    Life is too short to force myself to read or watch anything that is not going to put money in my pocket. My school days are over and I am now an adult.

    Yeah, I can see how some may not like the show. It is kind of slow, but there is something relaxing about it. So relaxing that it puts me to sleep. lol

    Still, it has an outstanding cast. Did anyone see Page Eight, that introduced the Johnny Warricker character? I missed that so I don't have much background.

    Great cast for sure!!!

    I actually have not seen WR in anything in a while and I thought she was amazing in this.

    We finished it last night and thoroughly enjoyed it.

    No, Debb, we did not see PAGE EIGHT. I wish we had.

    We like the slower pace where it is about the story - that's a nice change of pace from some of the hyper-intense shows on the air these days.
    And what a cast! Christopher Walken, Winona Ryder, Helena Bonham Carter, Rupert Graves, Ralph Fiennes, all packed into an hour and a half. Ryder looked great, I haven't seen her in ages.

    No, Debb, we did not see PAGE EIGHT. I wish we had
    I got it from the library

    I thoroughly enjoyed Warricker. I loved the pace and taking the time to tell the story and learn who the character were and what they were about. The cast was amazing.

    The networks air 3 and 1/2 seasons of Lark Rise to Candleford: 3 full seasons of 12 episodes each, and a 4th season of 6 episodes. But IIRC, originally there were at least 4 FULL seasons of 12 episodes each and a portion of a 5th season that was never finished. But I haven't seen those additional episodes in reruns, since I watched it when it first aired several years ago.

    Haven't heard anyone mention 'The Paradise' for quite a while. It's really well done (and gorgeously photographed), and I think the episodes are getting better and better. I'm really enjoying it.
