      beautiful windows and heavy curtains

      The beginning of the digression - my girlfriend is a bit rotten and likes this kind of drama very much. In her own words, it is: "I love picking up soap or something!" And she doesn't like the Lord of the Rings, so she can't say she doesn't like it, use "I don't understand" in her words. I took her to the premiere of The Hobbit in high spirits, but she fell asleep! ! ! In fact, it wasn't just her that day, the three girls who went with her all yawned. When they appeared, they just commented...

      Love to drink water

       For a female man like me who buckles her feet, picks her nose and shaves her legs, the tune of love, love, death, crying, and rolling on the floor is not my thing at all.
      This is the case in life, and it is the same when choosing TV and movies. I feel that it is unpleasant to watch...annoying...doesn't worry...

      Some loves we are still strangers

        After watching the three episodes in one breath, I was so impressed that I was about to be internally injured by the two old grandpas!
        When Stewart opened the first episode and said, "oh, my god!" with his perhaps inflexible but absolutely ecstatic waist, I had a hunch that the show was definitely going to be to my liking.
         It is said that there is no urine in the whole show. Indeed, watching Freddy and Stewart, who are two live-action treasures, are so cheap and cute, where...

      Q&A with Ian McKellen about the show

      Q: What drew you to Vicious?

      A: Derek and I arranged a reading with friends. We went round to Derek's and read the script, and our friends laughed all the way through. I thought, “Aha, it works.” Its aim is to entertain people by making them laugh, and once I realised it did, I was very glad to do it.

      Q: Please describe your character for us.

      A: Freddie is a pain in the neck, but he's also a survivor. He's game. He's always up for it. He is also honest and is...

      Emma, ​​Gandalf the Gay and the Master all starred in love, arrogant, arrogant, poisonous, and black-bellied. They were so cruel that I laughed so hard that I wanted to kneel down for the two old masters! This is Sir Ian and Sir Derek, they are truly national treasures, jazz, and peerless gays.
