get your bronte on, yo

Until February 1st, you can watch PBS' new Masterpiece Theatre adaptation of Wuthering Heights online! Episode 1 is here; the second and final episode premiers Sunday.

Sure, it's a depressing story with depraved and/or diabolical characters.  The setting is bleak and the ending is bleaker.  But -- and here's why I'm watching the movie though I can't stand the book -- it's so darn pretty.

Fancy costumes + fancy British elocution = I will watch whatever the heck you put before me.  

And online? With Burn Gorman (aka Bleak House's Guppy)?  Wild horses couldn't keep me away.


  1. Yay! You're writing again.
    Twilight turned my interest to Wuthering Heights. I just bought it, and then Odie ate it. Maybe it's a sign: the movie sounds like a great idea. :)

  2. How funny -- what's the Twilight / Wuthering connection?

    I just netflixed an early version of Wuthering with Juliette Binoche, Ralph Fiennes and Jeremy Northam! Glory glory!

  3. I am gonna watch it ASAP! Thanks for getting the word out abut it!
