There's no better way to end the weekend than snuggling up on Sunday night with the "new" Masterpiece Classics on PBS. I don't know about anyone else, but I'm a sucker for period dramas. Yes, I even read the books. What can I say? I'm just a girl, after all.
Somehow I missed part two of 'Tess of the d'Urbervilles' last Sunday, so I'm going to have to see if they replay it or catch it somewhere [cough] online. I'll definitely have to read the book, too.
UPDATE: Watched the rest of 'Tess'. Good stuff.
'Wuthering Heights' started last night.
I read 'Wuthering Heights' for the first time last year after wondering what all the fuss was about. Though, I did enjoy it, I couldn't help but think that it would be what we now call a "romance" novel. So, does that mean that today's books boasting paintings of a torn-shirted Fabio on the cover will one day be considered classics, too? Naw, I doubt it. I suppose 'Wuthering Heights' was really "out there" for it's contemporary readers but today, books of it's type are a dime a dozen.
I also just wanted to do a girly thing here and point out that Tom Hardy as Heathcliff, is, um, well...yummy.
Okay, I know there are others like me who love these classics. What say you?
And allow me to leave you with this most wonderful homage to the book, the amazing Kate Bush song "Wuthering Heights":
I'll see you next Sunday, Cathy and Heathcliff.
