That first one is so ludicrous that I won't go any further.

You'd think no one on the internet had heard of dramatic license.

the way people carry on you think people never heard of marketing and that no matter what it comes down to who holds the cash.

It's a great story. Love it.

If I wanted something "historically accurate," I would read a book, ffs

The main problem with the Bates/Anna story line for this season is that they already covered the "Is Bates a murderer, or not" last season.

Lazy writing is worse than historical inaccuracy, imo.

Do you think soap opera is "dramatic"?

Well, it does touch on one of the main problems with the show: the upstairs folks have to be unrealistically benevolent and humane to the servants in order to be likable enough to avoid turning viewers off.

Some families were really close to their servants, some weren't.  There's one house where the servants' corridors are filled with paintings and photos of servants going back over 200 years, each with a little poem about them.

Then there were houses had to face the wall and avert their eyes if they happened to run into a family member, places where you would be fired for speaking to ant member of the family.

Now if they would only fact check their own articles.

If we wanted accuracy, we'd watch Masterpiece Theater.

I wanted to like it. But the show is a bore. The scripts are barely better than All My Children.

I would have thought they'd be more concerned with not stepping on the ant members of the family.

I'm no historian, but I'm pretty sure Thomas would have gotten the heave-ho (or been imprisoned) when his appetite for dick came to light, regardless of how helpful he was to others.
