Parade's End:

'That guy'
Anyone watching this? BBC 2 9pm?

Starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Christopher Tietjens, an honourable member of the upper class and his dealings with his unfaithful wife, Sylvia. Set against the backdrop of World War One. Based on the book by Ford Madox Ford.

Great performance by Cumberbatch and a Phenomenal one by Rebbecca Hall. Its great acted and for once they seem to have spent some money on it. (Though they seem to be getting alot out of Royal Naval College, Greenwich).

The only trouble is that I really can't see what Christopher sees in Valentine, they just seem to end up looking at each other drearily.

My aunt was telling me about this. Definitely looks interesting; I hope ABC brings it over to Australia.

[up]Should do. I've noticed that HBO has a hand in it (explains the high production values) so I would not be surprised if ABC is a partner too.

No else then? Final part tonight...

Sadly, it looks like it'll be showing on Nine in Australia, which makes it a bit difficult for me to watch. The ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation, not the American ABC) is modelled after the BBC and has no commercial breaks. It also has an online player which shows episodes for two weeks after, whereas now I'll have to hope Nine shows it in a convenient slot. Bother.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
