Anyhoo, I watched Wives and Daughters last week. It was 5 hours, so it took me about 4 days, but it was great. Sometimes, I didn't want to watch it because it was a leeeetle bit boring, but once I started, I was hooked. (It probably didn't help that I was dying to watch Macgyver either ;) I haven't seen a period drama in a few years *gasp* yes, I know (Macgyver is better BTW :D ), but this was a good one.
|Probably favorite dress!|
|I like this bonnet/apron/dress!|
|So glad he shaved his beard!!|
I love Molly and Roger together! I would ship it too, but since they are already together, I don't know if that's allowed :D Their love story is so sweet. They start in brother and sister relationship which is really sweet because they're good friends.
|This was hilarious!!! And how she kept mentioning it "Well, he gave me a wasps' nest." :D|
And then Molly realizes she loves him, but sweet girl that she is, doesn't tell Cynthia. Finally, Roger realizes that he loves her, and after mutual misunderstandings, this happens.
|Probably best engagement I've seen!|
The beautiful engagement in the rain. Although Molly did sound weird because she kept saying yes with a most peculiar expression on her face. Also it was slightly amusing because they couldn't touch each other, so they just stared across that space. But the watcher was saved from some kissing scenes and it was sweeter that way.

Moving on, I didn't really like Hyacinth Claire Gibson or Cynthia, not that I think she's a villain, I just didn't like her. It was interesting how Hyacinth kept saying that she was unselfish as all she can think about is marrying her daughters off (like another poor, nervous lady you know). When Osborne dies, all she can think of is that she is glad he did not marry because he wouldn't be the heir!!! Ugh!!!
|Nothing to do with Mrs. Gibson or Cynthia, but somebody PLEASE bring back capes and cloaks!!|
Osborne is okay, but he still should have told his dad about his wife!!! The squire is very nice, just a little too rash and hard on his sons, I think. I love this line!
|I am so using this!!!|
|As the movie ends, so ends this post.|
