    No tears for me either, but that might be because I was doing the ironing at the time. Distraction. Great ending though and I love the commentary. Interesting point about the switch from third to first person.

    Thank you.

    I never had any interest in a Tale of Two Cities and I loved it! I’ve seen many of the BBC (and other) adaptations of many other of his novels/short stories so now need to see this.

    I think I must be cold-hearted though as no tears for me – which is just as well as I listen on my drive to/from work and that wouldn’t have been safe!

    I got all choked during the last chapter, just as you predicted.

    How’s Freshman Comp going?

    I loved Tale of Two Cities more than I ever thought I would. It is okay if the podcasts are late. We understand you are busy. Good luck with your first week of teaching. I’m envious of your students. I still have bad memories of Freshman Comp.

    Hey LadyJ…15, 16, 17 should be back. Let me know if there are other glitches!

    I think you’re right.
    Though it turns out Andrew caught about 15 minutes of it in a hotel room somewhere and said (as every critic I could find said) that Rufus Sewell (Fortinbras in Branaugh’s Hamlet) was spectacular. He thought it was an error in writing that King Marke became a sympathetic character, but there are surprises in store for all of us on this one!

    Thanks again for the kind words! I had a blast doing the hosting.

    Looking forward to Tristan and Isolde, mostly because I’d never pick it in a thousand years and it’s always good to be forced out of the boxes we make for ourselves. 🙂

    Also, I believe the bad movie everyone is talking about was the Ridley Scott one that came out last year (?) … for one thing imagine Ridley Scott directing that story (what little I know of it makes the mind boggle at that combo).

    Still trying to catch up but looking forward to “Tristan and Isolde”!
