As my good deed for the day, I lent my copy of North & South to a friend.
Before you Awww! over how wonderful I am, I did wait until I ordered a more jazzed up version of the DVD before letting the old one out of my hands…
I just couldn’t imagine not having it in my possession for a week and so… But this is not the place or the time to talk about THAT issue…
I couldn’t wait for her feedback, when it came it was quite unexpected.
She was disappointed!
Oh shock, oh horror, how could that be?
Does this do nothing for you?
What about this?
I was just about to question my buddy’s sanity and the validity of our friendship when she continued:
I didn’t like the ending!
I’m sorry, what now?
I didn’t like the ending, he proposed, she rejected him. The ending was disappointing!
Oh, I sighed.
The fog had lifted.
That silly willy had watched the first disc only and DIDN’T pop in the second!
So for those who have made that mistake (I really hope there aren’t many of you around) let me reassure you: N&S does have a happy ending, the storyline of the strike is explained and resolved and it gets a lot worse for everyone before it gets much better.
So do not pause until you have reached the famous:
“Look back at me”
Do not stop until you’ve heard:
“You‘re coming home with me?
Oh, heck, let’s revisit it again…
