Good ol' Exposition.
Good thing he has a webcomic author who has all of his lines scripted for him, and doesn't have to remember all of those lines himself or who knows how that might have come out! :D
I've probably already said this, but I miss old Exposition. This one seems like a little kid. Anyway, looking forward to whatever odd twists the rest of the play takes.
There's an odd youthfulness to the face, you're right. I thought it would work when I first saw series four, but alas.
Hm. How to make someone change up their glasses? I could always have him revert to his caveman incarnation like Thompson and Thomson in the Tintin book "The Land of Black Gold"...
Thompson and Thomson turned into cavemen? Interesting. I'm really gonna have to read the Tintin books one of these days. I loved the cartoon on Nickelodeon, growing up. :)
You've not read them? How? What? How?
Maybe it's a part of the slightly-more-European thing in Canada. Or it's just having started on them when I was six (almost 30 years ago now!).
But man, Tintin is awesome. Just astonishingly good. I'm still finding new things and new appreciation for the stuff after all this time. Two I'd disliked for ages (or at least thought lacking for their less plot-driven tales), "Tintin in Tibet" and "The Castiafiore Emerald" have come 'round to being pretty much my absolute faves.
If you're going to start somewhere with them... well, it's a question of whether you want to read them in order or with an eye to having a good gateway. If the latter, it's pretty hard to go wrong with the double-book for "The Secret of the Unicorn" and "Red Rackham's Treasure." If you're adamant about reading them in order you could start with "The Cigars of the Pharoah," but better to save the early albums for later on.
