An obsession




The latest BBC miniseries.

Once a week, I put my kids to bed, grab my man and head downstairs to be transported to rural Victorian England, for 1 hour of cinematic bliss.

Lark Rise to Candleford encompasses all that I love about the BBC...the ability to portray a story with realism and yet still remain magical. And they do it while using "normal" looking people-not your stereotypical Hollywood type.

Where I live, it is on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. But, on Thursdays at 10 p.m. they broadcast it in High-Def.

So why am I letting you know when this week will already be the 13th episode? Because they are wonderful, that's why! Yes, there has already been a lot of character development, but they are very episodial, meaning that each one has it's own story line.

PLUS

It will be released onto DVD in October- can't wait!

I love BBC shows. I will have to check this one out. Can you watch it online?

I LOVE North and South. I read the book after I saw the movie though and I wish I had read it first.

Any other good shows I should see?
