    Did anyone watch PBS's Fall Festival of the Arts last night. They were at the San Francisco Opera Company doing Gershwin's Porgy and Bess and it was fantastic.

    I felt the same way, and was hesitant to watch Death Comes to Pemberlay. But it didn't disappoint, it didn't spoil the Pride & Prejudice happy ending, and I really enjoyed it.

    Finally saw the first episode of Pemberley. I thought it was rather ho-hum, but I will watch the concluding episode tonight; I am kind of grateful that this will be the conclusion.

    (It IS concluding, isn't it?)

    I agree, lol so glad that Pemberley is done, I think I expected more from the production. Johnny Worricker returns next in Turks and Caicos on Nov 9. I'm looking forward to it! On a Sherlock note..... so happy for Benedict and his fiance. They look good together and I wish them abundant happiness! Kind of funny how so many on the internet have reacted to the news of his engagement ....

    I adore The Paradise. Not wanting to ever see it come to an end!

    I agree! I enjoyed Season One, but for some reason I feel obsessed with Season two. We receive PBS over the air, and am thankful that we pull it in from two cities in my state. Whenever the weather interferes with one station I can switch quickly to the next. I know I can always watch online, but I don't want to wait until next day. As soon as The Paradise starts, I am waiting and ready; no one talks to me or asks for anything (well most of the time at least).

    My PBS station began airing Lark Rise to Candleford last week and I am FINALLY able to enjoy it. They're showing an episode per day and, so far, I've seen three episodes. Very happy!

    Interesting how many English character actors/actresses move from PBS show to PBSshow. I've seen actors/actresses cross over from Downton Abbey, The Paradise, The Woman Vanishes, Lark Rise etc.

    Worricker - on Masterpiece I'm really looking forward to this: it's a follow-up to Page Eight from a few years ago, the spy drama starting Bill Nighy. Two of my very favourite things together.
    I just picked up Page Eight from the library and am going to try to find time to watch it again before the new episodes begin. I remember liking it, but I don't remember any details about it at all

    There will be two, 2-hour episodes beginning this Sunday (the 8th).
