Poldark (TV Series 2015)

Here's one of those BBC series that I used to think was dreadfully boring but instead I found myself clicking the next button a bunch of times after each episode finished up.

The story is about this British guy in the late 18th century who returns from the American Revolutionary War to his lands in England, as he was from a minor aristocratic family. He sets up shop and tries to get his life together and for some reason an interesting story formed around this premise.

The character struck me as sorta an ass, but sometimes he made some positive decisions so I suppose he was a good enough character to root for. I like the way these British folk form their sentences though...the dialog can get interesting and makes you feel like you're in a fancy library.

Again, I never thought I would enjoy a whole BBC series, but I guess that's what happens when you get older. Before you know it I might be donating to PBS...or not I'm too cheap for that.
