Than you again, Miss Laurie -- this is such fun! :)

And here are my January tag answers:

Birdie said...

Unfortunately I haven't had time yet to write a review this January. I'm super busy with work at the moment, but things are going to slow down soon, so yay!

1. I finished watching Poldark
2. That's a tough choice between Bleak House and Our Mutual Friend, but maybe I'd go for Our Mutual Friend in the end, because I really love the romances in that
3. Downton Abbey I think, because the house plays such a big role in the series
4. I wouldn't mind being Aunt Gardiner from P&P. Looking in from the sidelines and all that...
5. I need to choose which series to watch now that I've finished Poldark, maybe Home Fires or ANZAC girls?

So far this month, I've reviewed The Mark of Zorro (1974) here, and Shane (1953) here.

And I'd like to let you and the other participants know that I'm holding a giveaway right now here -- I'm giving away four western movies on DVD, all of which would totally be great to review for the Period Drama Challenge :-) It runs through February 25th.

I also reviewed Risen in February, and I thought I was going to get one more review done before the end of the month, but that's not looking likely, so oh well. More for March!
