Period Drama Challenge Tag Answers ~ March 2016

It's time for the March Period Drama Challenge tag questions! (Yes, I know. It's been well over a week since Miss Laurie posted these, so thank you so much for sweetly bearing with me... ;)) Here goes!

1. What period dramas did you view in March?

A couple episodes of the classic 1956 Buccaneers with Robert Shaw

and some Lark Rise to Candleford.

2. What is your favorite period drama soundtrack?

(Among my multitudinous favorites) at the moment probably Cinderella 2015. Or the '09 Emma.

3. If you could attend a ball in a Jane Austen story what would be the color of your ballgown and who would you dance with?

Oh my... so many hues and shades, and I love so many! Talk about a terribly difficult choice. Well, going with one I wear regularly I'd say blue, but I have so many ideas it's rather impossible on short notice. I also love pinks of all sorts... and mint green... and I've seen one coral colored lace dress that's gorgeous. As for a partner, Mr. Knightley.

4. Do you prefer watching period dramas by yourself or with friends/family? Why?

Hmmm. It depends. I've done a lot of both solo and family watching. I can enjoy either way, but I really like it when my family/friends/cohorts/companions-in-arms like whatever-it-is nearly (or as much) as yours truly, otherwise it's just Uncomfortable and Not So Much Fun. It's all in the time-tested rule of having similar standards and frames of reference and coinciding senses of humor -- being able to catch and laugh over the same quirky hilarity together.

5. What period dramas are you looking forward to viewing in April 2016?

Not a lot this month... Maybe a Zorro or Robin Hood episode? (But don't worry, I have a rather staggering list for May, but that's the subject of a future post... :)) So we shall see!

Tell me! Do we have any answers in common? And how is spring deliciously appearing in your corner of the world?


  1. I've come to the not so surprising conclusion that life would be terribly boring without period dramas. I like living in another era!

    I've never seen The Buccaneers, but I did watch a Yul Brynner movie by almost the same name years and years ago. It was quite good!

  2. How did you enjoy Lark Rise to Candleford? (What season were you watching?)

    Oooh! Mint green! I LOVE mint green! Actually I love anything pastel...pink, blue, yellow. Those are what I call "yummy" colors! :) Unfortunately, it's not always easy to find clothes in those shades...which is really sad. :(

    Oh, I agree. It's not much fun to watch a movie with someone who doesn't have the same sense of humor as you do. Laughing by yourself in a room full of people is just lame. ;) However when you do find that person who will laugh and cry and sigh over the same parts you do...well then, it's the best fun ever!!! :D

    Haha. Spring? What's Spring? The trees are blossoming, the grass is growing, and we just had snow last week. Heehee. Yeah, it's a little bit confusing. ;)

  3. Hello, Nick and Nora! Aren't they the cutest married couple? I adore them. One of these days I'm going to re-watch all those movies and write up reviews on them.


Oh, you're thinking of leaving a comment! How entirely lovely -- thank you and please do!! :) I just ask that all comments be God-honoring and edifying. (And btw, I LOVE comments on old posts! ;))
