The mini-series is taken from a pair of books by author Terry Prachett, The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic.

They are certainly in the genre of satirical comedy, without doubt.

The books tell the story of Discworld, a flat planet that floats through space on the backs of four elephants that are riding on the back of a giant turtle called A'Tuin.

Hilarity insues.

Sean plays Twoflower, an innocent but courageous tourist, in fact the very FIRST tourist, to the city of Anhk-Morpork.

Hugs,
Rach

Very much so! Wickedly funny with a bit of a bite, I'd call it.

Twoflower is one of those characters Sean was BORN to play!

I've read the novels and seen all the online stuff including three trailers. I assure you that Twoflower is very different from Sam.

My friend, Belle, posted this and I loved it so much that I had to pass it on. It is not only vintage Sean, but communicates the very essense of Twoflower.

Thanks rach, that is such a nice pic of Sean and I can just imagine him as Twoflower even though never read the book or seen tv series yet.

One thing that has impressed me about TCOM is that, in every picture I've seen from it, Sean's eyes look so GREEN! Absolutely jade green! Usually, his eyes change color from brown to gold to green but in this, they seem consistant in color. I wonder if it's the wild color of that shirt, or if his eye color is settling into green as he gets older?

Hugs,
Rach
