The Forsyte Saga Episode 1 The Forsyte Saga is my new favorite show. It seems to be a mini-series as far as I can tell but I am in love with it, and I cannot wait to read the book! You know me and my British obsession. The Forsyte Saga has everything I love, tragedy, forbidden love, intense romance, hatred, scandal and the properness of uptight rich gentlemen and ladies. It really can’t get any better for me I don’t think. I really must thank Netflix for knowing me so well and always showing me their British television selections to make sure I never miss another good English drama again for as long as I live. I know The Forsyte Saga isn’t the stuff reality tv dreams are made of but the drama and romance in British novels are even more vivid once made in to shows, for me anyway. I would choose these stories over Jerseylicious any day. When they love it is immediate and intense in which both parties are willing to face ruin, poverty, and even sometimes death for the one they love all with out ever being taken out on a date or receiving a gift from Louis Vuitton. These are the relationships I fantasize about and go figure a juice head gorilla doesn’t even factor into the equation. Not to say the characters in all of the English novels are gems but there was a certain reserve and eloquence to everyone. They still wanted to appear to be refined, unlike most characters of late. I know you might think The Forsyte Saga will bore you to tears but watch just one episode and a guarantee you will be hooked!
