Dear Charles,

I still love you. Know that.

This series is terrible. Very pretty to look at--I sure hope you were able to have some fun and enjoy the place while you were shooting it. It's nice to know you've had crappy jobs just like me!

Maybe you thought it was going to be a good project. I sure thought it would be great to teach at (university name deleted to protect the guilty). Turned out the "students" all had the brains of an average canine bowel movement.

Perhaps the writers all were graduates of the college where I suffered? After all, the plot, writing, and most of the acting share the same wallpaperish qualities as my "students."

The plot was, I'm sure, committed by a thirteen year old girl. Has all the tropes--wealthy aristocrats, beautiful scenery, glamorous parties, corrupt business deals, contrary old ladies, secret bastards, and illicit sexual affairs. Definitely the script was produced by committee. At times, the dialogue is wooden and at others it's fluid. Somehow, you're able to spin hay into gold. Eileen Atkins does pretty well, too.

Ah, well. You did your best in "Shades of Love" and I did my best at the University of Name Deleted. Neither of us can be held solely responsible for the end result.

If it helps, know that my mother is enjoying "Shades of Love." And since her memory is going, she'll be enjoying it for the first time for many years to come.

Yours sincerely,

Oloiatao
