Yes, so I've never made much of a secret around here how very much I love North and South, the mini series starring Daniela Denby-Ashe and *sighs dreamily* Richard Armitage. I've only posted a few pics here and there and only mentioned it a time or ten as my favoritest period drama ever. I'm sure you have no clue about any of that, right? *wink wink*
Right then. I love North and South! There.
Anyway, it really is a fabulous period drama. The love story of course, is sigh-worthy and lovely and wonderful. The cast is pretty much perfect for their roles. (In my humble opinion.) It takes that pride and prejudice theme and totally makes it more awesome! (Nothing against Austen's Pride and Prejudice, mind you. I love that one too. But it comes second to my love of North and South. Sorry.)
So anyway, this is just a chance for me to wax eloquent on this mini series. And post pictures! Because you can't have a post about North and South without pictures of Richard Armitage. It's just not done! :D
But before we get to all that, I wanted to let everyone know that North and South will be showing on the INSP TV channel tonight at 8pm eastern!!!!!! That's worth a few more exclamation points!!!!!! You know I love my exclamation points. !!!!!! So if you get that channel, be sure to tune in.
Unfortunately, I have plans this evening with some family that's here from out of state, so I will be unable to watch it. Thank goodness for DVDs! (And just to make sure you realize how ridiculously nuts over this series I am, here's more proof. I own two copies of the DVDs. One that I watch right now and one for when my first copy inevitably gets too scratched from watching that last scene too many times in a row and it refuses to play for me anymore. That way I don't have to wait for another copy to come in the mail. I can just start watching! Genius plan, yes? ;)
Now then. On to the lovely photos of Richard! And Daniela. And a few other people.
My favorite scene first, of course! ;)
*sigh* The way he looks at her!
I love this scene too. (Oh who am I kidding. I love every scene!)
Every character is wonderful. There's Bessy....
and Nicholas, who is just awesome...
And little Tom (lower left), who is adorable...
then there's Mrs. Thornton, who is just a force to be reckoned with...
and Mary, who hardly says a word, but her eyes speak volumes.
Can't forget Mr. and Mrs. Hale and Dixon!
And then there's Fanny. I'm sorry, but this is actually pretty accurate of her character. She's a flibbertigibbet if I ever saw one. ;)
Yeah, you knew I'd end with this one, didn't you?
And this one?
Last one! I promise! ;D
