The Adventures of Stick-Figure Richard ~Part 6


Remember the Stick-Figure Richard Storyline Contest which was held a few months ago? (HERE)
The 2nd place winner (which missed tying for 1st place by one vote) was Phylly3's idea, which was to
show how Spooks Season 8 "should have been." She and I later brainstormed what to include.
Even though it took me a while to get to it, I had a blast creating this episode!  Thanks Phylly. :)

*Be sure to pause the blog's background music (bottom of screen) before viewing.*

By the way, Phyllis has a cute new blog called Phylly's Faves which you can view HERE.

Is there anything you would have changed
(or left the same) in Spooks Season 8?

I just realized that I forgot to mention in the video that calling Sarah "She of the Dark Roots"
was invented by Ragtag at Reviewerama, who started the trend in THIS Spooks review. 
(Ragtag, I thought of you when drawing her dark-rooted hair.)

OMG Nat! So great! There's waaay more stuff there than I ever envisioned -- love the Harry & Ruth idea! And SFR's ties!!! How can one little bow tie become a whole suit? It's pure magic!

Ragtag said...

Ok youtube is blocked where i am right now, but i'm sure you would have done fabulously. Thanks for the shoutout!

Phylly3 thanks for the amazing storyline!

Ragtag said...

Yay finally saw it! Fabulous. I love the speedos little triangle. GO ROS & HOME SECRETARY as a couple, woohoooooo!!!!!!!!!

And Malcolm! And Jo! (Though don't mind if Tariq comes anyway) as long as you-know-who still karks it. Booo!

Brilliant! You have made a rainy Wednesday full of sunshine!
I think you covered everything including the boiler suit! LMAO
SFM(alcolm)...so cute.
Phylly3 & you have created a masterpiece!

Skully said...

OMG! STICK FIGURE SPOOKS!!! Too awesome! SF Ros is so cute. Love the ties :) I have to say I'm a little concerned folks are so keen to see Lucas endure more boiler suit humiliation - you sadists!!

MillyMe said...

Giggles from rainy Norway! Thanks for wish-fulfillment for Lucas-fans. Perhaps Spooks 9 writers and the costume department can cadge a few hints from Stick Richard 6 to ensure satisfaction guaranteed?

@Rob said...

Fire those hack BBC writers, and have 'em hire you immmediately! Brillant! Absolutely brillant!!!

Debra said...

Love it, NAT!!!!

It made me laugh out loud....soo-o-o cute.

THANKS!!

Maike said...

Too cute! Every stick figure spook so easily recognizable. Pure genius.

Myrtle said...

Brilliant!!!!!
I am secretly hoping that Ros & the HS are safe and make an appearance in S9.

TeeTotallyNot said...

I watched it hours ago.. and I'm still laughing. Absolutely totally brilliant!!!!!!!!
Speedo, Sarah-related and single-handedly saving HS+Ros are my favourites, and bringing Malcolm back. Most excellent and the 3:34 of the week. Thank yis both so much.. I'm looking forward to the next episode.. maybe a prediction of season 9?

Nat at RA FanBlog said...

"More boiler suit scenes" was Phylly's idea! :) (Don't deny it, Phylly.) She also came up with telling off Sarah, saving Jo, saving Ros & HS, having SFR shown as the director, and many other things. (I threw in Malcom, the suit, tux & speedo. ~The last 3 show that I'm rather shallow when it comes to Lucas, no?)

virginie said...

Oh my, so great !!! I laughed all along ! Sarah tied up ! Ros pulling her hair ! Oh, and I love Stick-Figured Harry !!!! Congrats, this is really a good one you all did !

judith said...

Brilliant! And leave Sarah in the dust....

Twinkling Moon said...

Awesome! I wish there was some way to get RA to see this, it's hysterical! My fave parts: Harry and Ruth get together and Lucas saves Jo, Yay! So do Lucas and Jo get together in this version of S8? I mean if Harry gets Ruth and Ros get the Home Sec, then shouldn't Lucas and Jo get together too, or does he just save her?

phylly3 said...

Well, in my fantasy, they are a couple!
Hey Nat, don't foist the Boiler suit thingy on me -- I have the email proof to whose idea it was!! LOL
You guys are all "cheeky bum lookers"! :)

Joan Crenshaw said...

I should never try to eat lunch at my desk and watch these things, I almost choked! I LOVE SF Ros and think she's just the perfect woman for SF Lucas (aka SFR).

She of the Grey Roots (bu only till Saturday)

OML said...

So cute! I loved all the changes, although I would keep Tariq too.

My fav scene hands down is Sarah tied up most of the season! :D, followed close second by dead Sarah and third SF-Ros pulling her hair. Phyllis and Nat, you just fulfilled my whish ;)

Anna said...

I saw this in an LJ friend's post, and reposted, with credits to you and this site, on the armitage_daily community there - it is just too good not to be seen! Hope you do not mind, and I really loved the whole series (now that I have seen it) and this instalment in particular.

Nat at RA FanBlog said...

HAHAHA... Phylly, I just went back and read our original email messages and you're right! I was the one who suggested "more bum shots" after all! I guess it slipped my mind since I didn't love those scenes in S8. It was probably just something that I thought would get a laugh. (But if anyone asks, I'm still going to pretend it was you. hee hee.)

Avalon said...

This is hilarious. And I would not change a thing, I love your version.

Anonymous said...

Wonderful!! I prefer your version to the original!! I think you should offer your talents as a writer!

Jane M said...

This is absolutely glorious! I think this is the first time I've ever had a crush on a cartoon character. SF Lucas is just too adorable! The hair! The facial expressions! *sigh*
On the downside, now I really want to watch season 9. Patience, oh patience.

@Rob said...

OMG Ladies! My copy of Venetia just shipped! I can't wait!! Yay!!

servetus said...

I don't want to watch this until I have finished Spooks 8, but just wanted to say hi and happy Easter weekend and express my general appreciation for your blog!

Myrtle said...

@Rob, you will adore listening to Venetia I am sure, RA's 'voice' for Damerel is soooo sexy.

@Rob said...

@ Myrtle I can't wait!!! I will put it on my iPod and listen to his silky voice while at the gym!!! That is the way to workout with Richard's voice in my ears. :)

servetus said...

This is just super. You were both very creative!
