Does anyone know anyone who is good with electronics who can program my DVD player to be able to automatically take some actions. My request is very specific.
You see, the DVD player needs to firstly recognise that the disc that has been put in there is North and South (the Elizabeth Gaskell version not the US version, although I wouldn't really mind watching that one again either).
The second requirement is that the DVD player must understand that as soon as I have finished watching the second disc that it automatically needs to reset itself so that I can watch the final scene over and over again, at least four or five times in succession. The DVD must also understand that it is likely that this sequence of events is going to need to be followed quite regularly for a number of days, and also that it could be that I might wish to replay numerous other scenes randomly as well.
Of course, if my DVD player could be coordinated with my computer so that it knows that not longer after watching the last scene of North and South several times I am going to NEED to go to Youtube and watch the final two episodes of The Vicar of Dibley where Richard Armitage co-stars that would be great too! He's too damn fine to just watch in just one show!
That final scene of North and South....sigh........ could I just say that he had me at "Where are you going?"
I am so glad that my son gave me this for Christmas, even though I had to buy it and wrap it myself. It's a bit sad really. I gave myself Elizabeth and Pride and Prejudice for Christmas as well, but I still haven't unwrapped the plastic off those DVDs yet! Maybe by the time we get to February I will be ready to crack them open!
If you want to read more about the Great North and South Crusade, I think that campaign headquarters are to be found over at Ramblings on Romance!.
By the way, even though Richard Armitage is definitely one of THE best reasons to watch North and South, he is not the only reason. I can't remember who, but someone mentioned that Nicholas Higgins was quite good too..and I have to agree! If you want someone a bit rougher around the edges he is definitely worth giving a look.
