I watched it, and I can't help but think it would have ended so much better had Laurie gone off with Jud Fry instead of insipid, airheaded Curley.

There's an entire song about how all the townspeople will mourn Jud when he's "daid," but the ending of the whole movie involves him being quickly shoved out of sight, probably headfirst into an unmarked grave, so the clean and pretty people can have a sham murder trial and let the prom king and queen saunter off in their fringe-top surrey.

I really think it would have been a far more interesting exploration of the characters. He was just lonely and misunderstood, and he had more genuine feeling for Laurie than the guy who looks like he has to put his hair in rods every night before bed. Tormented anti-heroes are so much more fascinating than patented, squeaky-clean guys in white duds.

Also Scott Cohen (see icon) played a pedophile councilman on tonight's premiere of Criminal Intent. It was weird seeing him a decade after 10th Kingdom, but he's just as rakish and good-looking as ever. That's probably going to be the first thing I do after finals are over--sit down and watch that entire miniseries like it's 2001 again. Oh yes.
