Autographed photo and letter from Michael Kitchen along with script for Reckless.

From the eBay listing:

…they are all from the same source – a gentlemen who bought them at a charity auction – I have the covering letter from the school for autism that held the charity auction after they sourced the original autograph. The date was 1998.

Trying to enjoy National Puppy Day on a day when terrifying hawks are foremost on my mind.




Viv finds a stray puppy at her door, and who can resist a puppy?









Seems lawyers have dubbed the first working Monday in January after the holidays “Divorce Day“. Sadly, like Richard and Anna, many couples reach a crisis point in their relationship around this time of the year.


Thinking about getting this shirt to wear while I’m abroad this summer.

Michael Kitchen’s acting is nothing short of explosive in this scene when Richard Crane finally throws off the cloak of repentance and hits back at Anna.  His “Yes, if you say so” gets me every time. Difficult to say who’s more in the right in this showdown, but when Michael Kitchen delivers a speech, it’s impossible not to be swayed towards his character’s point of view. And this is a doozy of a speech. Lovely to see Richard Crane finally become a father in Reckless: The Sequel. That child will surely be spoiled rotten. ****

How COULD you, America?





Michael Kitchen playing the cuckold.





Another of Michael Kitchen’s on-screen marriages goes kaput, with childlessness once again blamed as a contributing factor. Steven, Sarah, Richard, Anna, Greg, and Linda might have come to better terms with their situation if they’d read this article. Oh well, on the bright side, divorce means no longer having to live with your wife’s decorating tastes:

I wonder if Michael Kitchen is excited about the fortunes of his hometown team.


The fight scene from Reckless.




“She knows!”

From The Baltimore Sun:

Kitchen, who seems to have become the very embodiment of upper-class England to millions of American viewers in such productions as “To Play the King,” is once again brilliant. Watching him crumble into a bundle of nervous tics when Anna discovers his philandering is a delight.

Tap, tap, tap… Richard tracks down Anna’s lover but fails to recognize the voice as Owen’s.
