    It is May 1660 and the fate of nations is at stake. Mazarin plots, Louis XIV is in love, and Raoul de Bragelonne, son of Athos, is intent on serving France and winning the heart of Louise de la Valliere. D'Artagnan, meanwhile, is perplexed by a mysterious stranger, and soon he learns that his old comrades already have great projects in hand.

    What did you love best about The Vicomte de Bragelonne?

    The way Alexandre Dumas wove characters in this series together.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    D'Artagnan is always my favorite character. He's a bit impulsive.


    Which character – as performed by Simon Vance – was your favorite?

    D'Artagnan.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When D'Artagnan & Raoul (The Vicomt) fought together against the uprising.


    Any additional comments?

    I wanted to read the four Dumas novels in sequence. I naturally thought 10 years after was the second in the series. It was the third.

    In July 1890, Vincent van Gogh went into a cornfield and shot himself. Or did he? Why would an artist at the height of his creative powers attempt to take his life... and then walk a mile to a doctor's house for help? Who was the crooked little "color man" Vincent had claimed was stalking him across France? And why had the painter recently become deathly afraid of a certain shade of blue? These are just a few of the questions confronting Vincent's friends who vow to discover the truth of van Gogh's untimely death.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sacre Bleu?

    Some of the off-color humor


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Any scene with Toulouse-Latrec in it

    leave it. it's perfect.
