'ANNA KARENINA'
HITS SMALL SCREENS AGAIN?
There were a lot of Karenina film adaptations recently
Good news, people, as Deadline reports, a new small screen version of famous Russian classic ANNA KARENINA is in works, the bad news, it will be done by Gwyneth Hughes, who massacred Thackeray's Vanity Fair recently over at ITV turning it into one of the most dull series we've seen in recent times. Fingers crossed she does not rape and kill Tolstoy's novel the same way. It is a complex story which follows dozens of major characters similar to his War and Peace. It mainly follows Russian noble woman Anna Karenina who has an affair with a dashing cavalry officer that scandalizes Saint Petersburg social circles. The pair initially flee to Italy before returning to Russia, where their lives further unravel. I'm guessing it will also be at ITV as Hughes is doing a Keeley Hawes thriller for them currently.

  1. Nurses are always a good subject.

    I'm following the blog of a surgery nurse. I'm curious about her as she looks and acts rather weird.
    When I started following, I left a comment. It got deleted and I thought it was by mistake. I don't write offensive comments and I've seen dumber comments than mine.

    After a while , I left another comment. It again got deleted, so I understood there was no mistake here. So I left a third comment suggesting that she uses Blogger moderation feature which I use, and find it wonderful. If you don't like a comment you can elegantly not publish it at all, and in this way you don't have to shame the commenter by dleting his comments(By the way, I publish ANY comment. I need the moderation only for spam).
    From her next post, I understood that she commplained to Blogger about me. I don't even remember the nature of her complaint.

    1. What a strange story, but I can tell you from my experience as a teacher that medical people are usually the weirdest. Most manipulative and lying students I had teaching English to adults, were actually doctors :)
      I can't for the life of me imagine why'd she complain of you, you're one of the kindest people around Blogger. She must be some crazy woman.

  2. Ooooo, "Seacole" sounds good -- something fresh and new. But jeez, do we REALLY need ANOTHER film of "Anna Karenina"?

    1. Not a film, series, Debs :) I just hope they don't cast some idiot in the leading role, like Keira Knightley in the latest film.

  3. Dear God, not another Anna Karenina!!! I'm convinced storytellers are nonexistent anymore. Let's keep recycling the same stuff over and over and over again. When will it end!?!?!?

    1. I wish they would do Taras Bulba, that one was really epic! Or Ivan Grozni or Peter the Great, not always Catherine the Great....
