I heard a lot of buzz on Twitter about a show called Poldark. Basically what I gleaned is that it's a period drama, it stars Aidan Turner (AKA: Kili the Dwarf from The Hobbit), and that people liked it. Personally, that was enough for me to give it a try.
I'm so glad I did. I LOVE THIS SHOW. Granted, I'm pretty easy to please when it comes to period dramas. But this is an excellent show. The acting is stellar, the setting and costumes- beautiful, the characters fleshed out. I'm not big on the Warleggan's- right now they just seem bad for the sake of needing bad guys, so I really hope if they do a second season (which I'm pretty sure they are) that they give these characters more of a backstory.
Aidan Turner is a swoon-worthy hero, in both looks and his character. I'm a little surprised about this because I didn't notice it during the Hobbit movies, even with his elf/dwarf love story. But I believe his shirtless scythe scene was one of the top moments of TV in 2015 or something like that. (LOL)
The best part of this show to me though is Demelza. Eleanor Tomlinson does such an amazing job playing Demelza. Even the small things she does that aren't that noticeable but clearly show Demelza's upbringing compared to Ross's are just brilliant. She really makes the show for me. I haven't finished the first season yet so there will be heck to pay if they do something to her by the end of the season. *no spoilers please*
Have you watched POLDARK and what do you think of it? If not, definitely check out this show if you like period dramas.
