Rantglass - because that's how things are.

Or something to that effect.

The premise did not seem all that interesting, really. Things like that happen all the time. Is that not how things work in a land full of promises, in a land abundant with golden opportunities?

I have watched only the first four episodes of the show. I am not quite hooked yet, but it always makes you feel good to be able to put yourself in other people’s shoes. Especially so when they are in many, many ways better off than you.

Besides, Mr E looks absolutely fine. Ho hum.

Vince: Look at where we are. Did you ever think we’d have this?

Yeah. Those fabulously-designed walk-in closets; the huge 18th century style mansion fit for fifty but dwelled by only five, with meticulously-trimmed gardens that spread on for miles; twenty gorgeous girlfriends as everyday companions and sometime accessories; delicious chocolate fondue available at any time of the day…

Funny; numbers and quantities can be so important.

Dream on.

Ultimately, we are one and the same – we are human, and we live on the same old planet. But there will always be little things that divide us all, placing us into different levels of society, moulding us into who we eventually become.

There will always be little things that dictate our lives.

Could one of them be luck?

Turtle: This is where you should be living, Vince. In a kingdom, like a prince.

Eric: Don’t you mean in a kingdom like a king, you idiot?

Vince: Nah, E. Everyone wants to kill the king. But the prince, he just sails along telling all the ladies, “One day I’m gonna be king.”

Mmfph. Dream on.
