To be Revisited Time and Again ...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brideshead Revisited, Collector's Edition [DVD] (DVD)
Yes, the other reviews have said it. This is a classic for all time - and a big surprise as it came from ITV (Granada) rather than the more expected BBC camp. But Granada in the 1980s was coming up with some magnificent drama series, of which this one carries away the prize.
You can't fault it, and why would you want to ? Everything about it is of the highest quality, and it is mesmerising from the moment the picture fades in at the start of Episode One.
See it, and you will wonder why on earth the feature-film version (2008) ever went into production. A cynical exercise if ever there was one, and an end product that is sadly lacking in both quality and class. Something rather important to the original book, I'd have thought!
Buy this one, and if you've never read the book, read it and love it - and then watch the series again. And again. It can take it!
