Better than expected
Just finished watching the first episode and was very happy with this vision of Dickens Masterpiece. Well worth the price to add this film to any period collection.
Fantastic version of the Dickens classic. Just a heads up... You can watch it for free using the PBS app available in the app store.
Pip is too cute
This guy looks like a Gucci model, it's kind of hard to take him seriously. At first I was really taken by his gorgeousness but then I was paying attention to him, especially next to David Suchet who so far is the best performer for me, and he seemed really stiff and lost. This sounds mean, but watching him I kept feeling like I was watching someone who was struggling with the task of being in a part they knew they didn't actually deserve.
