^^ Yeah, that was a good episode and he's a really funny character. I've got through the first season now and have the second queued up on Netflix.

Jared's ride in Peter Gregory's car was great too.
Peter Gregory was my favorite character. I really loved how they dealt with the death of the actor and used that to goose the character arcs in the series. what a splendid cast.

Can a four part dramatization of E. M. Forster's masterpiece, Howards End be more Powerful than the film of 20 years ago that won 3 Oscars ? I think it's got a good shot based on the first 2 episodes.
Hayley Atwell, (who is being mentored by Emma Thompson to "find your own Margaret") is a strong female lead as Margaret Schlegel and Leonard Bast is incredibly poignant and is perfectly played by Joseph Quinn.

There are two more hour-long episodes ahead to conclude the story...

I have to agree. EM Forster is a tedious writer whose work can't be updated in any interesting way.

I started watching the Netflix TV-reboot of Spike Jonze's "She's got it" and I am hooked.

While waiting for my season 2 set to come in, i'm watching this from episode one again. Fantastic stuff. No other show of its kind has such a detailed and believable story-universe.

Meanwhile, filming on season 3 has wrapped.
