Entry — a few years ago minus several more days:
Watching the first episode of North and South. The musical score is great. Must get the cd. The guy with the pointy ears shows up quite a few scenes into it, and this is not going to be staid stuff like other period dramas I’ve seen where the characters barely move even their faces unless it’s to overact. This has some knuckles. Yea! But what a contrived scene to create angst between him and his so obvious love interest, Miss Hale. And Miss Hale, I don’t know if I can ever like her. Pretty haughty and stiff. Butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth. So I still don’t get the fascination with this show. I”ll have to finish at least this episode to have some understanding.

About four hours later:
What just happened? I hate period dramas. Don’t I? I can’t believe it; I love another one. I’m shaking my head because now I adore the fan videos. It’s scary how much I adore them. How old am I? Never mind. Have to watch North and South again to make I sure I didn’t dream some of it. But one thing I’m sure of is I’m so sorry I thought Richard Armitage (yep, that’s his name) had pointy ears and a weird head. I love his ears and his head and his nose and especially his jawline and probably pretty much everything else of him I saw.
But it’s the voice. I was taken with it from the moment he said, “I believe your daughter and I have already met.” It makes me catch my breath it’s so beautiful. It’s like a perfect piece of music. Must put North and South on my iPod, and if I could figure out how to get some of those fan videos on my iPod, I’d be set.
Oh, and Margaret totally redeemed herself. I love how she saved Mr. Thornton! And yes, he saved her too. So much to think about! But he needed someone to really believe in him besides momma. It’s all good now, and I really did feel for Margaret when her parents died but not enough to like her if she rejected Mr. Thornton. Thankfully, she wasn’t that stupid.
I need to slap myself and put this DVD away, so I can get something done. But then I have to give it back to Mimi! I don’t suppose I could find it on the discount table at WalMart. They usually have lots of obscure stuff with bad looking covers. No, they never have anything that’s worth a flip. Good thing I’ve kept up my Amazon Prime Membership. I can have this baby here overnight for hardly anything. Amazon will freak; this is the first video/DVD I’ve ever ordered from them.
