TV tonight: Lily James and Dominic West star in The Pursuit of Love .......... Emily Mortimer's adaptation of Nancy Mitford's tale of love and passion between the wars begins.

This is awful! I love the books and earlier TV series was so much better. angry

It's on but I cannot summon up a jot of interest or enthusiasm for it so far.

Oh dear, we needed something to fill the Line of Duty slot but this is not it.

Husband has gone to watch on another television. I'm not wasting any more time...back to Shtisel!

Ellianne Sun 09-May-21 21:44:10

I'm giving up too! Totally unrealistic.

Callistemon Sun 09-May-21 21:44:31

I might go to bed and read my book.
It's dire.

Truly awful. Really disappointed in this. Whoever chose the music wants shooting. It just doesn’t match the period whatsoever.

EllanVannin Sun 09-May-21 21:52:46

I'm watching Jane McDonald and her cruising.

My dogs mum and sister were Lord Merlins black whippets. It does seem a bit manic though.

Jaxjacky Sun 09-May-21 21:56:00

Had already decided not to watch it, so golf on for Mr J after he ‘endured’ Call the Midwife 🙂

Kim19 Sun 09-May-21 21:56:32

EV ditto. I did give Pursuit half an hour. Jane's the better option methinks.

15 minutes here - what on earth?

Alegrias1 Sun 09-May-21 22:04:52

Oh. I enjoyed it 😯

Calendargirl Sun 09-May-21 22:05:53

Nodded off in the last 15 minutes, might catch up on I player, but pretty stupid.

eazybee Sun 09-May-21 22:06:59

I loved it!
Didn't think I would, but found it hilarious.
In the spirit of the book.

Namsnanny Sun 09-May-21 22:07:43

Shame, it's totally missed the mark!

I really dont like Lily watsit as Linda

TerriBull Sun 09-May-21 22:09:43

I quite liked it too and the soundtrack.........also Andrew Scott's in it smile

GrandmaKT Sun 09-May-21 22:10:02

I enjoyed it! I love when they put modern music on a period drama. To me, it makes it more relatable.

Namsnanny Sun 09-May-21 22:10:17

I expected it to be fun eazybee but no sorry it missed all the marks for me.
I was looking forward to it as well.

BlueBelle Sun 09-May-21 22:12:27

Dreadful programme it was awful I watched it all with a sinking heart texted my daughter to say I was finding it awful and she texted back ‘I only lasted 5 minutes’
A load of old squit

Shandy57 Sun 09-May-21 22:15:54

I was looking forward to but didn't enjoy it .... but I didn't enjoy the first programme of Bridgerton, either, and did when I got into it. I'm going to give it a binge watch on BBCIplayer tomorrow.

What a complete load of rubbish. Bitterly disappointed.

lemsip Sun 09-May-21 22:19:22

oh dear, what rubbish. Had read the book and expected better. 15 minutes was enough.

Aveline Sun 09-May-21 22:22:29

The music ruined it. The dancing was all wrong too. The books are so good that it almost hurts to see what a mess the trendy production team have made of this one.

Casdon Sun 09-May-21 22:23:50

I really liked it, it was as breathless and giddy as the book.
