forsyte saga

It has beautiful dresses and restrained passion. And ENGLISH ACCENTS!

It’s a chick show. It’s wonderful

The Forsyte sage began tonight on Masterpiece theater. I have been looking forward to it for weeks now. I had the chance to read the series years ago, before I really understood anything about anything. I’ve only seen the first part of the series, and I’m already finding it much richer than I remembered it.

It’s worth watching. The series captures the late-Victorian middle class’s obsession with money and propriety.

And then love. Where DOES love fit into a well-regulated household?

Soames is marvelous, he behaves like a stalker. It’s great! He’s so beside himself. And he’s so bad!

All of the characters are fabulous. I will be watching.
