What’s Cancelled … What’s Coming Back?

Stay in On Saturday & Watch Ripper Street (it’s flawless)

‘Ripper Street,’ With Matthew Macfadyen, on BBC America – NYTimes.com.

You definitely won’t be sorry.

The premiere episode was absolutely delicious. I’m still trying to decide who I like better, Detective Inspector Edmund Reid (center, Matthew Macfadyen), Drake (Jerome Flynn, on the left) or Capt. Homer Jackson (Adam Rothenberg, on the right) who is definitely my kind of man since he’s into death and forensics.

I mean if you doubt the NYTimes, don’t bother clicking on the link above and reading their ringing endorsement of the show, this is my second write-up of it.

I will suggest that you set your DVR, because it does take a while for your ears to get use to that fine English language they spoke over there in them days (gosh what horrible grammar).

After viewing both episodes, I’ll be DVRing them just so I can watch them more than once. I promise you, they are just… that… good. It’s like watching a little movie onto itself. They are FLAWLESS.

Don’t let the title give you the slightest doubt. The closest this show is to Ripper anything is that it’s being done in the same time frame and in the same neighborhood. Other than that, you’ll forget all about Jack-The-Ripper after the first episode.

Besides, they’ll be plenty of other drama to be engrossed in during the coming episodes and  you’ll be oh, so engrossed.
