* NarmCharm: Creator/CharltonHeston as a KnightTemplar[=/=]SympatheticMurderer judge. On the one hand, he talks as if he's merely doing a narration instead of actually playing a character. But on the other hand, he just sounds so cool doing it that you can't help but continue watching him.

She'd had so many problems throughout her life, and she had finally straightened out and married someone she really loved; the video footage of her wedding showed them just how happy she was.
