Anyone watching?

BowlingShoes Sun 12-Nov-17 21:10:49

I am. I thought the film version was very good so not sure how it will compare.

Braceface Sun 12-Nov-17 21:13:11

Not got into it yet.

Akire Sun 12-Nov-17 21:13:17

Never read book or seen film. Totally lost as to who’s who and half woman look the same.

I don't know it either, but I love a period drama. It's got to do a bit more to grip me yet though.

Finding it hard to take Tracey Ullman seriously and surely she is far too tanned??

Braceface Sun 12-Nov-17 21:20:37

Can't stand Tracy Ullman which is putting me off.

Trailedanderror Sun 12-Nov-17 21:24:01

They do all look very similar!

QueenOfTheAndals Sun 12-Nov-17 21:24:13

I keep expecting her to break into her Angela Merkel impersonation!

Strange to see Julia Ormond playing the family matriarch as I remember her being touted as the Next Big Thing in the 90s with Sabrina and Legends of the Fall.

its dire

fgs bbc get your act together

tracey ullman - whyyyy. she's hardly a decent actress.grrrr.

SaigonSaigon Sun 12-Nov-17 21:26:05

Turned over now. Couldn't tap into it. It wasn't flowing - really hard editing. Nope. Sorry BBC1.

Braceface Sun 12-Nov-17 21:26:56

It's not very good is it.

QueenOfTheAndals Sun 12-Nov-17 21:27:34

Ugh, the creepy paedo kid from the last series of Black Mirror is Tibby confused

LouiseBrooks Sun 12-Nov-17 21:27:37

I can't help thinking of the film but It looks beautiful and I want that house!

Julia Ormond as Mrs Wilcox - I remember when she was the new young thing and now she's all matronly!

BurnTheBlackSuit Sun 12-Nov-17 21:28:17

I thought I might like it, but I think I am suffering from not knowing the story and I can't get it at all. Women look the same, everyone is mumbling and the music is too loud (and I'm not that old!). I am lost and bored as a result.

BBC seem to have forgotten that some people haven't seen the film or read the book.

Nice scenery though.

Terrylene Sun 12-Nov-17 21:28:33

She really isn't very good at all.

Akire Sun 12-Nov-17 21:28:43

GAve up 10m ago. Who the hell is who And why is one of them obsessed over the Wilcox’s? Are they supposed be neighbours, family or in laws?

Braceface Sun 12-Nov-17 21:29:11

Queen that sounds disturbing!

FedUpWithBriiiiiick Sun 12-Nov-17 21:29:48

It’s shite. Turned off now.

Tibby was doing my titties in 😂

Terrylene Sun 12-Nov-17 21:30:14

Tracey ullman, that is. Surely there are plenty older actual actresses around.

justforthisthread101 Sun 12-Nov-17 21:30:39

It’s utterly incomprehensible. And I’ve read the book!

PortiaCastis Sun 12-Nov-17 21:30:45

The beethoven has been the best bit so far

QueenOfTheAndals Sun 12-Nov-17 21:31:06

Leonard Bast looks about 15!

SamanthaBrique Sun 12-Nov-17 21:33:00

Rather random appearance from some Japanese ladies in kimonos there!

OstentatiousWanking Sun 12-Nov-17 21:33:35

I'm quite enjoying it. Not families with the book at all.

LevelHeading Sun 12-Nov-17 21:34:08

I can't tell who is who and haven't read the book/seen the film.

Who are the Wilcox family in relation to the other family?
