The Period Drama Challenge continues at Old-Fashioned Charm! So far, I have submitted three reviews (though two of the reviews count as one for The Pallisers). And as the Period Drama Challenge continues, Miss Laurie has put up another tag for February.
1. What period dramas have you watched in February?
Part 1 and Part 2 of my reviews if you're interested!
Now for the period dramas that you'll see an upcoming review of!
2. How many Charles Dickens adaptations have you seen?
|Why, yes: I did just throw in a picture of Jonathan Harris as |
Charles Dickens in Bonanza.
Bleak House (2005)
A Christmas Carol (1999)
A Christmas Carol (2009)
Great Expectations (1999)
Great Expectations (2011)
Little Dorrit (1988)
Little Dorrit (2008)
A Muppet's Christmas Carol (not sure if this counts, though. Seen it years ago)
So that would be eight counting A Muppet's Christmas Carol). I did start to watch Nicolas Nickleby once, but then Netflix took it off. :-(
3. Do you prefer heroes that are spotless wealthy gentlemen or gritty hardworking men?
|I feel like poor Mr. Knightley doesn't get enough face time here, |
so here he is!
4. Do you tend to prefer heroines that are sweet and gentle or adventurous and spunky?
|Lizzy and Mr. Darcy|
I do like both and I can think of examples of both types that are favorites of mine... But if I had to pick one? Probably adventurous and spunky since they tend to be more interesting and have some really witty lines.
5. Do you enjoy listening to period drama soundtracks? Do you own any?
YES! Of course! One of the things I like about Movies, Miniseries, TV Shows, and Video Games is the soundtrack (provided that it's a good soundtrack). I own a couple in CDs (I'm old fashioned that way; I still like to own the CDs and then rip the songs to put on my Zune).
So, there you have the February tag!
