Watched Part One on Masterpiece last night. I'm enjoying it so far but can't help but compare it against the movie with Emma Thompson, Kate Winslet, Hugh Grant, and Alan Rickman, and directed by Ang Lee.
Is it just me or does the guy playing Edward Ferrars look and act like Hugh Grant? And I feel bad for the guy playing Col. Brandon because he'll always be compared to Alan Rickman.
What I do like is that there is more backstory given and shown. And Sir John Middleton is played by Mark Williams, who played Mr. Weasley.
