Ahhhh such a bittersweet moment, I could not wait to be able to sit down and watch the season finale of Gentleman Jack but then: this is the last we shall see of our intrepid Anne Lister for at least a year! Sally Wainwright has done an amazing job of dramatization, Suranne Jones has been magnificent and the story is just so interesting, I can’t even say how bereft we’ll all undoubtedly be feeling in approximately three hours. Well, let’s get to it, ladies and gents and our non-binary, we’ve got an excellent show to go over.

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.

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!
