I'm not on Facbook myself, but I thought I'd highlight the TNA Facebook group, which has recently undergone a change in administration, and is now quite active and enthusiastic. Some of the posts are pretty funny, actually--there was a screen capture of Gambit's first fight in Eagle's Nest which someone chose to caption "Let's Dance." I nearly died. Laughing

The main page is here, but in particular I wanted to highlight the "Posts by others" section here, because Des Glass, TNA collector extraordinaire, has taken to posting some of his rare TNA photos, most of which I've never seen before. Just today he posted a whole bunch of behind-the-scenes production shots from K is for Kill, including a bunch of Joanna with her motorcycle double and Patrick, and of Patrick and Joanna shooting in the woods. There's also a good one of the whole cast (principals and guest stars--pretty much the only time you'll see Purdey and Dr. LeParge sitting together Wink ), and a fabulous one of Gareth, Patrick, and Joanna sitting around looking bored (and a little glum, possibly because they're commiserating about not having been paid in two or three months). I've been looking for behind-the-scenes TNA stuff for ages, so these are a real treat. If you scroll down to the bottom, there are some more as well, including a good one of Joanna from Gnaws, a different angle on Gareth and Joanna's introductory photocall at the Dorcester, and a good close-up from the first proper photocall with the three of them, with Joanna in the purple leotard.

Just thought I'd pass this along because they're such fabulous finds. Cool

That sounds fantastic! I do use Facebook more now, though I prefer fandom-specific forums where possible, but I'll definitely go to this one again now following your recommendations. I see that I "liked" the group some time ago but haven't visited for ages.

Might get me re-started on season 2, though it'd be nice if ITV showed them one per day like they did with season 1, then I'd be forced into a cracking pace!

Some stunning photos on Des Glass's page there.

I'm not keen on Facebook myself, and I don't have an account, so I'm glad that this one is open to the public so I can look at the content without one. I'm not big on the Facebook way of laying things out, either--I'd prefer an actual site, or a forum, or at least a blog. But when there's good stuff to be had, I'll take it in whatever medium I can get, because photos of Gareth and Joanna sitting around looking bored on-set are hard to come by. Wink

Some of the posts are cheekily fun, too. Thus far there's been general goodwill about the show and all its aspects, which is always heartening--lots of love and appreciation for Purdey and Gambit and Steed, and just for the show as a whole, which makes me happy. Very Happy So I'd recommend a poke around. They're using the ITV showings as an excuse to take screen caps and chat a bit. But it's worth it for the photos if nothing else. Cool
