i've been thinking about my favorite movies + series. most of them are BBC period pieces. i'm going to share my list of good ones from the BBC and then maybe you will tell me which ones i'm missing out on. deal?
emma - way better than gwynnie's version! you can watch it on youtube. and they remade all of jane austen's other novels too. i think i remember liking them all.
little dorrit - this is such a sweet love story but it's also dickens so there's some creeeepy people.
cranford - judi dench and imelda staunton and all my favorite old ladies.
lark rise to candleford - jamie and i spent this winter watching an episode every night. there are 4 seasons. oh my heart, i loved this show. i feel like the world is really messed up when "two and a half men" is the number one show and no one has even heard of lark rise. you can watch this on youtube also.
bleak house - this is so strange -"shake me up, judy!"- but so good. it's dickens. i like when the girl all the guys fall in love with is sort of plain. you can watch this on netflix instant play. (we're rich now and have netflix.)
north & south - maybe the best movie kiss ever? oh and the hottest dude ever. ouch, mr. thornton, you are burning me you're so hot. you can watch this on netflix instant play or youtube.
jane eyre - i loved the most recent version. this one is a few years old but really really good! you can watch it on youtube.
wives & daughters - oh, this is so sweet. in my top five. some unrequited love and nasty characters and the sweetest heroine. it's on instant play and youtube.
downton abbey - we loved this! it's coming back next year! it's on netflix instant play. watch these videos if you've seen the series. you'll pee your pants.
we watched an episode of the new upstairs, downstairs and i wasn't hooked but i'll watch the rest if i can find it.
i know i'm missing out on a bunch of good ones. tell me!
