Good Morning, World

.
Anybody watching World on Fire, PBS' current WWII miniseries about ordinary folks dealing with wartime? Besides Parker Sawyers and Sense8 star (and my subway pal) Brian J. Smith seen above bringing the homosexual it co-stars a heap of great people like Sean Bean and Helen Hunt and Lesley Manville and ooh Jonah Hauer-King -- he grabbed my attention playing that sweet boy "Laurie" in last year's PBS version of Little Women that also had Maya Hawke and Julian Morris in it...

Weirdly I was already thinking of Julian because "gay stuff" plus "World War II" immediately makes me think of PBS' terrific Man in an Orange Shirt mini-series that had him and Oliver Jackson Cohen, swoon -- PBS is really representing for the period piece gays these days! Good on 'em. Anyway scanning down through the cast list of World on Fire I see it's also got Cold War cool boy Tomasz Kot for an episode and now I need to re-watch Cold War right now too, dammit. The list never ends! Take me away, gay boys...
