I can't believe it's not the Iliad! No, that blasphemy against Homer...er, Troy is out on dvd on the twentieth. The question is, is Peter O'Toole's performance alone in this movie worth me buying it?

Edit: Checked HMV. The first three series of MASH currently look more appetising than that mockery of classical Greek literature. And they're cheap. Ah, bless.

Qui primus ab troiae...

I dunno, I didn't think the film was that bad. Sure, some parts of it were just wrong... but I thought they got most of the important themes right. Like how the expedition to Troy was the turning point for all later warfare... and how archery/Paris is feminine/cowardly. I dunno if I'll buy the DVD until I can find it in a five-dollar-bin... but I might want to buy it eventually.

And the first three seasons of MASH are indeed tasty... though after buying season five I don't know if seasons six and seven are in my near future.
