  1. Another Jane Eyre? Oh my Charleybrown feel totally updated and in the loop now. Thanks for the info.

  2. You're welcome! I do wonder how this one will compare...

  3. Oooooo! THE BIG VALLEY!!!! Very excited! Can't wait to see that one! OK, I'll go first: Hugh Jackman as Nick Barkley!!!

  4. Sounds great! I will be looking forward to many of these.

  5. Why would anyone bother with another Jane Eyre when the Toby Stephens one is perfect?! :-)

  6. Teresa, does Hugh know that he's been cast? I assume you and his agent are close :) I'm wondering how they will transform a long running series into a feature film!

    Muse and Heidi, I agree!
