Some of you may know that there was a tv show, in the 1980s, called “Beauty & the Beast”. It starred Ron Perlman and Linda Hamilton (yes, THAT Ron and Linda – before they were well known). It had a entire fandom of literate women able to quote famous poetry – an unusual claim to fame, to say the least.
Admittedly, I liked the show myself, but I particularly enjoyed it for another reason also. At the time, I worked in downtown Los Angeles, and many of the New York street scenes were places near our office. I could watch the show, then walk down the street the next day at lunch and see where they had filmed!
And, by the way, George R. R. Martin was one of the show’s writers (yes, THAT George).
