1. What three words would you use to describe Spike?
Chancer, lonely, flirty
 

2. What would Spike's theme song be?
Mash up of The Gambler and Never Forget

3. Spike vs Hilary, where do you stand?
On which one I prefer? Which one is a kinder/wholesome character? Who is right or wrong with choices they have made? (Maybe pondering too much)

4. The best thing about Spike is

a) His underwear (if I'm being shallow)

b) His point of view (all ponts of veiw are equally valid so can't pick this)

c) His wit YES

d) His attitude (Changes in circumstance so couldn't pick this)
 

5. The worst thing about Spike is

a) His underwear (Not on your nellie)

b) His point of view (all equally valid)

c) his chatting up technique (found it quite amusing)

d) His behaviour towards Hilary YES at the end sozzled


6. How do you feel about Spike by the end of the play?
Reread the last couple of pages, Spike was a skeptic which seemed to make sense considering the paper results were tampered with. He wasn't the most supportive but drunk anyway.... No strong feelings either way to be honest...

7. Rank Spike's likeability on a scale of 1 - 10

(1 being 'I don't like him at all', 10 being 'I love everything about him')

 7 I think, he's not a bad person

8. Complete this sentence:

Damien's portrayal of Spike is..... Multidimensional

1. Selfish, witty, irritating, sexy, intelligent, arrogant, sexy, posh, giddy... And sexy.

2.   didn't came up anything else biggrin I was thinking Hilary's and Spike's relationship and what they talked at the play. If you read the lyrics there might be some similarities of Spike's thoughts.. 

3. Hilary, althought Spike has some very good points and he see the things like they are on animal point of view, but Hilary thinks out of the box too, you should always think outside the box. We are all animals but there are things science and our mind cannot explain.

4. His wit

5. His behaviour towards Hilary.

6. You're sort of mad at him but you can't, he has good heart but his intelligence and will to show up sort of fill his cup too much. Buuuut that body can forgive many things and faults...

7. 7 and lots of mixed feelings, when they had their bedtime talk I liked him but when he started to argument I sort of hated him.

8. is amazing and entertaining.

Rosie - I thank you! bow

Kallie - your three words for Spike are very insightful! Multidimensional is a good word for Damien as an actor in general!

Jozie - I think you used more than three words there!
Interesting that you both selected the best thing about Spike is his wit and the worst thing his behavious towards Hilary!

1. What three words would you use to describe Spike?

opinionated, witty, fit

2. What would Spike's theme song be?

Hmm - I'll come back to that

3. Spike vs Hilary, where do you stand?

 Assuming that you mean their philosophy I'll say somewhere inbetween - in every other respect I'd say Spike all the way!

4. The best thing about Spike is

a) His underwear - it wasn't actually his underwear per se that I liked so much.....

b) His point of view- I agreed with much of his point of view..but - to (mis)quote one of my favourite Spike lines - he also talked a lot of bollocks!

c) His wit- he was witty...

d) His attitude - ....was probably the worst thing about Spike!

Sooo...I guess from these choices I'd have to say his wit.  But my preferred answer would be his honesty.

5. The worst thing about Spike is

a) His underwear - I have nothing against his underwear!

b) His point of view - I don't disagree with everything he said.....

c) his chatting up technique - did he have one??!

d) His behaviour towards Hilary - was abominable at times...although he was quite genuinely affectionate at times too.

Think I'll have to go with d)...but maybe expand it to include everybody! 

6. How do you feel about Spike by the end of the play?

That's a very good question!  The first time I saw it I would've said by the end I thought he was a complete shit!  But my feelings towards him have mellowed quite a lot.  At the moment I'm feeling rather ambivalent and probably need to have a mull over Spike's role in the play and his relationship with Hilary in the other thread.....

7. Rank Spike's likeability on a scale of 1 - 10

(1 being 'I don't like him at all', 10 being 'I love everything about him')

I'm gonna have to give him 5 because I still dislike him as much as I like him. (That's pretty good - 1st time I saw it he'd have been lucky to get a 2!)

8. Complete this sentence:

Damien's portrayal of Spike is......entertaining (and yes - I did steal that off Jozie (thanks Jozie!), but it's true!!) and very aesthetically pleasing....

Haha Jozie you made me lol... noone could disagree with those 3 words!

Your questionnaire answers are buzzing round my brain fifi... most of all your comment on Spike's honesty. Yes! That should be an option, thanks for pointing it out, it could me overlooked due to him being overwhelmingly opinionated!

The likeability question is there to be deliberately provocative.. as fans don't we tend to 'coo; more around character we can "like"? is a less 'likeable' character less engaging? (these are rhetorical questions...)

Anyone else having fun thinking of a theme song for Spike?

I've definitely got a song I'd like to sing TO Spike....

 

"Human Behaviour" - Björk

 

If you ever get close to a human

and human behaviour

be ready to get confused

 

there's definitely no logic

to human behaviour

but yet so irresistible

 

there is no map

to human behaviour

 

they're terribly moody

then all of a sudden turn happy

but, oh, to get involved in the exchange

of human emotions is ever so satisfying

 

there's no map and

a compass

wouldn't help at all

 

 

human behaviour
