This is the episode that I have been waiting for with bated breath (literally…my face is so blue it looks like I freebased a Smurf) so, until I get this off my heart I won’t be able to think of anything else so I apologize but…
ROSS FALLS IN LOVE WITH DEMELZA!
Hot damn! I was so impressed with how they portrayed that moment…that lovely singing scene where Demelza goes for it and sweetly sings out her love for Ross for him to either take or shun…risking it all; shy but strong; tender but passionate; innocent but sexy; in a crowded room but so very alone together….shit…I am starting to cry even as I write this. I am a bloody wreck.
*runs off to blow nose and replenish wine glass*
I am too verklempt to write in detail now…so overcome by the utter and complete beauty of Aidan and Eleanor killing that scene and the following ones that draw near the end…bloody hell…I *sigh*...I guess I'll have to review
Episode 4 in memes Instead:
*click pic to enlarge!*
Ep 4 begins with gorgeous Rosscenery. There may have been scenes before this but really, who cares? R&D are married!
Ooops! Wrong Aidan movie...please ignore
Word is finally out
Jud The Lush and Prudie The Eloquent figure out how lucky they are after all:
Times are a'changin'...
Charles Poldark never learned to reverse anything that came out of his doctors mouth:
*sorry, couldn't resist*
WOOHOO! I'm so excited, you'd think I'd helped conceive it.
Ross likes a pre-dinner snack
Christmas at Trenwith: Demelza is in awe of Old Money Opulence...
How I felt watching them:
But maybe that's just me.
*Yes, this joke ages me...ah well...
DUE TO BUDGET CONSTRAINTS, THE SET DESIGN LOST SOME OF ITS PERIOD AUTHENTICITY
*such a shame*
DIRECTOR ED BAZALGETTE SHOULD WIN AN EMMY OR OSCAR OR WHATEVER AWARD CELEBRATES EXCELLENCE IN THE USE OF INTERLACING LYRICS AND VISUAL STORYTELLING...BRAVO! I LOVE IT WHEN YOU CAN SEE THE CREATIVITY AND CARE TAKEN TO MAKE THINGS PERFECT...
I NEVER THOUGHT I'D SAY THIS, BUT THIS NEXT SCENE BEATS THE MR.DARCY-LOOKS -LOVINGLY-AT- ELIZABETH-AT-THE-PIANO SCENE:
THE BLINK FELT 'ROUND THE WORLD
(he is so overwhelmed by the confession of love in her song and the depth of his feelings and awareness of his newly awakened love, he forgets to blink until it's over. It's like his heart skips a beat and reminds him to breathe again)
A near Cardiac Even for millions of women
*I grinned like an idiot with him, like we just shared a private secret*
FIRST WAS BRANGELINA (BRAD PITT & ANGELINA JOLIE), THEN BENNIFER (BEN AFFLECK & JENNIFER LOPEZ) AND THEN TOMKAT (TOM CRUISE AND KATIE HOLMES)...SO NOW MAKE WAY FOR
