m31andy: (Man from UNCLE Al)
I came across a couple of old Man from UNCLE eps on VHS the other day, so I re-set up my video play to see what was on it. Surprisingly, one of them was The Project Strigas Affair, which is most famous for being the first time ever William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy appeared on screen together (mere months later, they were starring in Star Trek)

But oh, I can see why folk see the slash in this show. Take this particular exchange:

Scene: After the party where Mr. Donfield has been asked to 'show a weakness for women and strong martinis, Mr. Donfield is feeling a little bit the worse for wear and Mrs. Donfield is rather upset.

Mrs. Donfield: I never should've let him out of my sight, I should've known better."

Mr. Donfield: Oh, sweetie. It was just awful, You have no..." To Napoleon "What's our next move?"

Napoleon To Mrs. Donfield: "I know how you feel, Anne."

Mrs. Donfield: "Do you really, Mr. Solo?"

Knock at the door, Napoleon holds out a hand to silence the Donfields

Napoleon opens the door and Illya, still in disguise, walks in.

Illya: Kurasov insisted I spend the night at the Embassy.

*grin*

(You can see the exchange here, at You Tube, it's about five minutes in)

Ah, much better. The beer festival has been over three days and here is my review. Not bad eh? Thanks as usual for those who kept me propped up: [livejournal.com profile] clanwilliam and [livejournal.com profile] gmh (and friends) on the Tuesday and [livejournal.com profile] sethur, [livejournal.com profile] cuvalwen and [livejournal.com profile] ciya on the Friday night. Though, yes. Next year we're definitely going to eschew Friday night and do an afternoon instead.

I think I really ought to get the 2006 notes out a lot quicker!!! As usual, official tasting notes are in italics. Thanks go to my work colleagues who joined me on the Thursday night and to [livejournal.com profile] cuvalwen and [livejournal.com profile] quirkus who also came along. My little sis was my partner in crime on the Friday, where we didn't get so much reviewed as we were too busy trying the best of Thursday and the wonderful mead on sale!

Well, having not written this when I should have done, I’m getting round to it now. And as it is the 3rd August 2005, and I’m off to the 2005 GBBF tomorrow, I thought I better get this posted!

Tasting notes, therefore are going to go out the window – I’m bad enough remembering the quality of a pint the next day, let alone a year later! But, a run down of what I drank, and what I indicated it was like.

Partners in crime were [livejournal.com profile] quirkus, who entertained me muchly and [livejournal.com profile] ian_wyrdness who rambled around looking lost for a while before finding me. I do seem to remember bumping into some of the ICSF lot at some point, but my memory may have failed me.

Anyhow, on with the beer:

And that concludes the 2004 GBBF review.

Well, beer festival was fun. Drank far too much beer. Met up with [livejournal.com profile] cowfishbilly and other old college mates. I, of course, had agreed to meet with [livejournal.com profile] cuvalwen at 2pm anyway. Steve turned up (lj journal to follow, he assures!!!) and then Ralphie from work turned up. It was very strange at times, three worlds colliding! Cuvalwen and Steve came back to mine afterwards for pizza and "The Wicker Man". A good night had by all, I reckon.

Anyway. tasting notes )

I was having regrets at not getting through more of the beers. Now I have looked through these, and added in the one I never found out what it was, the second half of banana bread I had, the one Steve bought me and the finishing of Adams pint of banana bread that he didn't like (did I mention that I liked that beer????) I think I would have had to be carried back if I had drunk any more!

Oh, and I better mention the:
Scottish Courage, Imperial Stout 10.0%. No tasting notes for this, it just mentions the fact it is rare in cask. There is a reason for this! It is absolutely gorgeous - a think black liquid which is almost chewable. It has the taste of burnt chocolate and whiskey. You can't drink much though. I restricted myself to three mouthfuls from someone else's half. And I'm dead proud of myself there!
