It probably has not escaped your notice that I have been watching a ton of Lost lately. In the midst of this I also happened to check out the 1983 adaptation of Jane Eyre from the library. I've had it on request for ages and it finally came through a few weeks ago... so I picked it up, got distracted by Lost, meant to watch it, didn't have a chance, got my "friendly due date" reminder yesterday, was all set to renew it online and then just watch it later in the week -- AND GUESS WHAT? "NO RENEWALS AVAILABLE ON THIS ITEM." Just dandy. Like I said, I had been waiting FOREVER to watch this mini and I hated to take it back unviewed, so... yes. I just watched the whole thing. All 311 minutes. Oh, Timothy Dalton, why do you do this to me?

Thoughts )

Do you have a favorite Jane Eyre adaptation that I should add to my immediate MUST BE WATCHED list? (Knowing you all, I'm sure Toby Stephens is probably going to win, ha. DON'T WORRY, GUYS, ALREADY ON THE LIST.) Also, all of [livejournal.com profile] hulamoth's postings are now prompting me to check out Ivanhoe (never seen/read any of it! I'm so inexperienced!). And... and... hmm, what other minis do I have next to watch? Go ahead, rec away. (Or, if you're feeling truly adventuresome, you could also rec some actual books in case I somehow magically remember how to read -- but I'm facing a mass of airplane travel next month and will most certainly need something to keep me amused.)
