*Bumping up old thread*
Heads up to US members: the 2nd season of "Mr. Selfridge" starts March 30th and goes for 8 episodes.
Should be interesting to see what happens during the war years!

Update: an extended preview of the new season! Enjoy!

It's about halfway through here, they've had a bit of a gap so things have moved on a bit. Quite enjoying it, better than Downton anyway! Although it does feel a bit rushed, it's quite an easy watch for a Sunday night.

Alfie Boe guest appearance

Post by princess garnet » Fri April 25th, 2014, 4:25 pm

Who else has been watching the 2nd season?

This Sunday's 5th episode features famed British tenor Alfie Boe guest starring as Richard Chapman. For those who've been watching the series, you may remember Lady Mae Loxely was a chorus girl before her marriage. (Video available to US viewers)

Thanks! The extra security for product placement wasn't a shocker, but I didn't know!

I remember reading about the perfume bottles when it was shown here.

Thoughts on Final Episode

Post by princess garnet » Mon May 19th, 2014, 11:38 pm

If you watched the final episode last night, what did you think of it?

For me, it was bittersweet. For example, Rose's news,
having read the book by Lindy Woodhead, that was true to Harry's life.
I'm glad some of the story threads were tied up with a lead into the 3rd season for others.

I also thought Mr. Grove would've spoken to Harry about Mr. Thackeray's allegations against Henri. That fell by the wayside.

The PBS station I was watching showed a repeat of "Secrets of Selfridges" when the show ended at 10:30 pm. It'd been on before so I passed after a few minutes.
