Oh, how I miss the A&E channel as it once was. Known as Arts and Entertainment, it introduced us to such shows as 1995s Pride and Prejudice and 1997s Jane Eyre. These days the network is known for Dog the Bounty Hunter, Intervention and Criss Angel Mindfreak. What a waste.
I had an opportunity to watch Jane Eyre recently, and had the pleasure of watching a few of my favorite English actors: Samantha Morton, Ciaran Hinds, Rupert Penry Jones, Elizabeth Garvie, and Gemma Jones. All have acted in a Jane Austen movie.
