I don't want to give away too much by going deeper into the plot. When I first saw North & South, I immediately thought, why haven't I seen this before?! I'm a fan of Jane Austen, and I'd put this right up there with the Colin Firth version of Pride & Prejudice. That is high praise coming from me. Margaret Hale is outspoken and strong, in the same vein as Elizabeth Bennet. John Thornton is also similar to Mr. Darcy. He makes a terrible impression at first, but as you get to know him, and as he gets to know Margaret, not only does she bring out the best in him, but it is revealed that he was good at heart all along. Also, you can probably tell by the fact that I have put four pictures of him in this post that I think Richard Armitage is pretty good looking.
