    For everyone like me who thought his name was “Mc-Fad-en”… I just went back and rewatched the ‘05 trailer for P&P and the trailer announcer definitely skims over that second ‘y’ and it SOUNDS like “Mc-Fad-en” unless you’re REALLY listening for it. So, that explains our Bernstein/Bernstain Bears-esque collective mispronunciation. Sidebar, that trailer holds up GREAT even if it’s a very pop-y/rom com-y interpretation of the film (which also holds up great). (The way they cut the trailer is def trying to imply that Georgiana is some romantic rival/an attractive and vital version of Anne de Bourgh?) And I see you, PM Love Theme from Love Actually.

A lot of guilt free voyeurism of people in castles, penthouses, private jets and yachts. But under it all is a very dysfunction family who's money has warped them all. Cant wait for season 3!

    I first discovered him (and Keeley) like 20 years ago when MI-5 came out (original UK name is Spooks). They are both fantastic... I actually just started re-watching MI-5 last weekend... forgot how they were just babies haha! Matthew is amazing in Ripper Street... which is one of my favorite shows and I see that Netflix took it off... bummer! Thanks for having him on, Seth!

      @Jillian Beach I know. But it’s usually “flexing your acting muscles” or “showing your chops”. “Flexing your chops” conjures up the image of a guy with a really jacked jaw.
