The Beginnings of Fangirling and a GIF

This will probably be a bit of a ramble, so prepare yourselves.

Something about this time of year makes me want to watch “The Vicar of Dibley.” The only way to describe this show is hilarious…okay, irreverent is also a good word for the show as well. I came across this show thanks to the suggestions of my Netflix queue (it was available for streaming at the time). If you have never seen it (I’m talking to those who stubble by here for the recipes) and can take some colorful humor, this is a great show.  At some point while I was working my way through VoD, Netflix also recommended a little mini-series called “North & South”. There is a copy of “North & South” in my parent’s home, which I had avoided for years, because I thought it was about the Civil war (although I did think the man on the cover was quite attractive…and I would come to learn that picture doesn’t even do him justice). But, when I read the synopsis Netflix so helpfully provided, I saw that it was based on a novel by Elisabeth Gaskell and I love “Wives and Daughters“. Anyway, I watched “North & South” at that point and became enamored with a certain tall, dark and handsome cotton manufacturer. So, I’m sure that all of you other Richard Armitage fans out there can imagine my excitement when I got to the last couple of episodes of “The Vicar of Dibley,” and saw who the handsome stranger was. 🙂

Well, all of that to say…I thought I would use my still newly acquired gif making skills to pay tribute to one Harry Jasper Kennedy.

It just occurred to me that this sounds a bit like an advertisement for Netflix. While that wasn’t my intention…they did introduce me to the work of one Richard Armitage, so thanks for that.

  1. Thanks for sharing your story. My discovery of Richard Armitage was frighteningly similar to yours, LOL! I was looking for something streaming on Netflix and accidentally found The Vicar of Dibley. As soon as Harry Kennedy opened the door to Sleepy Cottage, I was smitten! I took notice and said, “Who is that?! Lo and behold, I had never seen him before but he seemed somewhat familiar. North & South had been in my Netflix queue for ages and ages but it kept getting pushed back down. When I saw that Richard Armitage starred in N&S, I immediately watched it. The rest is history. My obsession hasn’t dimmed after 2-1/2 years. 😀

    • Frighteningly similar is definitely the case, bccmee! 🙂 Especially because it has been about 2 1/2 years for me as well. What can I say, thank you Netflix! Once I watched “The Vicar of Dibley” and “North & South” I couldn’t get my hands on stuff he was in fast enough. That was also about the time I started lurking on blogs. A couple of months ago I decided it was time to delurk.
