Because the present lack of new Powerful Opponents subtitles is killing my soul, I decided to sate the craving with the next best thing: a substitute.

Said substitute? A BBC 'movie' from 1997 which also involves a reserved bodyguard appointed to guard a son of the establishment member, and they both fall for the same girl.

Namely, The Student Prince, starring Robson Green, Rupert Penry-Jones, and Tara Fitzgerald.

Robson Green, not suffering horrendously for once (Touching Evil scarred me for life with its angst) plays Barry, a government agent of blue-collar background who not too pleased to be assigned to guard an offspring of the Royal Family who just started at Oxford. However, Barry ends up becoming fond of his sweet and dim charge (RPJ). Now, if only both of them didn't end up liking the same girl, an American student played by Tara Fitzgerald (whose arguable accomplishment is managing an accent that, while not in any way American, doesn't sound British either).

While PO is way better in terms of plot (they have 16 eps!) and its heroine is immeasurably cooler, PO also doesn't give us this:



Indeed.

A few more caps from that scene and a couple of others )

And yet, my slashmeter shows its pickiness and selectiveness by not slashing the guys in this at all, despite the scene above. I mean, if this happened in PO with Hot Bodyguard and President's Son, I'd be hitting the stratosphere of slashtasticness.

Oh, and since I love both guys in PO, I decided that they should model the ending on the ending of this, where each guy ended up with an OTP after all.

And speaking of PO and OTPs, this vid made me melt and squee. It's been put up as a preview for ep 9, but what really gets me is the minute before that, which is last minute of ep 8. OMG. Lady Bodyguard/President's Son EEEEEE! (Honestly, I find all three of them so hot, and ship any of them with any of them, that OT3 might be the only way to go).

Vid here )

And speaking of Robson Green, anyone else remember Me and Mr. Jones, a totally delightful BBC movie which was a love story between a (female) Prime Minister and a (male) tabloid journalist. It was so adorable.

I found a dance scene from it (made me die) on youtube:

Can you tell I like Robson Green?
