best return of a fav series: masterpiece theater. shar is uber psyched for masterpiece goodness. i grew up on these costume dramas imported from overseas. this is prolly why i have anglophile sensibilites. the new season looks promising with tonight's tess of the d'ubervilles, a new adaptation of wuthering heights, and a dickens review.
doesn't tess look familar? she's the bond gal that sadly died soaked in oil from QOS. also familiar, if you are a masterpiece geek like myself, the gentleman who plays alec was dr. zhivago in the last adaption staring one ms. kiera knightley. hans matheson plays a devilish cad after the fair tess. poor tess! she had the best comeback line - "i feel nothing for you. you are just dust and ashes." that's eff you in victorian times. i'm nervous to watch part two next week. doesn't look like a happy ending.
