Inspired by a “Treat Truck” advertisement for a popular dog treat here in the US, I decided to make one just for the MK fandom.

Anyone care to take a road trip in His truck? It goes without saying that The Man himself will be on board to hand out the treats personally.

Pahaha!

britishdetectives:

I don’t really need to go on, do I?

Good God, man! Yes you DO. And absolutely with the “slo-mo” lips there! Entirely wasted on a grumpy tantrum. Still, Foyle has to have some outlet, I suppose, considering they’re never used for kissing in the series.
#Q: How much kissing is there in Foyle’s War? #A: Funk Hole

Just watched Still Life (1983) all the way through. Reckon I deserve a medal, given the depressing subject matter.

HOWEVER, on the plus side, The Man is minus vest throughout, and dangerously mouthwatering. All caramel-coloured. Like those delicious sweeties in the advertYum.

Going to help him with his exercises later. *sigh*

Unsurprisingly, this is my favourite exchange in the whole film. 

Is that Baby Paul McGann?!

Adorable!

The chicken sitting in the oven on a brick. Still cracks me up after all these years!

… a gash on his fore-noggin. It’s hard to see in the gifs, but very evident in the daylight scenes in the film.

So he has, bd! And here’s the evidence. I’d never noticed that before.

Would any knowledgeable person care to wade in with an explanation? Is it meant to be the war-injury that affected his eyesight? Or has MK been coshed on set by a jealous husband?

*colour me volunteer nursey*

Yep. Plot specific war injury which caused his short-sightedness.

Even so - and there’s been a lot of back-and-forth about this (for which much thanks), as @britishdetectives says, and as the gifs show, the “war wound” seems to have healed up in later shots. The story’s set in the 1920s. War’s been over several years. And no mention of an eye injury in the book (I nominate jillyfern to check her copy ;0) Jury’s still out.

imagine your icon secretly getting in your bed and cuddling with you while you’re sleeping.

Oh. I’d best change mine, then, it’s just a tin hat. LOL

I recommend a photo of the Beloved. Obviously :^D

Nah. Doesn’t work for “selfies”either.

George Briggs reminds me of a little blind mole, blinking in the daylight. I love how he doesn’t even see them at first when he opens the door.

Who did he think they were? Jehovah’s Witnesses? :^D

It’s too bad MK got type-cast as a bad guy for so long (not that I’m complaining; everybody knows how much I dig Rrrroman) because the man can do comedy. He should’ve done more of it as a young man, imho.

britishdetectives said: Such a cutie pants, even in those ridiculous glasses with a major head boo-boo.

Well, even with a bad mustache and bad hair, he’s still a cutie pants. What could possibly make him an un-cutie pants? I’m thinking nothing.

AA here:
Right. So, in Thespian terms, there’s “standard” and “deluxe” with any scene.

  • Standard = ordinary actor
  • Deluxe = Michael Kitchen

What we’ve got here is the definite ‘deluxe doobrey of door-opening and saying no thank you’, whereby His Kitchen-ness not only plays a mole, but also turns his molehill into a Munro. It makes me smile, the way he milks the absolute bejeesus out of any scene.
#MK: More Bang for your Screen Buck

Once again, AA manages to make a standard, ordinary, everyday post into the deluxe version that it always could be ;O)

Dear AA: for us Colonials, please translate the meaning of ‘doobrey’ and ‘Munro’ in this context. Brain is foggy this morning.

A ‘munro’ is a small mountain or hill. I figured a ‘doobrey’ (I always thought it was ‘doobry’, but maybe I’m wrong?) is another word for ‘doohda’, ‘doohickey’, ‘thingamajig’, watchamacallit’. My father-in-law used to call it a ‘thing-bob’, short for ‘thingamabob’. It’s all the same. 

Unless a ‘doobrey’ is something altogether different, LOL.

Oops! Just realized this was addressed to AA. Didn’t mean to step on your post, abjectadmirer! I seem to be doing that a lot lately. Mea culpa.

:O(

Either spelling, gals. Step on my post by all means. Just don’t step on any doodahs or eyes will water.

George Briggs, excited about being sixty pounds richer!

MK is, as britishdetectives says, “acting his little heart out”. I had forgotten about the glasses-falling-off-his-head bit. So cute.

Adorable Teddy Bear Kitchen. Haven’t slept with a bear in years, but this one I’d make an exception for.

Beautifully acted. I wouldn’t be surprised if that was his own blood, as that sort of rope is very scratchy and hard, but one hopes it was makeup.

Mmmm. His own blood, you say? *Slurrrrppp!*

Captain Townsend is nearly lynched in this scene from The Hanging Gale, 1995. I’m genuinely worried about Michael Kitchen’s neck, but his hair has looked worse.

I used to wonder why he wasn’t fighting for his life more, but then I realized that Capt. Townsend probably wouldn’t have minded dying.

Very good character development, imho. 

In those days, any Englishman taking a job in Ireland probably had a death wish.  As time wears on, his survival instinct warms up, though, I think. Trouble is, he self-medicates with alcohol far too much.

Cheers!

britishdetectives:

Poor Captain Townsend, it clearly hurts to get his shirt back on after an attempted lynching. Feel free to go without, Mr. Kitchen. 

Gaaah! You’re trying to kill me. Pass the ice bucket. No challenge necessary.
