BBC One's doing Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell

 So I guess you've all probably heard enough about this if you follow me on any other social platforms, but I don't even caaaaare, I'm in that floaty bubble where you mostly have not started thinking about all the ways the BBC could mess up that thing you care about.

First of all: nice gif (from an awesome film)!

Second, I feel your pain. Apparently BBC is going to be making some kind of a serialized Musketeer thing, which on the one hand could be my fantasy, but will more likely cause me to masochistically stab myself in the eye over and over again. :P

Third, that book is awesome and I wish I didn't have a memory span of a goldfish and remembered it in more detail. :(

A perfect example of the pathology you describe is their "Hollow Crown: Richard II". (Don't know if you're into that, but...) The whole thing was superbly done until the very end, when it dissolved into WTF and WHYYYY!
