Speaking of Stephen Fry... I saw a HIV/AIDS documentary he did on cable once a while ago. I have to say up until that point I haven't seen much of his work before that thought I really loved the way he did the documentary series. He was a very thoughtful "every man" while exploring difficult subject matter. I haven't really seen anything else by him on American TV since. I understand he is much more well known in your neck of the woods, Penelope. It reminds me of a Bill Maher monologue: "[Europe] has public intellectuals. We have Dr. Phil." :wall:

Stephen Fry:

I liked him in the film - Peter's Friends.

I like him because he feels inadequate, although he is highly intelligent, and he is famous.....but he blames himself because he is famous for something so trivial.

I like him because he is a gentle and caring soul. But most of all, I like him because he makes me laugh.....at myself.

I suppose that is the 'everyman' syndrome.
