Does anyone else watch the BBC series, Call the Midwife?
I absolutely love this series. We have currently only seen two episodes from series two but I have seen the tweets from further episodes. I cannot wait for this series to continue on throughout our screening. All of the characters are so interesting and well thought out. I know it’s based on a memoir of Jennifer Worth’s life as a midwife. The characters are just so vibrant and the cast does such a wonderful job bringing them back to life every time. I wonder what the women that the cast is portraying say about the series?
Here in the United States, we’re able to catch the series on PBS and watch it online here.
Fans are amazing! This project was put on Kickstarter one day ago and it has already been completely funded. ONE. Day. Ago.
One day and it has been fully backed. TWO MILLION dollars in one…well now two days but still. During its first day it made 1 million dollars. In your face WB, the fans have spoken in two days and BAM! All they had to raise was 2,000,000 dollars but now they have 2,807,086 dollars backing this project. I am that is just AMAZING!
I’m not going to lie, I haven’t really ever watched Veronica Mars even though I am a big fan of strong female lead roles that happen to be detectives plus throwing in the fact that the character was in high school transitioning to college at the time makes it even totally better! At the time I was too busy practicing some flippy and twisty stuff in a chalk infested building…I did manage to catch a few episodes here and there but I was also a Whedon fan. Sorry.
Well, any of you fans that haven’t backed this project still have time. there are 29 days left although I’m pretty sure the movie will be made this summer regardless. Who knows, maybe they’ll bring about a revival of the show for an older audience since, well being honest, all the shows on the television are crime drama related and the movie is taking a point after Veronica’s life at college. Not so much a teenage drama anymore, but then again, it may on up a new market. Old fans plus new fans generates even greater fan following which equals revenue. I really don’t know what I’m thinking at this point. But, if you’re a fan and some how haven’t caught wind of this, check it out!
In 19th-century France, Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman), who for decades has been hunted by the ruthless policeman Javert (Russell Crowe) after he breaks parole, agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s (Anne Hathaway) daughter, Cosette (Amanda Seyfried). The fateful decision changes their lives forever. (IMDB)
An early screening release of Les Miserable earned itself a standing ovation from audience members.
The unique thing about this film is that the cast all sung live. Meaning they weren’t recorded in a booth and lip synched in. They did hit some bumps in the road but it seems like everything smoothed itself out. So in truth, this is a musical play shot on screen with movie glitz and glam.

If you’re interested in the actual story, Wikipedia has it all laid out very nicely as usual. (Les Miserables)
