PBS Movie Throwdown

Have you watched the first episode of Return to Cranford? If not, the episode will be shown online for the next two weeks on PBS's website. If you did, how did you think this episode stacked up to the original Cranford?

How do you like Return to Cranford, Episode One?
Loved it
Liked it
Not sure yet
It did not stack up to Cranford, 2008
I disliked it free polls

I wanted to love it as much as the first one but I suppose sequels have the hard task of matching up to the original. It was still good to see Miss Matty and company, and I loved seeing Jonathon Pryce and Celia Imrie! I did think that things picked up in the second episode!

Robin's Egg Bleu said... Septimus gay? That's what I assumed prior to this episode, that he was hiding his lifestyle from his mother, aside from being a selfish, pompous jerk.

Now it looks to me like he definitely is. Was this topic ever addressed in the book?

I loved it ! I laughed, I cried and I got so mad at Septimus that I yelled at the T.V.

In the former series, the actor who played Peter, Miss Matty's long lost brother is missing in this one...did he die in real life or did they just not ask him back ?
He was so much more handsome than the actor playing Peter now. ( I would have cast Sean Connery in the part if he would do it ) LOL

I already saw the whole series since I ordered from the UK. I liked it a lot but not as much as I liked the firt one.
