North and South

This summer I've been going crazy watching tons of movies! I've enjoyed almost all of them immensely, but one has definitely stood out in my mind: North and South. This is a BBC mini-series based on a book by Elizabeth Gaskell, and it is amazing. Truly, I'm not hard to please when it comes to movies, especially period-costume dramas! But this one was so much fun to watch. Richard Armitage is so sultry on screen. I watched last season of BBC America's Robin Hood where he plays the sheriff's right-hand man. But it was pure joy to see him play the lead romantic role! Check it out, if you can.

Katri, we'll have to watch Design Star again together! Have you been watching this season? I've actually only seen one show, but I thought it was fun.

The Best BBC Mini-series classic in a long while. Bleak House was great but didn't have Armitage! Never seen "smoulder" on screen like that before! The propose scene is one of The great moments on screen.
