Beautiful scenery.

by Dellareply 304/14/2019

Saw the whole thing back when it aired on BBC. Gorgeous scenery but the writing has no meat to it. Same problem as with that Howards End adaptation last year.

There's an earlier thread for this show but it's just posters bitching about the casting of black people, so you might as well share your thoughts here.

DVR'd because of GoT. I'll watch it tomorrow night.

Nitt loving it. But Derek Jacobi's turn was simply beautiful.

r6 Agreed. He really touched me with that performance. A true legend.

I feel like Javert was a bit too passionate. Otherwise spot on. I even hated Marius a tiny bit less than usual. Thenardier was great.

It's weird to me that people are complaining about a black Javert. He wasn't actually white in the book.

by Dellareply 904/25/2019

It's been done.

by Dellareply 1004/25/2019

It's really not a terribly interesting story. So, no.

by Dellareply 1104/25/2019

Stopped after 2nd episode.

by Dellareply 1204/25/2019

I have to agree with R11. The story keeps getting adaptations, one after the other. I don't know if it had something to do with the popularity of the musical, but I just don't find the story at all compelling. I honestly don't get who is reading that book and thinking, "what a great story."

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
