1. After this clip
, The Lakes
just moved way up my viewing list. Yeah, I know it's a gritty and intelligent drama but I am afraid I am shallow and all my brain ic capable of processing is 'Guuuuhhh...John Simm...guhhh...making out.' I have yet to figure out how someone who is, objectively, not good-looking, manages to be so hot.
2. I found this Casanova
MV with David Tennant. It looks scrumptious. Must be my weekend viewing then. I realized, however, that I am totally allergic to seeing DT upset: I begin to feel upset myself.
3. You know my mad love for Our Mutual Friend
, the novel and the 1998 adaptation? And John/Bella and Eugene/Lizzie, the two mainc couples? Well, imagine my delight when I found MVs about them. Seriously, if you watch these, I dare you not to want to watch OMF.( MVs here )
4. Does anyone else love the 1990s BBC adaptation of Tess of the D'Urbervilles
with Justine Waddell and Oliver Milburn as much as I do? Clearly some people do, because look what I found on youtube. So much angsty OTPishness.( Tess vids )
5. I adore Henry Tilney from Northanger Abbey
. Am about to watch the 2007 version. Found this MV and am pleased to announce he seems acceptable :)( MV here )
6. And because I cannot end this post, largely about lit adaptations, without mention of my favorite adaptation hero, Mr. Thornton from North and South
, here is a vid.( N and S vid )
