Jane Eyre, 2006 BBC

It is said the heroine was a newcomer. She kinda look weird(which is OK ’cause you don’t need to look pretty to be Jane Eyre), but acted really good. The hero was sooooo cute! I wanna bite him. 😛 The part that Mr. Rochester proposed was great! I cried. T_T

The whole drama was in a dark atmosphere. I can hardly see anything. I haven’t watched Wuthering Heights yet but I guess it’s going to be darker than Jane Eyre. @@

As a kid I loved Jane Eyre better than Pride & Prejudice. Didn’t remember from what time did I start to prefer Pride & Prejudice more. Maybe because Jane Eyre was filled with challenges to the world while Pride & Prejudice was filled with compromises. Sad but true. 

Pride & Prejudice, 1980 BBC

I am a BIG P&P fan. I love the book and the 1995 BBC mini series so much that I can’t tell how many times I’ve read and watched them. 😀

This 1980 BBC mini series was 80% good if Elizabeth did not show happiness after Mr. Darcy’s first proposal. Now it’s only 60%. After the first time Mr. Darcy proposed and left, Elisabeth was thinking sweetly: “But in love with me for so many months? So much in love as to wish to marry me? … It is incredible! And quite gratifying.” WTF is this??!!!! This is definitely not Elizabeth Bennet!

Wild China, BBC+CCTV Documentary

Finally finished downloading the 720P Wild China, a total of 13G… The speed was slow, but it’s worth everything’s to see my most beautiful China. [泪] Good job my poor hard disk…

This documentary is good, but some parts are ridiculous. It says that the Han people built the Great Wall because of their fear of the Mongolians. The Great Wall was first built during the Warring States Period (476–221 BC), and had been rebuilt, lengthened and reinforced during 221 BC–AD 1644. The Mongolians were thought to originate in the middle of the 5th century, that was more than 600 hundred years after the Great Wall was first built. Also, it says hypocritically that Tibet has been a province of China for more than 50 years, which was not so easy to refute because this “China” means “PRC”. But in history Tibet had been a province of Chin since the Yuan Dynasty (AD 1271–1368). These are only 2 examples BBC used to disgust the Chinese. Thanks to the beauty of China that made me stay in front of the screen.

The part introducing ice sculptures in Haerbin is so adorable and lively! >_<

Wild China is actually a documentary of Chinese food… So much good food in the wild, I am starving!

The documentary says that the Chinese love game animals, but illegal hunting is banned by government, so merchants buy these animals from other countries, which caused the decrease of amount in certain countries… This is China fault?? hehe
