A Quick Diversion

I know I said I was on vacation, but I couldn't go without passing on this bit of news:

After bawling my eyes out* last week watching the rerun showing of Cranford on PBS, I was elated to find out a new chapter to the saga; Return to Cranford, is premiering tomorrow. So if you were a fan of the original I suggest you plop yourself down in front of the TV with some cake and a hot cup of tea. It may or may not be as satisfying as the first one (I vow not to go and check the British reviews) but I'm sure it will still be a great treat.

And again, I'll see you in a bit! :)


*In fact, I believe I cried more this time than during the first viewing.

This is my FAVORITE movie ever! I have Cranford on DVD and have watched it many times and was delighted to hear about Return to Cranford. Can't wait to see it tomorrow night and HOPE to get to see the ending of it next week (I'll be in DC so I will have to see if I can catch it.)

Love love love it! So glad to see that others appreciate it too.

Cheers,

Thanks for the heads up on Return to Cranford. Cranford was one of my favorite PBS series. I will definitely be tuned in tonight. Since they changed the TV section of the local newspaper, I never seem to find out about new series or season premiers anymore.

Remember Audrey, we have three PBS stations here in Richmond, so you can also catch it Wednesday night on another one of them.
