Trivia:
Paul Gross plays Geoffrey Tennant, a stage actor best known (before his mental breakdown) for his performance as Hamlet. In an episode of "Due South" (1994) titled "A Hawk and a Handsaw", Gross' character Benton pretends to be insane, not unlike the character of Hamlet. The name of the episode comes from a line in Hamlet where he tells Rosencrantz and Guildenstern that he can "tell a hawk from a handsaw" - that he is sane.See more »
Quotes:
Cyril:[about Geoffrey] He's doing the rounds. He saw the Chekov on Tuesday. He was at the Dream last night.
Frank:No!
Cyril:Yeah. There he was. Third raw from the back. Head burried in his hands like he lost a brother in the war.
Frank:Crikey. He wouldn't recast, would he?
Cyril:Not the Dream, no. But God knows what he'll do with Oliver's Hamlet. Play the lead himself.
Frank:You think?
Cyril:Oh, why not? It was the play that drow him mad. Seven years ago. I saw it all with me own eyes. Halfway through the gravedigger scene he suddenly went all quiet and pale.
Frank:He went off?
Cyril:Off his nut. Then he leaped.
Frank:Leaped?

VOTE now for DVD release!, 13 September 2005
Author: kmrjo from United States

Go to Amazon.com right now and register your vote for "Slings & Arrows" on DVD! This series has been amazing to watch (it's starting a repeat run on Sundance Channel this Sunday night, Sept.17th) and has reminded me how much I loved Shakespeare long ago. Paul Gross is a wonder to watch and even if you aren't "into" the Bard, you will want to see his performance. All of the performances are top notch and the writing is very real. You can recognize these characters as people you know. The script doesn't allow for easy answers to the questions raised, but gives the characters complexities that I have not seen in a mini-series before. It is smart, well observed and funny as hell! Amazon is looking for "votes" to gage interest in production of a DVD of the first series. I urge you to go there now! You will definitely want to watch this show over and over again.
