Why I Wednesdays... Favorite Movie/TV Adaptations

Reflections of a Bookaholic

I am returning with my feature... Why I love which takes place on Wednesdays. Today's proclamation of love concerns our Favorite Movie/TV Adaptations

Why I Love... BBC Series North and South


Well I'm going to surprise everybody and pick something totally unexpected, though very much true.  My favorite movie/tv adaptations are slowly increasing but I wanted to bypass some of my more predictable choices (The Hunger Games, Vampire Diaries, Pride & Prejudice, and on and on).

This week I was inspired to write about my love of the North and South (the BBC series version).  I found this version through Netflix online streaming.  I never expected to love it but I needed some background noise while I cooked.  A few hours and one lean pocket later (since I abandoned my cooking for another day), I realized that I had stumbled upon a gem.  The characters slowly wormed their way into my heart and the romance made my eyes water (just a bit).  This was the perfect night-in find.  I even watched a couple of the episodes twice!  Who does that?!  Honestly, this was one of my favorite finds on Netflix to date.

Which adaptations do you love? Feel free to create your own post and link up.  Don't want to create an entire post?  Tell me your favorites in the comments.  Thanks for stopping by for another week of Why I Love Wednesdays!!

    1. Yes! I'm actually glad that I'm not alone. I was sitting her looking at an empty post forever trying to decide whether people were going to think i was crazy.

  2. I've never even heard of this I don't think. If I ever get Netflix I'll have to look this series up. I tend to enjoy historical series/movies.

    1. You need to get Netflix. Totally worth it. Then you can watch the Vampire Diaries.

  3. Why is this question so hard?! I thought it would be easy. :) I think my favorite TV adaptation might be The Dead Zone. It started out very close to the book and then stayed a show I enjoyed watching.

  7. YES!! I freaking adore North & South. I discovered it on Netflix, too... my Mom and I were watching mini-series together one weekend and stumbled across it. I fell in love so quickly, and I asked for the DVD set for Christmas last year. =b I definitely need to watch it again soon.
