MOVIES

Land Girls

As you all know that when a body can do nothing but lay around it is best to keep the mind occupied.
I did this last week by watching some GREAT BBC films.
Land Girls was wonderful. Love the story line and looking at all the vintage fabrics, kitchen wears and china.
This is a 4 star show.

Island at War

Island at War is a rather intense story about the Channel Islands off of England and France. These islands were occupied by the Nazi's during WWII, something I never knew. So of course I had to do some research on the subject matter. The islands were occupied for 5 years, the only English ground the German's were to get a foot hold on.
4 stars.

Bleak House (2005)

Bleak House is a story of an orphan who wins her love and lives well in the end. The usual Dickens story but done very well and worth the time to watch.
4 stars

Masterpiece Classic: Downton Abbey

And who can not love Downton Abby? 
I am all caught up with the show and anxiously awaiting the next episode. I must say it is getting rather intense.
Mary telling her husband to be her secret !
No good can come of that secret out of the bag !
Maggie Smith makes me laugh, she is sooo dry and to the point.
If you have not seen any of these shows they are well worth your time!
4 stars

I've not seen Island at War but love the other three. Did you get all of these through Netflix? Thanks for the recommendations. Did you get my sock e-mail? I was having some trouble sending it.

I sure hope you are feeling better! Didn't know about your back surgery. Sounds as though you are doing what the Dr. says!

I so enjoy Downton Abby...My Sunday night special.

Hugs, Carolyn

If you love Maggie Smith and Dickens (I do!!!) be sure to watch her in David Copperfield. She is the perfect Betsey Trotwood.
