OK. Just calmly sit down and brace yourself. Are you sitting down? It's your fault if you're not...
BBC America is making Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell into a mini series!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Are you okay? Do you need a paper bag? Here, you can use mine. I've finally got my breathing under control.
This. Is. Huge.
I'm talking as-big-as-the-book-huge. JS&MN (I just abbreviated it for you...trademark) is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE BOOKS. I will admit to having a huge crush on Jonathan Strange and I'm not even a little embarrassed by that.
I know a lot of people dread when their favorite books are made into movies. But ever since the Harry Potter era, I have reached a certain inner calmness with movies based on favorite books. It's easy for me to separate each version as it's own piece of art/entertainment. I never compare them and so one does not diminish the other. And anyway, it's BBC. They make Sherlock. Enough said.
Here's more info on the miniseries.
Now, does anyone get BBC America and want to invite me over to watch it?
