Mr. Selfridge (US broadcast)

Post by princess garnet » Sat March 30th, 2013, 7:00 pm

The 8 part series "Mr. Selfridge" begins airing on PBS's "Masterpiece Classic" here in the US on Easter Sunday.

There's an online chat with Jeremy Piven the next day; it's at 1 pm Eastern time.
I found a wikipedia article about the real life Harry Selfridge.

Will be interesting to see how it goes down in the US.
By the way, it was ten episodes here. Hope it's just divided up differently rather than being cut down.

I meant to mention this, so thanks for doing it! :)

Hope they're streaming the show. I really want to see it.

Anyone else watch the series finale last night?

A lot happened within an hour and half! After what happened with Miss Bunting
things headed south. There were a few bright moments--Agnes and Victor for example. In the end, there were threads to lead into season 2.
When the show ended, there was a brief interview of Jeremy Piven talking a little bit about the next season. One of things he said that it would start in 1914.

There's a non-fiction book about Mr. Selfridge titled Shopping, Seduction, & Mr. Selfridge by Lindy Woodhead

Finally caught up with the DVR. I've enjoyed the series and looking forward to the next season. Interesting choice to skip ahead five years--the children will be grown up!

I've got all eight episodes on the DVR. Probably won't get to watch them until school's out when I will probably finish them all in two days!
