my FAVORITE book! can't wait to see it!

Wh-whaat? How'd I miss this? I absolutely adore this book. I'll definitely check it out!

Thanks for the heads up! I had no idea. And I don't have television, but I found it online:


I ordered it on DVD. Almost makes me wish I'll catch cold so I can sit at home all day and watch it!

I don't own a television, but I was very excited to discover that for the next two weeks, the entire movie can be seen online. Yay!

I'm so sad that I missed this. I didn't know it was on last night. Woe to me.

Love this tale, though the tragic nature of it haunts me for some time after I read it, no matter how many times I read it!

i saw it and had anxiety the entire time ;). it is beautiful, but i do love the version with natasha kinski, too.

Isn't it wonderful? Isn't she just so beautiful? We had it England a while back, and yeah; I sobbed and sobbed!

I had no idea it was on! But I am bookmarking the online viewing site.

Are you going to watch Cyrano with J. Garner and Kevin Kline? I think it is on the 7th, PBS naturally.

Oh ... this killed me. And the next episode will be even more agonizing! I'm shaking my fist at you, Angel Clare!

Masterpiece has a really great lineup this year. It's my favorite thing, to curl up on my couch Sunday night with a mug of soup and get lost in literary adaptations!

I have always loved this show, my personal favorite is the version with Justine Waddell, but this one was pretty good so far.

I watched it and loved it. Except it was terribly sad! But oh well, all the good novels end that way I guess :) I can't wait for the next episode although I have a feeling it will get even more sad. I liked the costumes and scenery.

Oh yay! Can't wait to watch it online! Thanks for the heads up.

I watched and it was so beautiful ... only wish we didn't have to wait a whole week for the next segment. I LOVE Masterpiece on Sunday nights, a great way to start the week.

I Loooooved it! I almost didn't watch because the story is so sad, but I couldn't help myself, and I'm glad.

Oh, yes! I definitely watched it. The novel is so grim, but this Masterpiece version looks so beautiful. I cannot wait until next Sunday night!

i watched it all but the last twenty minutes (have it recorded and can't wait to watch the rest, and part two.
it is gorgeous, and the actress that plays tess is so beautiful!
also, i love how these masterpiece productions always follow the book surprisingly well.

One summer I decided to read all the Thomas Hardy books, starting with Tess and ending with Jude the Obscure. Note to readers: Do not try that at home, unless you plan to check yourself into a depression clinic of some sort. Egads.

I agree with Marcey. The A&E Justine Waddell/Oliver Milburn version was my favorite so far! But yeah, I love the book and I'll welcome any new chances to see it done again. Can't wait for Sunday.

Yes I did. I am a massive Masterpiece fan, much to my husband chagrin. Loved it!

I missed it, but this photo looks so beautiful!

Aw! I misseed it! Thanks to all who posted the link to watch it online! I definately want to see it!

I love this version. It's so beautiful and green! But I don't know if I can watch the second part. It's just beyond devastating. Poor Tess! Sometimes I wish that she could live in a Jane Austen book, just for a little while.

I agree with another reader--Masterpiece Theater has a great line up this season. Can't wait for Little Dorrit.

PS-- Love you blog.

How did I miss that?!!? I love PBS masterpiece theater... oh my!

i absolutely love this book--i will have to see the film!

OMG hmk, you read my mind! IWhile watching online, I remember thinking that Tess really needs a nice, long dip into Jane Austen's world. My, how different those two worlds are.

Gemma Arterton, who plays Tess, has also been a Bond girl. She's pretty famous in the UK.

ah, i caught it, it was amazing! i can't wait till next week!

to everyone who missed it, it can be watched on their website! :)

i had no idea! i remember this book from school... Guess I better buy that converter box thing after all :)

oh shoot i missed it!
i'll have to check the schedule!

I love Tess!

It was amazing! I was so impressed with how well it was done. My mom and I are were dumstruck when it was tbc. Sigh!!!
