Synchronize Your Watches!

Just wanted to remind all you fans of lush literary adaptations that the Masterpiece Theatre Austen-athon starts on Sunday. For me, it means that at 8 o'clock for the next ten Sundays I will be found ensconced on the couch in my flannel pajamas with some dark chocolate . I've heard good things about the version of Persuasion they are airing Sunday. Oh, and for you X-Philes, Gillian Anderson (aka the REAL Scully) is the new host of Masterpiece Theatre. Enjoy!

So very lucky. My TV guide is pointing and at your TV guide and saying to the waiter, "I'll have what she's having."

Thanks for the reminder. It sounds like ten things I can look forward too.

I will be doing the same! I started last Sunday, but was devastated! I didn't realize it was only the 2nd portion of Jane Eyre, and I'd been wanting to see the whole thing. I'm probably teaching Persuasion next semester, so I figure I'll tape the program. I hope it's good!

Katie, there is also an earlier version of Persuasion starring Ciaran Hinds and Amanda Root. I think it was released in 1995. Excellent adaptation, in my opinion.
