Clear away any plans you have for the next 4 hours and prepare to delight in the most scrumptious viewing experience you've had since, well, ever.
North and South (the BBC production, not the civil war thingy). Available on instant play. That is all.
Is this based on the book by Elizabeth Gaskell? I her books. Her book Wives and Daughters was also done by the BBC (shown on PBS' Masterpiece Theatre here in the States) in 2000.
Speaking of coincidences, I really haven't been on this forum for half a year, but now I'm ttc and have been back for the past week. I totally would have missed your response to my thread!
When you finish watching let me know what you thought!
Thanks to the reemergence of this thread... I watched the entire series last night!!! It was awesome!!! I really enjoyed it, especially the end. My heart was definitely beating faster.
Thanks for the recommendation!
Oh what fun! I haven't heard of this, it's now in my queue. Another slim coincidence, we were just watching re-runs of the BBC series Robin Hood on Netflix, where Richard Armitage plays the horrible Guy of Gisborne. I'm happy to see him in something else. I'm just happy to see him.

Have you caught him on the latest seasons of MI-5?
MI5: we really need to give that show another chance. Dh and I watched the first season. But in all sincerity, we didn't go on with the series because dh was too disturbed by the second episode, where the bad guy utilized a deep fryer to gory effect. Seriously, dh called me from work the next day to say that scene was still haunting him. So we finished the season and left it at that. Dh is definitely a sensitive guy in some regards.
Richard Armitage didn't join MI-5 until Season 7. I watched the 1st - 3rd seasons, but I must admit that after Mathew MacFadyen's departure in Season 3, I just never got into it again.
A British friend suggested I start again at Season 7... it has been great!
Well, you will be happy to know that we will be seeing a lot more of him in the US, as he is in the upcoming Captain America movies and also just started filiming, The Hobbitt.
You should check him out in The Vicar of Dibley episodes. He's great in them!
Well, that's just exciting all around.
Found this thread quite by accident and now I'm going to sleep way past my bedtime because I just HAD to watch all four episodes.
That was really good!!! So glad you originally posted this thread!! THANKS!!!!
So I put this series in my netflix queue when I first saw this thread, and I just watched it yesterday and today. I loved it. I tried Wives and Daughters put didn't really get into it, and now I'm watching Lark Rise to Candleford. But I loved watching it on my iPad, because I was just lying in bed with my earbuds in and I could really pay attention to it, which was part of the issue with Wives & Daughters.
I just finished Downton Abbey (loved it!) and was looking for another British period piece to watch, yay. A little excited to have been diagnosed with walking pneumonia because I am being given enough relaxation time to watch some of this! Thank you for the recommendation!
OOOh ... I hope it's still on streaming ... we loved Downtown Abby and couldn't find anything else to watch afterwards.
