Well, present day Scottish folk are a mix of genetics. How close do you think Gargoyles Arthur is to the Arthur of legend? It seemed from my wiki-educated guess to be close.
This is a side note to the extreme...but you recall how at one point (or maybe a couple) Greg said he would go for Sean Connery as a live action Macbeth? And Sean played in Highlander an Egyptian, with his Scottish accent.....and according to the comics (and Scot legend) Scota and the ruling family were egyptian from whom Macbeth would have been descended....anyway not going anywhere with that but thought it funny.

Back to the real world - counting is underway now to Scottish Independence - or not- this may be too late to ask but does anyone have any opinions as to which way it will (or should) go? I'm weirdly fascinated by this, but I honestly thing without the garg connection I would not be as much. Funny how that works :)

I wonder what response the King Arthur of the Gargoyles Universe would have to the referendum. Historically, the bulk of Scotland was separate from "Britain" in Arthur's day (the 5th and 6th centuries), being the home to the Picts and the Scots (Irish settlers led over by Prince Fergus - the same Fergus whom Merlin and King Pelles borrowed the Stone of Destiny from) rather than the Britons (except for the southern parts) - though many versions of the medieval legend has Arthur conquer Scotland and make it part of his kingdom. We don't know what Greg Weisman's take on that is, of course.

Given the comments I set off responding to the spam last week, there can be only one way to start things off this week - the first, best way...with the Flying Circus!

"It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known."
