jan
16

Reflecting on his life, 85 year old Robert McNamara does not apologize for being succesful. And he certainly was: already a millionaire, he quit his job as the president of Ford to accept JFK's offer of secretary of state.
