Would a monkey butler's taste in music stretch to 'The Vervet Underground'?

Monkey Butler's are fine and dandy
but for total awesomeness,

This weekend The Countess and I started watching the first series of Canadian Sci-Fi series  'Sanctuary' which, so far we're quite enjoying. I noticed that the main character, Dr Magnus played by Amanda Tapping has a manservant  who has a very definite 'simian' look to him..


(almost) Monkey Butler?

He's a dwarf Bigfoot is The Big Guy, played by the same actor who plays John Druitt/Jack The Ripper in the series.

Some episodes are lovely and steampunk, especially those dealing with "The Five", the recent latest series opener for example.

I think the new theory is that Skynet is not a computer system that became self-aware, but a virus coded by apes..

I know we have all wondered what it would be like to have a monkey butler. However thievery is not the answer. Therefore I urge whoever of you it was that stole a stuffed chimpanzee in a top hat, to return him to the rightful owners.

That is a monkey that looks like it could defend itself - even taxidermied.

Also the Swede in Hell on wheels

Watch this to the end.  Definitely Steampunk
