1. Oh, gosh. Was on vacation for a whole week in January. Lost count. Is that bad?
2. The dramatic darker ones. Jane Eyre. *sob*
3. My first was Anne of Green Gables (that counts, right?) when I was a little girl. We had to wait a week, A WHOLE WEEK, between the parts. I have it on DVD now so I can watch whenever I want. No waiting. As God as my witness, I'll never be hungry (for Green Gables) again!
4. Hmmmmmm. I was supposed to be counting? I fail this question.
5. I look forward to watching a newer version of Sense and Sensibility after reading a review here...can you imagine?

Melody said...

Can't resist tag questions! ;)
1. Hmm... Cranford, seasons 1 & 2 of Wind at My Back (heehee), the Heidi that has Jane Seymour in it (I was raiding our video tape collection when I was sick a couple weeks ago), probably some others I'm forgetting...
2. Well, both is nice, but if I had to choose one or t'other... I'd probably get weary of too much dark emotions, so I'll say humor.
3. Oh my! Not sure... well, I think that A Little Princess from the 80s is a miniseries? If so, I think that would be it.
4. Haha. Never counted. So... I shall. That would be... 17. Wow.
5. Much Ado About Nothing, I think. (Mousie is going to tell me where to skip on YouTube. ;))

Great questions!

Rhoswen Faerie Wrose said...

Uhg! I know I haven't gotten any reviews done yet, but I've been sick most of the month and not very up to watching anything but mindless stuff.
However, once I'm up to it, I have only the last episode on DA season 1 to watch, and it shall be reviewed!

Hamlette said...

Is it okay if I keep posting links to reviews here? Or is there somewhere else you would prefer I put them?

Anyway, here's my review of the double-episode pilot of the TV series "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman"

http://hamlette.blogspot.com/2013/02/dr-quinn-medicine-woman-1993-review-and.html

Also, I'm giving away a brand-new copy of this series' first season! Details in that same post.

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Hamlette,
Yes, it's okay for you to continue to post the links to your reviews here but it might be better if you post your review links on the original Period Drama Challenge post that is linked to the buttons. Oooh, a giveaway! How exciting! :)

Hamlette said...

Right! That's easier to find, anyway. Thanks!

And yes -- a giveaway! Open through March 7.
