BUT-Sunday night is Masterpiece Theater! An hour or two-no commercials! (which are getting sooo much louder lately!) I love it. I enjoy Masterpiece Mystery and Contemporary, but Classic-ahhhhhh! That is my cup of tea!
Last season- Dickens and Jane Austin-I was delerious! For the last month it was Cranford and Return to Cranford.....could I have been happier? Judi Dench-so lovely! For me, it is a "holiday" to the English Countryside!
SYNOPSIS-Emma Woodhouse (Romola Garai, Atonement adorable!!) was born with the sun shining down on her. The radiant, privileged girl grows into a remarkable talent for matchmaking, as observed by her loving but disapproving father (Michael Gambon, Cranford) and childhood friend Mr. Knightley (Jonny Lee Miller, Endgame-sooo cute!!). When the decidedly less privileged Harriet Smith arrives, Emma meddles with fate to find her a match, until her flawless intuition is called into question. Dissuaded from more matrimonial predictions, Emma nonetheless continues to cheerfully contemplate superior men — and meets one of her own in the handsome, gleaming Frank Churchill. But after being so busy managing everyone else's heart, does Emma know her own? A fiercely funny new version of the Jane Austen novel, Emma was adapted by Sandy Welch (Jane Eyre).
Go to the website-there is a quiz to see what bachelor of Highbury would be your match!!! Mine-Mr. Nightly...but I would not take any less!
So, I hope you take a look -if British accents, English countrysides, handsome men, romance, comedy, beautiful period dresses, handsome men (did I say that?), gorgeous homes and Jane Austen are your thing....give it a try!
I also love Becoming Jane with Anne Hathaway....
and Lost in Austen, a modern day take on Jane.
Don't even get me started on my love for Pride and Prejudice!!!! Another post!!!
