Watching England

I have always loved English period pictures. I think my favorites are Howard's End, Pride & Prejudice, Sense & Sensibility and Enchanted April. When I am sewing I love to watch a movie or show but don't have a television in my little sewing nook. So I use my computer and Netflix!

I have been instant downloading so many fun English dramas. Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, North & South, Daniel Deronda, you name it! It's been so fun because I feel like I'm being productive (not just watching mindlessly:) and I don't have to worry about anyone else saying, "why do we have to watch this?".
By far my favorite has been the Masterpiece series "Downton Abbey". Talk about your tales of ribaldry! Seriously addicting. I'm just praying they continue with it, I am so hooked! If you love English dramas, do watch (said in my best English accent).
On another movie note; I can't wait to run to the theater to see "The King's Speech" when it's release in PG-13 this weekend! I have been dying to see my Colin Firth in his Oscar winning performance (I don't do Rated R movies). Yay for me!

I love this post!!! I have been doing the same thing lately. I bought Downton Abbey at Costco and the Emma (Masterpiece Theatre) movie. Oh... I am in love with the period pieces too! I also like Albert and Victoria, Cranford and Wives and Daughters. I have a computer in my craft room and I call it my MOM Cave so that is where I watch movies and I totally love it! I am addicted right now and am always looking on Amazon for any movies that I may have missed. Please share any recommendations!
