Very grateful for this recent post on social media
and a comment from a talk group:
Well, it’s rather like watching a DH Lawrence novel come alive. Sons and Lovers and all that.I don’t want to be read as making light of anything because I believe Mr. Finch wrote it in a crucible of personal pain and knowledge, and that accounts for the series’ accuracy and detail. And, for what it’s worth, I appreciate the absence of music (although John McCabe’s piping trumpet and flute theme does stay in the head), not turning “real life” into a literal melodrama.One stunning aspect is that several of the lead actors died before old age: Alethea Charlton, James Hazeldine, Mark McManus, Ray Smith, John Price (among those I’ve so far seen).It’s been a truism for well over 50 years: the very best American television is…British!Please take us back…we honestly don’t know how to behave ourselves!
