Gentleman Jack S1:E07 Why’ve You Brought That? Recap

I'm quite nervous about Gentleman Jack this week, although it's been renewed for a second season (YAY), there are only two more currently filmed and this is one of them! Gak! I will focus on the glass half full aspect; I really do feel lucky that we even get to see a story such as this and Suranne Jones has been magnificent as Anne Lister. No less finely rendered is Sophie Rundle's Ann Walker, Sally Wainwright has absolutely done it again. Let's roll with large hearts and bigger hankies into the penultimate episode of Gentleman Jack!

Gentleman Jack S1:E04 Most Women Are Dull and Stupid Recap

Woooo it's time for my favourite part of the week when I getta watch Gentleman Jack with Suranne Jones and Sophie Rundle! Everything on this show is so well done; the love whose name we shall not spaketh (OH WE'RE GOING TO SPAKE IT), the exquisite (yet sometimes still somehow ugly) costuming, so many shiny bits to catch our attention. At its gooey center, however, it's a tale of every era: of the extraordinary and the discomfort it that follows from being among the status quo. Onward to the continuing tale of the indomitable Anne Lister!
