Who nose?

Look, I am wafting in and out of the latest series of Robin Hood (you know, the impossible one with the modern-ish clothes and smouldering Sir Guy...) and honestly, have you ever seen a programme so full of people who should NEVER be filmed in profile??
Forget the leiderhosen-legged parriers of the green, check out their snozzes. Dr Seuss couldn't draw better. The recent episode here (ok, we are way behind you in the UK) was when Robin took a potion made by "Jack" to pretend he was dead (erk, been done before)...and thats when I noticed ze snozfest of yore. Marian's snout, pert tho' it may seem, has obviously had a thump or two in its time. "Allan A Dale" could possibly be related to the Child Catcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
Have a look for yerselfs, am I wrong? I jest nose I ain't.

Look, Marian needs an interesting nose to detract from her slightly anvil-ish chin. Other than that the girl is a corker. AS you know I had a bit of a thing about her on my blog. I won't spoil the end of the series for you but it's a shocker!

Haha, I somehow knew you might be first in Steve! Y'know, I did enjoy your blog about the programme but luckily am blessed with the memory of a gnat when I want to so hopefully will remain blissfully unaware of the ending until it happens! I take it it'snot a fun ending! (hoho, did ya see what I did there....)

I've never watched the new Robin Hood so can't really comment. That Allan guy has a rather large conk though, doesn't he? And you know what they say about big noses...

There is a rather good actor called Harry Lloyd in it though (he was also in the last series of Dr Who). Come to think of it he has very large nostrils (he certainly did in DW). Perhaps having a weird nose is a pre-cursor to joining the cast of Robin Hood?

I'm afraid I do not know the show, but yes -- some should never do a profile shot! ...one being javier badiem. I mean, i know he is gorgeous from the front on, but that profile is just so not hot!

I should also be never photographed from the side -- not so much because of my huge nose (broken when I was a kid and never repaired!) but because of my lack of solid chin!

sigh...

even still, i think my profile is better than javier's!

I do dress like robin hood from time to time. today for example!

I haven't watched Robin Hood. But those noses are vile. It's rare to find someone with a nice nose, though, isn't it? Mine is horrid.

I see you've got Steve going again.

Gerard Depardieu never seemed to be hindered by his extremely odd nose!
I have not watched the Robin Hood series. The appeared to be overacting or something. Was/is it a spoof?

Maybe they were going for that authentic look of the days of yore. I mean they didn't have plastic surgeons back then offering up Hollywood style nose jobs.

Oh dear, have been remiss in replying to you all. Who nose why.

OC - you cheeky lad, I thought it was big feet? Ah well, back to teh research! Mwaahaahahaha

Matty - you seem to miss out on some good TV "over there"! How unfair. However, I'm sure there is nothing wrong with your profile...or am I confusing you with dear sweet Bagel!?

Oh, RB - the thought of getting Steve going must have delayed my response reflex!

Meggie and Mike - thought I'd "do you two together"...well, you know what I mean...I haven't got a very nice snozz (in fact some might say that I could smooke a cigar in the shower and it wouldn't get wet) but you're both probably right! I thought the programme was a spoof when it first started, now I'm not so sure...best leave that one to Steve!
