I know - horrible late for this. It's almost time for another episode. But I guess that better later than never applies even here.
From what I've read in this thread I'm in minority but I'm not being put off by Hathaway being an ass. And you know why? Because at least until now he was an honest ass. And that's not so common these days. He is sort of like - what you see is what you get.
On the other side - what some of you said about the possibility of him being all smooth and charming at the beginning and then letting us (and Kate) know that he is an ass.... well, that would have given Jamie more to work with. As it is I count our blessings - we got to see him, it;s a different role and I like the clothes.
Hmm, the fact that I don;t like Kate that much is another story.
