I started the night off watching Jane Eyre which by the way was actually pretty good [a young Anna Paquin was in it]. Then, I watched Wuthering Heights. Again, pretty good. And still wanting to watch period pieces, I came across the Forsyte Saga on Netflix. I cannot believe I haven't ever seen this, but then again, it did air in 2003. In 2003, other things were on my mind, you know how college life is;)
If you are looking for something to tide you over until Downton returns, I suggest the Forsyte Saga. It's a period drama that is actually pretty full of drama! It centers around the Forsyte family and the ups and downs a wealthy Victorian life provides. I started watching it yesterday afternoon and finished up the series at 2am. I had to find out how it ended. If you like these type of things, I suggest you watch it!!!!
