Appears that complete episodes are available on YouTube
We watched 90-minutes of Episode 1 that aired last night.
We liked it, though it was NOT what we were expecting. Not lavish drama. But, interesting and intriguing. Definitely captivates you.
We will finish it tomorrow and we are already looking forward to the next episode.
Wanted to make sure I shared it with you.
Check it out. PBS will air it at least once this week (most likely on Saturday) and it is available online.
Watched it (off DVR) tonight and were delighted. Yes, yes, it lives up to expectations. As good as the prior seasons, albeit just based on this very first episode. Gripping subject — the French Revolution across the Channel. We were captivated.
That none of the cast get any older, though about 9-years have passed, since we first met her, is a bit disconcerting, but it is nice to have all the familiar faces about.
Yes, definitely recommended. Try and catch it. PBS will be showing Episode 1 all week.
We have so far watched episode 1 and most of episode 2. It is very good, indeed. Lavishly and painstakingly produced. Visually very pleasing.
Compelling story too. No, I had not read William Makepeace Thackeray’s book (alas). Classic mid-19th century period drama. Reminded me of “Howards End“, “Importance of being Earnest” & “Wuthering Heights”.
Definitely worth watching. Very rewarding.
I am glad that I got an e-mail from Prime giving me a heads-up on the availability of this series.
So, now I am passing this on. A ‘Prime Original’. Money well spent by Amazon. Bravo.
Saw the trailer for Season 3 on PBS the other day and it made our day. Loved Seasons 1 & 2. Don’t think we realized that there was going to be a Season 3. Sure glad there is.
Looking back I see that Season 2 premiered in January 2018. So, Season 3 is coming exactly a year later. So, that must have been the plan all along.
Sure pleased. Wanted to share with you. Now you know. I will remind you, closer to the start.
Over three decades PBS ‘Masterpiece Theatre‘ has rarely, if ever, disappointed I. So, when I happened to see the trailer for ‘The Miniaturist’ I took note. I recorded it on Sunday and watched it today.
It is definitely worthy of being labeled ‘Masterpiece’. It was gripping from the start.
Yes, given that it is set in Amsterdam, in the same timeframe, it will remind you of ‘Girl With A Pearl Earring‘ (the 2003 movie). This is better. So, just before writing this I did some research and found what I shared with you before. Not a true story, out-and-out. But, the people and the actual dollhouse are real. Then there is divergence. But, it is OK.
Helps if you know a tad about Calvinism and its hold on The Netherlands in the 17th century. But, not appreciating the subtleties will not detract.
I enjoyed it, immensely. Highly recommend it. It is PBS, so you should be able to catch the episode, on air during this week, on the Web.
“Victoria” Season 2, On PBS “Masterpiece”, Now — Continues The Magnificence Of Season 1, Seamlessly.
It just carried on from Season 1 with nary a dissapointment. Yes, the Queen’s dresser, the lady from Wales, has left but that is about it.
Maintains the same, well-paced cadence. Beautifully shot. It is indeed a Masterpiece.
A definite MUST WATCH.
“Victoria” on PBS “Masterpiece“, earlier this year, was very engaging, educational and easy on the eye. We watched every episode, greedily. Did NOT realize, until we suddenly saw a trailer for it on PBS today, that there was a Season 2. We are delighted. Can’t wait. It should be good.
So, this is a heads up.
They are going to rerun Season 1 starting December 17, 2017.
