I also missed posting my lie die! But on Friday evening I did watch series 5, ep 1 (kindly made avaialble to me by a fellow Boglie! ) and my lie die for that episode was the look on Archie's face when they found out that the bomb wasn't defused... and was actually ticking!
I hear ya, Mariet. My favorite part of that whole scene, though, was when Duncan was yelling at his uncle on the phone that they had no tools. I can't remember all of what he said, but I do remember "...a screwdriver, and that's IT!" Hamish acted that so well and was so cute at that moment. Cracked me up, he did. ;D
Yes, that was truly a classic scene. Too bad it was only one brilliant scene in an otherwise (I thought) mediocre episode. When I watched episode 3:10 the next day, it strongly reminded me of how the more "classic" series were full of scenes like that...
I enjoyed the later series, but they just never reached that original level anymore.
..and at the end when they are waiting for Duncan to come out with 'the colours' and the camera man did such a great job of slowing it down giving the effect of Duncan coming out sooooooooo slowly and the others wondering if he would make it in time!!!!
I enjoyed series 5 too, it had many great moments. It's just that when I compare it to earlier series, almost every scene in those was a "classic" and I can't say the same for series 5 and later. But that's just my opinion, of course!
That would be true for me, yes! But maybe that has also to do with which series you watched first -- for Boglies who started watching with the later series, those will probably be the classic ones to them!
I still feel sad that, somewhere towards the end of the last epi, Molly didn't have an email, phone call or letter from Archie and Lexie (in NZ) - it could have been so easily included I would have thought!! So sad but too late now!!
When you think of it Paul, it doesn't really ring true does it. I mean if my children were across the other side of the world, I'm sure I would still be in touch with them. Molly was so close to Archie and he was so fond of her, even protective, he would have been in constant touch.
Maddie, I love that scene. That was a time when I think Alastair broke character. The way he was laughing at Duncan when they were on the sofa in the bar seemed much more like Alastair than Archie. Very funny scene, and AM was SOOOO cute! ::heavy sigh::
