TV reports

How I missed this one when it first aired is beyond me.  It's right up my alley, it's British, it's got beautiful women, and it's period semi British class system based drama.  These three series tell the story of the ups and downs of the personal and professional lives of two sisters.  Left penniless by their recently deceased father the Elliot sisters go into business making dresses, slowly they build their business until they conquer their home country and the USA but there's always someone or something they must overcome.  It's all very entertaining if you like shows like Upstairs Downstairs, Downton Abbey, Duchess of Duke Street, and the like.  I found Louise Lombard to be mesmerizing.  If you like British period drama, this show is for you.

This one isn't bad but it's another of those good cop goes rogue and murders some guys to keep the streets safe dramas.  I'm just not into the 'ends justify the means' cop shows any more.  Murder is murder no matter how high minded the reasons.
