Anyone Who Doesn't Know Why I Love James?

James - I'm a fan
... Well, I suppose none of you fall into that category.

But if you had any doubts as to why I follow his career, then you should watch Warehouse 13 (4:11).  The first time I saw James act it was season 7 Spike, and I still think he stepped off the TV screen and straight into my heart!

Watching him on Warehouse 13 (not a show I know at all), made me remember again what a great, and fun, actor he truly is.  I also loved the fact that he was able to tease one of the characters about his large forehead (Angel, where are you?), and laughed off vampires as the heroes of Gothic stories, and teenage girls dreams.  Add to that, he managed to find yet another brilliant exit ... brilliant writing, brilliant acting ... great fun.

And, if anyone doesn't know what to do with "that" painting, I can find a space on my wall, very easily!

I so wish that he could get his own show ... he so, so deserves it.

It was great fun!

It was brilliant to see him on screen ... and being good at his job.

He really was delicious, wasn't he? I agree with you - we all need more James on our screens. He is sooo worthy.

It just looked as if he was enjoying the role, as well.

He certainly was the enjoyable part of that episode.

He was brilliant ... great to watch

Haven't seen the episode yet but I heard he did a great job.

Warehouse 13 is a really good show. I have the first three seasons on DVD. It's a show that the whole family could watch together. No sex, no bad language. Lots of comedy and action.

I don't watch much TV ... but from what I saw it looks like a show I could get into.

James was great - so prepare to enjoy ... and love him all over again!

I think he could have made an excellent (if shorter than he should be) Harry Dresden. It was a shame he didn't get that part.

I have his CDs on in the car all the time. To me (other than the height) he would have been brilliant.

He has such a great range of talent ... and looked like he was having fun, as well.

The height might have been an issue for those who had already internalized an image of tall, skinny Harry. I can see why it may have been a disconnect. But the guy they chose wasn't tall and skinny either!

He did seem to be having fun with the character. It was good to see that.

I never saw any of the series, but I can't imagine that the actor captured Harry as well as James does in the CDs.

I'd looked forward to the TV series - not because I've ever heard James read the stories, or because I'm a great fan of the book series, but because I thought it would make great TV if done right. I guess it wasn't done right, because I lost interest pretty quickly. Don't even know how long it lasted, but I'm guessing only one season.

I heard a CD before I knew anything about the TV series (or had read the book) ... Thanks James!

I then read all the books, and heard all the CDs (well, I tried to listen to Ghost Story, but couldn't relax) ... so I guess my reaction to not hearing James meant that the TV series, as it was, wouldn't be for me!

"Warehouse 13"?
1st-May-2013 06:44 am (UTC)
*g* ... Not a show I watch either ... but had to, as James was in it!

What painting?
1st-May-2013 06:45 am (UTC)
Just part of the storyline, so I was vague for fans of the show.

I have always thought James was fantastic at every role he plays and I wish he had had more opportunities to prove himself more, as a star of his own show or in movies, cos he really is utterly believable in everything I've seen him in.

Is it a show you watch?

I enjoyed the show - but James was truly epic ... and I believe will be in further episodes (at least one ... with Tony Head!)
