After six profitable years working her butt off in a leather microskirt and a strangling-tight bustier - come sun, rain, sleet and hail - in the title role of the fantasy action series "Xena: Warrior Princess" (1995-2001), Lucy Lawless became understandably selective about her projects. This is why she turned down a leading role in "Battlestar Galactica" and the pilot for "Lost in Space" some three years ago. "I wasn't ready to go back into ... [full story]

His wife found it boring, too. They both found it confusing. And, needless to say, they didn't "get it." Making judgments on slivers of evidence, as I have a tendency to do, I would have pegged them as classic "ugly Americans" who demanded American food and familiar comforts ... [full story]

In the 18th century, portraits had flash. Just look at Thomas Gainsborough's popular "The Blue Boy" (circa 1770), not just for the suit, which is conspicuous enough. But there's the dramatic pose, with the haughty hand on hip and the big hat with feather in his other hand. Jump forward a couple of centuries.
