Wanted to bring you more photo edits of our spies for MI6, MI5 and Hydra, but WP is not being kind to me today. And I REALLY need a nap (asleep after 2, awake by 4:30 a.m.) so enjoy what’s here, including the Johnny Rivers’ classic, “Secret Agent Man.” ūüėȬ† All the shows are done now, we are pleased with results of DVD sales and also response of those watching¬†themselves larger than life¬†last night on the wall of the theatre, the sound pretty awesome coming through the theatre’s system.¬† ūüėÄ

It’ll take me a couple of days to get up to speed, so bear with me. I have some chores to do related to Pecan Ridge Productions, amongst other things. Hope all are well.

“Twofer” Tuesday: The Soldier and the Spy

Standard

MI-5 and MI-6’s¬†finest: Lucas North of the Security Services and SAS soldier Sgt. John Porter. One spent eight¬†years in a Russian prison,¬† wondering who had sold him out to their enemy as he faced torture, humiliation¬†and deprivation on a daily basis.¬†The¬†other suffered his own hell when a Middle Eastern¬†mission he was heading went pear-shaped, One mate was dead, another in a vegetative state. And signs pointed to Porter’s poor judgement being the cause. ¬†Porter lost the trust and respect of his men, his wife and found his relationship with his only child on shaky ground.

Both men¬†have something to prove to the world–and to themselves. Both have suffered loss¬†and betrayal and¬†are determined to discover the truth.¬†They want the opportunity¬†to¬†make themselves useful, to return to some semblance of normality in their lives. They can be tough and ruthless and at the same time, tender and compassionate. Flawed and damaged though they may be, they are still most worthy of our respect and admiration.¬† Oddly enough, in spite of the fact they are fictional characters,¬†the world feels just a little safer to me with these two fellows on watch.

Lucas and JP are amongst my personal superheroes. Who needs Superman, Batman or Spidey when you have North and Porter??
