“Elizabeth Gaskell’s classic explores the simmering, restrained passion between two very different people who fall in love in spite of themselves.”
I consider North and South to be the darker and more romantic version of Pride and Prejudice.
This series truly is the epitome of a perfect love story. It has a well-balanced love and hate relationship, the chemistry between the two protagonists is amazing, the conflict that threatens to tear them apart is absolutely heart-wrenching, the ending will set your hearta-flutter, and the dialogues are superb.
Let me put more emphasis on DIALOGUES–I purposely watched with subtitles because the script was so well written that I didn’t want to miss a single word. And the character development was beautiful.
Oh! I can just keep adding praises!
This series is one that ALL fans of period dramas and of love stories must watch!
I’m really not someone who will watch a film (let alone a 4-part series) even twice, so the fact that I watched North and South four times and still react in this fan crazy way should express enough how great it is.
One more thing. Now you may stare at his handsome visage for a moment or two before leaving my blog. He has the best scowl ever. And I think he’s the most gorgeous actor next to James Purefoy.
