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.

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.

I just discovered that North & South, an adaptation of John Jakes Civil War era magnum opus is on DVD.

*glee*

Anyone else remember it? I saw it when I was 15 or so and loved every soapy, trashy, glorious moment of it. It had period dresses, 1980s hair, hot HOT guys, angsty forbidden love (Orry/Madeleine 4 evah! :P), abolutionists, mustache-twirling villains (and villainesses), and uniforms. Lots of uniforms. HoYay too, if you are looking for it (George and Orry are totally BFF). Did I mention the angst? I admit to rewatching the scene were Orry finds out Madeleine's evil husband beats her a few times...ahhhhh the angst!

I am so getting it.

Samples of the "brilliant" dialogue:

Orry: It nearly killed me being away from you.
Madeline: Please... we mustn't say things like that to each other.
Orry: Why not? We feel them.
Madeline There's nothing we can do.
Orry: You don't love him. You are not his.

Ashton: I couldn't possibly love just one man, think how disappointed the rest would be.
