...whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same...

Anybody who loves period pieces who isn't watching WUTHERING HEIGHTS on Masterpiece Classic (which is on PBS here in the States) should either get with the program or reexamine the decision not to watch.

It sure doesn't hurt that actor Tom Hardy (THE VIRGIN QUEEN, ROCKNROLLA, SWEENEY TODD and Masterpiece's upcoming OLIVER TWIST) brings some raw intensity to the role of Heathcliff. I do declare -- I just might swoon. What is it with me and these bad boys, anyway? Wouldn't want one in real life but between the pages of a book or on the silver screen, bring 'em on.

It's funny how these classics are filmed over and over yet there always seems to be a fresh approach with the story -- or with casting -- that opens up a whole new perspective. But one perspective that does not change is that Emily Bronte's WUTHERING HEIGHTS has few, if any, equals in the "lost love" category.

And no better example of carpe diem.
