Some days I want to go back to the times when Rumpole of the Bailey was unmissable. But then I remember that where we lived we couldn’t get 21 Jump Street. All those years I could’ve had Johnny Depp in my life, and I was making do with Leo McKern.

Which is not to be casting nasturtiums on Leo McKern. It’s just, you know, Johnny Depp.

Thinking of Leo McKern as Rumpole makes me think of William Shatner as Denny Crane. And now I’m thinking I want to go back to the days when Boston Legal was unmissable.

Moving on.
