North and South

So I received North and South today in the mail. I confused it with some civil war era movie with Patrick Swayze, it does have the same title and I’ve heard the 80’s one is good, or something, I’m not sure why I wanted to watch it.

Anyways after the girls had gone to bed I began watching the movie. I knew it was a mini series, it did have 2 disc and since we only get one movie from netflix at a time, I only get the first part, so Jon mentioned how I could watch it on-line but I was like whatever because I hadn’t started watching it and was not involved with Patrick Swayze. Good thing it was the BBC mini series and not the 80’s one.

I started it and since I loved it so much and did not want to wait to see how it ended and I started watching the second half on-line. ( I love that we have high speed internet now, dial-up so would not have worked.)

I just finished it and I loved this movie/ mini series.

It was just wonderful.

It was very much like Pride and Prejudice, but still great, in the mean guy and nice girl, both being too prideful then he professes love and she rejects him. You totally see it coming, but it was still so sweet and a great watch.

If you liked Pride and Prejudice you should totally see this movie or read the book. I’m sure it would be a great read too.

I loved North and South. I’m totally putting it on my wish list to buy. Sometimes four or five hour miniseries are the best.

Yeah it’s almost 2 in the morning and I want to go to my parents house to give Jon time to study tomorrow. I’m gonna be so tired.

P.S. Mr. Thornton is kinda cute in this passionate way, even though I would not normally be attracted to him and he reminds me of the guy from “The Office”, or Steve Carrell.
(There was an ad for a Steve Carrell movie and I thought “Wow, Mr. Thornton looks a little like him but cuter.”)

Let me just remind you it is 2 o’clock in the morning so I don’t always make sense.

    Hmmm…never heard of it, but it sounds like it’d be up my alley. I love Pride and Prejudice…both the long series and the newer one with the chick from Pirates of the Caribbean (my brain is blanking on the name). And when I say “love” it, I really mean it. Like, I watched it so many times that I need to buy a new DVD b/c it’s worn out.

    Hey, I’m reading this at 2 am….isn’t that strange? Anyway, I know what you mean about liking mini-series better. It’s so nice because they have more time than a regular movie to develop the characters. You start to really get to know the characters, and so you feel more involved in the plot. It’s hard to go back to regular 2 hour movies! 🙂
