But 12 Angry Jurors is a complicated hair show?
For me it’s a complicated hair show. I have very long fine hair. I’m a bit matronly especially in the costume they gave me. We’ve set the show in 1968. So I decided to do a sort of French twist, which is harder with hair this long. It requires washing my hair, letting it dry to the stage of ever so slightly damp, using my circa 1982 hot rollers for some volume, then backcombing, hair spraying, twisting and pinning. So many pins, and so much hairspray.

My last show only required a braided ponytail.

The French Twist is perfect for that era. A bit of hairstyling history: In 1968, 1969 and 1979, before prom, hairdressers told the girls NOT to wash their hair if they wanted an updo.

My hair is fine too, also and I never could get it into a French Twist. French braids I could do.

I remember Waters narrating a documentary on the Salton Sea. He did it well and showed me that he isn't some dummy.

John Waters gave a talk at the Guthrie decades ago. I had tickets and wished to do him honor, so I went to the salon ahead of time and had my very long hair ratted and upswept into a postively ginormous bouffant. I was going to weave a string of battery-operated lights through it, too, but the stylist demurred.

White plastic go-go boots, a lace skirt, and a crop top, underneath which was one of Frederick's of H-Wood's trick bras, uplifting my natural assets to similarly exaggerated dimensions, to coordinate with the high hair.

My date showed up, looked me over, and cautiously asked, "How did you manage to get your breasts to do that?"

We strolled the sculpture garden prior to the talk, and I got more than a few double takes. I brought a gift for Mr. Waters, too: a package of chocolate fish produced at the Ambrosia Chocolate Factory in Milwaukee, where Jeffrey Dahmer had been employed. (This was only a few months after he'd been arrested.)

Those were the days. And Waters is a hell of a story-teller, natch. Best part: he told us of a(nother) fabulous gift he'd received from a couple of fans: a jar of soil dug up from John Wayne Gacy's front yard. My date was floored: his former girlfriend and her buddy had sent that to Waters. Talk about coincidence...

There’s a cunning plan to bring back Blackadder for fifth season
:snippity:
There haven't been any fresh Blackadder episodes since the 2000 one-off, Blackadder Back and Forth, and fans have longed for a fifth season ever since, with their hopes continually dashed. But now it looks like it might actually happen. Atkinson, Tony Robinson (who played the dogsbody Baldrick), Stephen Fry (Melchett), and Laurie have reportedly discussed reprising their roles and are eager to do so. Fresh episodes are supposedly being written.

So just what might a fifth season of this offbeat comedy series be like? Co-writer Richard Curtis (who wrote the new Danny Boyle film Yesterday) has said that the original series "was a young man's show, criticizing older people, saying how stupid those in authority were." So this time around, per reports, Blackadder will be much older: an aging lecturer at university, perennially irritated by his young students. Let's hope the new season continues the tradition of tailoring the theme song's lyrics to each episode.
