Woo-hoo!!  And Mary Queen of Scots was on early this morning, so I was going to try and catch some of it, looking for telltale runny-nosed closeups.  It's well enough I slept through it, though!

I don't have a question handy and I'm not getting much computer time lately, so the floor's open.

Personally, though, I like barton's answer better than mine.

Perhaps if you'd called it "Camel-snot?"

I got nothing.  Which gives me an idea for a trivia challenge:

Name as many films as you can that are about nothing.  I.e. there really isn't all that much plot or specific theme.

You can do it the easy way -- just list some Jim Jarmusch films -- or make it more challenging.  It's up to you.

I would say nothing comes to mind but these did:  Interiors and Five Easy Pieces

  Much ado about nothing, Inland Empire, and one that embraced a certain nothing-ess  but at least was enjoyable Lost in Translation...

Point taken.  I guess "episodic" or "vignettish" could describe TDL, but it's not an "about nothing."   

I would classify TDL as Most Glaring Failure to Cast Luke Wilson.
