    3. I do love male prewar costumes, though in period set series, female ones not so much, only from a deeper past

  3. That's too bad about Will, but if it's as bad as you said it was, it has no business on the air. I'll be catching up on Harlots later next month when the girls are back in school. I'll be sure to add Picnic at Hanging Rock to my playlist. I do love eccentric characters, so this one sounds like it's my kind of show.

    1. Will is almost unwatchable, I'm sticking to it because Laurie Davidson is overwhelmingly radiant and I just can't take my eyes off of him. I will watch Harlots this summer too!

  4. Try the original 1975 movie Picnic at hanging rock, with Anne Lambert as Miranda! Still a fantastic, haunting movie!
