Like the first series the plot is realistic and the characters very solid, very aware of their place. They are characters of their time and don't pretend to have 21st Century values in a 19th Century world. And I still want to kick William in the butt - he is such a good character that he REALLY generates a emotional response from me. Mostly the need to smack him around.
And the character of Monica felt off. The Campbell family came off as so proper and aware of their image...yet they allow the oldest girl to dress and act like that?!?!? Funny thing is I was starting to feel sorry for the Campbell family till...well, that be spoilers. I guess the Japanese needed a villain for the piece. I think it would have been better off if they left out the Bad Guy and let the lovers have to deal with the real problem - deciding if their love was important enough to break away from their class, their culture, and their society. Would they be strong enough to believe in themselves? Sad to say, we will never really know. The ending was not as realistic as I would have hoped and did leave some loose ends.Read more ›
As it begins, Mrs. Stowner's sad but natural passing has left Hakim - who isn't going to be in England forever - as the only remaining champion of Emma and William's relationship. Emma is, fortunately, not out on the streets, as she's quickly employed by mischievous, unconventional German expatriate Dorothea Molders - the woman she met at the train station at the end of the last set - who turns out to be a wonderful employer. Meanwhile, to Hakim's disappointment and dismay, William proposes to Eleanor in an attempt to please his father and forget Emma.
Of course, this is a romance, so an outrageous coincidence throws Emma and William together again and William realizes his terrible mistake. But by that time Emma has started spending time with Mrs. Molders' gruff but kind handyman Hans, with whom she has alot in common - and if William humiliates Eleanor and the Campbell family by breaking the engagement at a late stage, it might ruin his father's business, his brothers' employment prospects, and his sisters' marriage prospects all in one shot, in addition to profoundly hurting Eleanor, who he doesn't love but considers a friend...
Can William convince Emma that they can defy convention, as well as convince his family that she is worth the financial downsizing they might all face if he leaves Eleanor for Emma?Read more ›
I found this show (both seasons) to be a bit dull and slow-paced, which made it boring at times. Plus, there was some nudity in this show that seemed really out of place, tacky, and unnecessary. However it does have it's good points. My favorite character is the carefree, eccentric prince from India, because he is the most interesting and he livens up the story. His silent servants are quite funny too. There are some scenes that are more exciting and progress the story along nicely that I enjoyed. I'm glad I watched it once, but there won't be a second time. (24 episodes, 12 episodes a season/Japanese Language with English Subtitles)
