man bag

Somehow I missed a crucial part of Prison Break (either tonight or last week). So can someone please tell me where the creepy n malevolent Theodore 'T-Bag' Bagwell has gone? He's such a scumbag I can't help but be attracted to him. Played with exquisite sleaziness by the talented and compelling Robert Knepper, last time I saw T-Bag he'd managed to escape his captors (yet again) then track one of 'em down at a hotel to reclaim the stash of cash they'd tried to swindle him out of. But how'd he manage to get himself free? (I know I said he's compelling, but I missed that bit too). Did he cut his own hand off?

I saw Robert Knepper interviewed last year (must've been for the "Making of" special) and I was so taken by him and how different he is to the character he plays. (Yeah, I know he's an actor, but still - with some TV performers there's not that much difference). Tonight when I was checking his list of screen credits on imdb I discovered he'd also been in Carnivale. I was impressed by him in that too, but had no idea it was the same actor.

So, please, can anyone help out and fill me in? I'll be very grateful, but a word of warning, if they've killed him off I don't wanna know...

Hi Nash,
Sorry I can't help you out here...

Don't worry Nash, T Bag is still alive and well - hhmmmmm well enough for someone who has had his hand cut off twice that is. Yes, he got away from the heater by cutting his hand off AGAIN (I'm afraid this is getting a little too much fo me!).
He wasn't shown at all last night so when you last saw him at the hotel room was when we all last saw him. Hard to imagine how this one's gunna end!

Aha! Thanks Campbell - what a relief to know he's still around. They really push the far-fetched thing to the limit, but we keep coming back...

Miss Litzi,
I think you'd like this show (based on your love of a good thriller/crime mystery). Have you seen any eps? btw, there are a couple of Aussie actors in it too

I can't believe you're getting into this as well you ol' hornbag. I have to admit that R gets into it too - for different reasons. First off, I think he liked the tatt that was used to escape, now I think he's just addicted. So I sat down and gave it a try, it wasn't so bad. In fact, I could get addicted but I'm resisting. The Biggest Loser and Extreme Makeover are my pet addictions.

Oh Sheila,
How lovely to hear from you. So when can we expect a post from you on one of your pet addictions?

Hi Sheila,
It's nice to see your smiling face again! Nash and I have been creating havoc on your Site again...perhaps you ought to come take a peak.



Hi Nash,
Pardon me; Have I seen any "eps"?? Maybe I have and didn't realize it...
Do the Aussie actors have lovely accents?

Hi ML,
"eps" is short for episodes (we shorten heaps of words here and "heaps" means lots!). The Aussie actors in Prison Break use American accents so you'd probably never know where they're from!

So Nash, The Australians you refer to, are they Burrows and the woman Schofield (spelling?) married so she could get her greencard and provide him with certain favours (and for everyone else reading, they are not THOSE sort of favours - he is much too much of a gentleman!)? Are there any others?

Hi Campbell,
Yep, you got it - Dominic Purcell plays Burrows. Among other things he was in an ABC series a few years ago called RAW FM and Holly Valance is an ex-Neighbours starlet who also had a 5 minute pop career. No others that I know of...

Thanks Nash, I know who to come to for my Logies and Oscars goss!!
Have a great weekend.

Hi Nash,
Thanks for the explanation. Boo! Why in the world are Australian actors using AMERICAN accents? Yours is SO much easier on the ears. Doesn’t it seem foreign to you?

Apparently Americans find it hard to understand the Aussie accent. That used to be the case anyway...

In Prison Break the two characters I refer to aren't Australian so that explains the lack of Aussie accents. Actually the Holly Valance character (Nika?) is Russian I think

Hi Nash,
Okay, so we’re right back to what I asked you before; do you think I’d have a hard time understanding you if we were to speak to one another? Maybe after some shrimp on the barbie, a few Tequila Slammers and nibbling on a caterpillar that’s been marinating in Tokay for a while, we’d have no problems whatsoever communicating! Russian accents might be difficult for anyone other than another Russian to comprehend.

When you first came to the U.S., did YOU have a hard time understanding what people were talking about? Sometimes “valley girl speak” leaves me scratching my head in wonderment, so I can imagine it’d throw anyone who wasn’t brought up in California for a loop.

Ha Miss Litzi!
Perhaps we should both adopt Russian accents - or whatever accent results from all that Tequila n Tokay. (I'll skimp the shrimp thanks - I'm vegetarian). You wouldn't have any trouble understanding me at all because I'm so well spoken (la de da. LOL). If I'm wrong we'll just go back to the written word, which reminds me to tell you how impressed I am by your ability to pick up the Aussie vernacular (arse being my favourite example!)

No problems for me understanding American accents - Australia has been bombarded by US culture for decades (we have more US stuff on telly and in the cinema than local content! Lots of Pommy stuff too!)

This is becoming longer than a post and I haven't even had breakfast yet. (How would you like your eggs? Over easy*, sunnyside up*...?)

*these are things I've learned watching American shows/films!

I have this weird attraction to him too, every since he made those boys follow him around by hanging on to his pocket.

Hi Nash,
Tossing back Tequila would bring out a Hispanic accent and Tokay would add a bit of Hungarian flavor to our speech. So combine the two and what would we have? We wouldn’t be able to understand ourselves or each other! No, senor.

Crikey my arse! Alright, mate! It’s rather strange that Australia’s been bombarded with U.S. Culture (huh?) for decades, both on the telly (like that??) and the cinema (and that??) but the U.S. hasn’t done much to offer its citizens a view of Australian Culture and way of life. The ONLY Aussie accent I ever hear is for Qantas Airways. This seems a bit askew and one-sided; Australia is not some microscopic island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean that no one’s ever heard of, let alone visited. I for one would like to see some of your telly shows (and not 20-year old reruns) and flicks, as well as some of the foods that are unique to Australia (you can keep your kangaroo pet food, thanks) and hear more about what’s happening on your lovely Continent.

Wow, I’m impressed with your knowledge of how to prepare eggs, American style. How about poached or shirred? I think that’s Pommy, isn’t it? Hasta la vista, baby! Thanks, Arnold Schwartzenegar!

Hi Marc,
Thanks for dropping by. Yeah, there's something about the guy that intrigues me...

Miss Litzi,
I love poached eggs, but I've never heard the word shirred (ahem)

April 24, 2007 3:08 PM

Hi Nash,
“Shirred” (to bake) means that eggs are removed from their shell and baked in a ramekin until set. Quite posh...

Did you realise that Rob K. played Deanna Troi's bondmate in a very early episode of "Star Trek: The Next Generation", the episode called "Haven"?

Hi Therin,
Well no, I didn't know - although I did check out his list of credits at imdb, but there are so many of them. What a wonderful, prolific actor. I'm smitten! Pity he apparently bats for the other team
