lost_spook: (I Capture - writing)
(I still have space for more topics if anyone hasn't left me one yet! The original post is here should you wish to.)

[profile] ramasi requested: Book-to-movie (or tv) adaptations you like? (Or didn't like, if you feel like ranting).

My first thought was that this was a very nice question, the second that this could be a very long post if I'm not careful. So I made myself choose 5 favourites, setting myself a rough guideline for inclusion - something along the lines of "it needs to be something I've watched at least twice and should be where I read the book first". (And then promptly broke that rule with my first choice, as you do.) (The pics in this post, btw, are my screencaps, excepting those for the first two, which I stole from Google.)

Four more, same as before. Well, nearly. Of the male variety this time, and possibly less pretty, although I suppose that depends on your point of view...

Day 17 - Favourite mini-series. (I'm rebellious, I'm doing the days out of order. This post has to be done on a Sunday - classic period drama day. ;-D Besides, as [livejournal.com profile] pedanther pointed out, otherwise this meme ends on a really depressing note!)

This had to be a BBC period drama as I don’t watch many other self-contained serials (that, I take it is a mini-series, yes?), although Lost in Austen gets a definite honorable mention here. I also love very much the 1995 Persuasion, The Way We Live Now, Wives and Daughters, Bleak House and Our Mutual Friend and Little Dorrit, among, well, just about all of them, but I choose North & South.

I hesitated over this, as I know the only two people I persuaded to watch in the virtual world didn’t like it and fair enough (that’s what makes life interesting!). However, this is why I do (or merely scratching the iceberg of that, possibly), and if my flist are kind and read the entry, I’ll explain something about what I really like in TV in relation to this. And I have some pretty and non-spoilerish pictures, too and links to the beautiful score by Martin Phipps. So, humour me here. You can ignore the other answers for all the other 29 days, but I want to share my love for the BBC's North & South.

And this is why I still like it, okay )
