Just an FYI for those who care, it looks like I'll be giving Any Human Heart a pass on the blog and resume reviewing Masterpiece Classic productions with the encore of The 39 Steps in a few weeks. Due to content issues and a complete lack of anything resembling a compelling and sympathetic lead character (in my opinion, anyway), I was sadly not hooked by this production at all.
I may give Any Human Heart another chance when it releases on DVD, but there's too many other blog-worthy topics in my mental queue for me to want to slog through Heart as it airs right now - which is sad since the cast is really fantastic.
If you watched Part One last night, I'd love to hear your thoughts!
A Blue Ridge Biltmore Weekend!
