I loved BBC's P&P. I also love your two tassels theory. I am a fan of re watching shows and movies in order to take in every last detail. It is like a giant game of I Spy, with my little eyes, something...
I also love watching people who are watching a series or movie, I know they will love, for the first time. It gives me great joy to see them gasp, scream, cuss, cover their eyes, jump up and down, pace, laugh, cry, etc. I always know when to 'cue my glance'. Lol. I have always loved to people watch, and soak in every detail, in a non creepy way.
*Just to add to this (I was having a hard time getting it out due to ringing phones), my dad was one of my favorites to watch. He always remained calm, cool and collected. Occasionally he would say, "Well, run moron" or something of that nature but he always got the best quizzical expressions. He loved to take it in, could peg a movie in 5 min, and always wanted to discuss something with a more complex plot line. He rarely went over board, but when he did it was comical. He remained convinced that Jeff Bridges was evil until the day he died, thanks to one role. I always laughed at him. No father, it means he did his job, well. When done properly, emotion is evoked. (Smh & giggle)
Haha! I don't think anyone would be surprised (amused, hopefully) if I did burst into a never ending stream of character profanity
